A Death in the Family

It's with the deepest regret that I have to announce the passing of an integral member of Mossley80.

After four and a bit years of covering Mossley through wind, rain, hail, sleet and snow, my trusty digital camera has died.

It developed complications during the Woodley game at Cheadle last Sunday and, though it rallied briefly on Monday, it made its way to the Pearly AND, OR and NOT Gates of Digital Heaven just before kick-off on Tuesday.

It will be greatly missed and leaves behind four batteries, a mini USB lead and an owner who now has a bit of a problem.

It's last ever photo...(sniff)

R.I.P Nikon Coolpix 2100

Thank you.

Paint Shop Pro and some judicious cropping have helped along the way but for a 2MP compact camera it performed above and beyond the call of duty.

In fact, given the conditions it's mostly been used in, I'm surprised its actually lasted as long as it has.

Trust there will be 1 minutes "shutter releasing" on Saturday before the game....and a trip to Argos for yourself on Saturday morning ??

Will the camera be buried in the ground under the Lal Quilla Stand ?
