One Shot 2023-2024

Presentation Director: Jake Mosser
Coordinator: Susan Mosser
Equipment: Rick Cloran


Recap of 2023-2024 competition: One of the most fun evenings was held on April 1 - our One Shot competition. The Women were so hoping to continue their good luck streak after winning last year for the first time in three years. Our judges - Sarah Musumeci and Don Toothaker - had a very lively exchange of comments about each and every one of the images. It was hilarious and got everyone in the mood for a rowdy evening. Which it was!!!!

A contest of 29 images between the Men and Women of the club.

The Men had a very strong start by winning the first 3 categories.
But the Women caught up.
And the Men came back getting the next 4 rounds.

The back-and-forth ensued - The Women got 1.
The Men got 2.
The Women got 3 more, including the most hilarious commentary about the Child Under 8 and the poor little kid who was down wind of the other!!

The Men 2 more.
The Women the next 4.

Then the Men with the next 3 and the Women with the 26th, 27th, and 28th categories.

It was a respectable showing by both sides with it coming to a tie on the 28th image!!

But alas and alack, the last image went to the Men.

It was a very close evening. But the final score was Men - 15 and Women - 14. Congrats to the Men! A good showing by everyone. Great fun was had by all. It was nice to see a full hall and lots of red worn by the women and sports paraphenalia worn by the men.

A special thanks to our judges: Sarah Musumeci, MNEC from Merrimack Valley Camera Club, and Don Toothaker Director of Hunt's Photo Adventures. Their bantering was comical! Thanks so much Sarah and Don!
