THE RAY TOLEMAN MEMORIAL TROPHY.


BFVS has won the Gloucester Inter-Club Competition again. You will remember that we won with "Vernon's Permutation" a few years ago. This time we won with a specially edited version of Julian Baldwin's film called "The Bath Buildathon".


The G.I-C.C. is a competition held annually amongst 7 clubs situated in the area in and near Gloucestershire. This year the competition was hosted by Worcester Film Makers and next year it will be the turn of BFVS to do the honours.
