Summer is a busy time of year, isn't it.

Just a thought, how about we start regular meetings back up in September?

This is not in any way meant to discourage anyone from having any kind of photo/social gatherings or outings. Just saying a break in regular meetings might be in order.

Or just tell me I'm full of it.

i take it this is in response to the fact that no one organized a meeting for June? lol

You are full of it....

But you are right, I rarely make summer meetings. Summers are busy for just about everyone.

~Sad face. But it probably makes sense for there's no sense in sitting inside when we can finally get outdooors during our time off.

I was going to start a thread about this months meeting, but i knew I would be able to make it so I didnt.
I am fine with starting back in September. Though, Id like to see everyone during the summer. Wasnt there supposed to be a BBQ at someones house...

I guess the official meetings can be put on hold till then. I would still like to get together and do some shooting in the meantime.

Didn't a photo shoot at Brighton Beach turn into a BBQ last summer...maybe that could work again...either both or just the BBQ...just a thought
admin
Yes, we grabbed the pavilion on the north end and did a bunch of shooting on the rocks, swings, etc...
It would be nice to do a little more of a structured meet this time so people actually learn what is going on.

I haven't followed this thread for a while... Great to see something in the works!!

I'm highly interested in a BBQ/Shoot combo- some great things could become of it...
nostalgicearth Posted 9 years ago. Edited by nostalgicearth (member) 9 years ago
when works for everyone the 2nd half of August for bbq/fire? We have a chunk of land that can be explored and my Grandps lives next door and has cool old farm equipment we could maybe shoot. Tuesdays and Wednesdays work best for me 'cause the husband is around to help me. I'm thinking potluck (side), BYOB, and I'll have burgers here unless you want to bring your own different meat.

If a date was set then I'll make sure to keep it open cause I'd definitely be game to attend.
