For the latest update to the Judges Directory, Stan Robinson from Boscombe CC has informed us of his intention to retire from judging. In Stan’s own words:

Hi Ken
I have decided to hang up my laser pointer at the end of the year. No real problems except just getting old, I will honour all existing judging bookings for 2016 [and] I will still be here in the case of a judge last min no show or perhaps to mentor a new judge like I’ve been doing for SAPA. I’m still getting good positive feedback but approaching 80 I feel I should quit whilst I’m ahead. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all my years in judging and still do, it all started in Kent in the late 50s. I feel very sad just like I did when I retired from professional photography due to ill health at the time.
Oh well!
Stan. Robinson.

I’d like to place on record our thanks to Stan for his many years of service and to wish him well in his retirement.

… Ken Scott
Judging Advisor
