I'm one of the people who are supposed to be "in charge" of organizing meetings. I can't do it this month though, I've got some difficult stuff going on and likely will not be at the next meeting either. Sorry all.

I don't have time to call Green Mill today. I am heading to a meeting. I know, I know, I am so damn professional and it shows at the meetings.

fallfaceforward (what is your real name?) if you would like to call and reserve it, that would be great.

Post here if it is booked and we will figure something out.

welcome to the Monthly meeting planners Club!

Just kidding. When I hear cake I scream out "marble!" too.

Is green mill going to like us bringing in outside food?
fallfaceforward 10 years ago
Aaron- i've already checked with Green Mill and they gave the 'ok' to bring cake.

Okay so other than marble- what about filling? cream cheese? lemon? chocolate mousse?

There was some question last night, but just to bump.. it IS the 30th right?
fallfaceforward 10 years ago

mb_wen 10 years ago
Arrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhh... wait.. I mean Aye!

I was curious if we could make a motion to do a quick how to, do's & don'ts, how not to p*ss off the bands, thoughts for event photography (i.e. homegrown) i'd really be appreciated.
Buttonhead 10 years ago
I will be there if my car gets fixed tomorrow.
MOD

admin
I might not make it? If so I will contact someone to relay any business I might have.
admin
I'll be there.

Edgewood, if you are reading this I will bring your Dreamweaver disk and book.

Meeting discussion topics so far:

1) Homegrown tutorial, band sign up (if you feel inclined to sign up)
2) Red Mug Show update---Who is in the show and do we have a set date for the opening?

MOD
Randall Cottrell 10 years ago

fallfaceforward 10 years ago

admin

NOT ATTENDING: duluthiscool.

WHY?: sorry. it's homegrown. everything and everything else is always on hold during homegrown. so... you can imply from this... that i will be out attending tonight's homegrown activities... rather than planning to attend homegrown activities...

NOTE: since i am NOT attending... i will NOT be bringing along the ballots for this months competition...

May Challenge is up. There are a few extra rules, but it should be fun.
MOD
mb_wen 10 years ago
So did I miss it or did we not talk about topic #1? Moreover the tutorial stuff, I do recall the attempted sign up.
admin
I think you missed it......we were very unorganized without Moe!

Basically just avoid using a flash because it will likely piss off some of the bands. Crank up your ISO so you can shoot in the dark and take advantage of all of the cool lighting colors at the shows. You shouldn't have any problems taking photos at any and all venues as they are all expecting photographers to be taking pictures.
