Monday 5th Milton Meeting
 
On Monday all the RYLA participants and Rotary Club of Balclutha met at the Milton T&C with the Milton club for their fortnightly meeting. We had a lovely buffet dinner by Kelly's Kitchen and enjoyed the presentations by the four groups of RYLA participants. They were asked to compile a series of photos over the weekend to represent their RYLA experience and each team put a huge amount of effort in and completely exceeded expectations! Hayden from Blacklabel Photography had presented with some photography advice on the first evening of the camp and was to judge the photos but on the day unfortunately could not make it to the meeting. The winning team was decided by the Rotary members who were won over by the video created by the blue team.
 
 
 
Blue team - photography competition winners by popular vote.
