Hey everyone
First thing, we need to vote on a night for our meeting. Next week, monday-friday. Pick it. You have until Friday night.

*At the meeting we will discuss and vote on:
When we will have our meetings for the rest of the year. If you want your voice heard, you have to be at the meeting next week.

*Location for our meetings. Next week we will try and have it at the green mill, but it depends on what day we pick and if its available.

*What our agenda will be this year. If you have ideas on what you would like to see from our group, come prepared. If you cant make it, have someone else bring it up.
**Per Brian: work towards a DPG photo show with a theme.
***Building on that per Edge: Perhaps at the Aquarium.




If you have any other agenda please type below.

Thanks, cant wait to start seeing you all again!

Not Tuesday (Duluth-Superior Camera Club meeting)

Wednesday is my vote.


Agenda item -- work this year for another DPG exhibit to be shown in March or April. Maybe even a theme (like 'outside-of-the-box portraits,' or 'artistic views of everyday objects,' or whatever.)

DPG: Josh needs all of us to shoot his wedding. I hear he got stuck with a real hack ;)
admin

is the wedding an opportunity to use the 2 for 1 Vivitar film cameras?

Heeeey, perhaps it's the homebrew talking, but at that price we could buy a bunch of them and set up a 360 degree simultaneous shot, all Matrix-y.

But seriously congrats Josh, hope it's a great wedding.

oh... and building off Brian's idea perhaps we could do a theme that'll let us pitch it too the Great Lakes Aquarium. Their gallery is tucked away in the corner, but would be pretty good exposure.

I vote Monday since I work until 10pm the rest of the week. :)

*just kidding, I'm busy Monday anyways...
Hey Josh, best wishes for a great wedding and a life together that truly compliments each other! Here's sending prayers and good wishes your way!!!

As for a meeting, I will be on my way to Wells NV to see my husband...gone till Oct...have fun!!!

LOVE Brian's idea of a themed show and a theme to pitch might be a good thing...however, I really like the portrait idea...maybe something like 'outside-of-the-box' portraits that include water somehow?...

Outside the box inside the water? :)
Well, for sure Thursday and Friday are out. Tuesday also. I have to cast my vote for Wednesday. :( Sorry Amanda. We will hang out well after 10 in case you want to come out too :)

OK, so of course Green Mill is already booked on Wednesday! So, heres some other ideas I had for a location this time:
Red Mug (coffee and I think a few beers)
BU (they have nommy beer but can be pretty loud)
if its nice, outside at a park


Any other ideas? If you know of a place let me know! Feel free to vote on this too if you like ;)

Beaners?

Red Mug closes at 7 PM during the week. I don't have any other ideas though.

Upstairs at Zeitgeist? (or the lobby area), they have food and alcohol, not sure about exact hours.

TPB or Clyde Iron sound good to me, though I'd be up for anywhere.
admin
TPB would be great. I have been in need of their pizza for some time now.
admin
Pretty positive on the Red Mug hours and their website lists them as closing at 7 PM during the week too. I'm up for any of the other places though. TPB is always good and has plenty of space for us.

Beaner's One Week Live is going on this week, so they will be packed and charging a hefty cover. The Sunset bar and grill has a room off the back. It is just a mile or two down Rice Lake Road. Wednesday works for me and I'm okay with wherever and whenever. :)

Anyone down for riding together to haul my ass over there? I could meet ya near the corner of 7th and Mesaba.
enchanted afternoon [deleted] 8 years ago
Actually...I might have a ride, but a backup is always a good thing. ;)
admin
I'm not going to make it. I've got the stupid head cold that is going around and I'm planning on crawling into bed 2.2 seconds after my husband arrives home.

And of course there is a live band playing until 9ish... we may have to do sign language back and forth ha! They said they would set aside a large area for us, so if you come in tell them you are with the DPG meeting.
Amanda~Christine 8 years ago
I'll be there at 10. If everyone leaves before then could someone text me...
admin

Oh I'm sure we won't! ;)
Classic TPB:
Me: " we want to have a meeting there. 10-15 people"
Girl: "no problem, we will reserve you some tables"

I get to TPB and no tables big enough are reserved.
Girl: " there's a table in the bar room, table over there, and a table over here. That should seat all of y'all right?"

No worries, the people next to my table are leaving soon.
