On 25th June Wales will be playing either Northern Ireland or Turkey in the first knockout stage of Euro 2016. However before the big match there’s another huge event taking place. The Selwyn Samuel Centre, Llanelli, will be hosting a special one off version of Llanelli Photographic Society’s Sosban Trophy competition to celebrate the club’s 125th Anniversary. The competition usually takes place on a Wednesday evening with six clubs involved, but for this year only 16 clubs will battle it out for a one off trophy.
Details of the event can be found above, but the key points are that the doors are open from 12.30pm with the competition getting underway at 1.30pm. Early visitors will be able to view exhibited printed images created from scans of glass photographic plates that were taken by founding members of LPS. In addition we hope to have small stands from Fotospeed and Carmarthen Cameras.
Our judge for the day is Rob Mitchell MA Photography and he has the unenviable task of scoring the images as well selecting one stand out image from the entries. There will be refreshments at half time and we aim to have wrapped up proceedings by 4.30pm which hopefully will give everyone who wants to watch the football sufficient time to get home and ready for the game.
Note also that we will be holding a raffle on the day. There are prizes donated by DS Colour Labs, Carmarthen Cameras, Llanelly House, Fotospeed and members of LPS. Finally a thank you to everyone who has supported, helped and sponsored LPS – good luck to all the clubs involved – and we hope to see you on Saturday.
The LPS Sosban Trophy will be at The Selwyn Samuel Centre (Lliedi Suite), Llanelli. There’s free car parking at the site and hopefully plenty of space. Visitors who are looking for lunch beforehand may like to try Wetherspoons or any of the cafes, such as Avos, in town. You’ll also find Nandos, Costa and Burger King.
