Three Western Cape club members were again amongst the top nine performers in the February PSSA competitions. Two of them were first runners-up: Alida Heine from Tygerberg in the Junior Club competition with the image Swan Lake and Charles Naude of Hermanus with the image Vuurvinkie in the website competition. Michele-Ann Nel from Creative Camera Club was the second runner-up in the website competition with the image Trying to keep up.
In the Senior Club competition, the image Ostrich by Leney Stipp of Paarl narrowly missed a top three position with a score of 38. Dante Parisi of Fish Hoek (37 points) and Peter Hardcastle of Swartland, Juan Venter of Tafelberg and Bennie Vivier of Tygerberg all with a score of 36, were also among the Top 10 club entries.

It is heartening to see that four school clubs are among the Western Cape clubs that entered the February Junior Club competition – what’s more, Liza du Toit from Charlie Hofmeyer Hoërskool are among the Top 10 club entries with Top of the World. It scored the same as the entry from Tafklub, Sunrise drink by Karen van Zyl. Alida Heine from Tygerberg did us proud by being the first runner-up (see featured image).
