Here is the list of people for Horton's from my memory:
Brian
Aaron
Jason
Shawn
Randall
Rich
They can only handle 6 photographers so it's all filled up. If you name is on this list and you choose not to come please post to this thread ASAP so others can get on board. *** we need to finalize the list and I will e-mail the list of names to them by the end of the day Friday. Also, for proprietary (and/or trademark) reasons, we will not be able to shoot Jungle Boy, nor his other big name chaos Coley?
Chuck Horton wants us all to show up at the same time, so it was discussed to possibly meet somewhere in advance to make sure we are all ready. Maybe we should pick a coffee shop downtown nearby to meet first -- feel free to pick one and just say that is where we will meet. Shall we say 4:00 and be at Horton's at 4:30? Set that in stone if you wish.

Oh, one other thing: The people attending must agree to give some of their images on CD to the Gym, and the club will make some prints for him (those details will be worked out later).

By the way, I would put up the thread myself, but flickr is blocked at school and the quicker it is up, the better!

I'll have to sneak out of work a bit early.

There's a lot going on here that I don't know how to do, including using remote strobes and shooting sports. Also, I don't know jack about boxing. That's kind of why I want to be in on this... stretching my experience and learning something. However, if there's someone who really, really, really wants to go who will provide more "quality" than I can provide, I am willing to bow out.

Hmmmm, yeah if someone ducks out I would like to go. I haven't done this before, do you just walk around and shoot?

I shot Jungle Boy and Chaos last year for the oncampus newspaper here at UMD. It was over on the UWS campus, and was probably one of my favorite nights shooting an event.

Let's keep in mind that Brian set this up for a new and different photography opportunity. Horton's has been more than accommodating and welcoming. I'm not sure if were poking fun at the sport or any person in mind but we need to consider that Horton's may very well take a look at the group that he is opening his doors to and if there are comments mocking the sport of boxing or anyone associated with them it will show poorly upon us as a group and most likely get the planed event of DPG taking photos of the gym canceled. Let's keep this and any other planned event posts professional and only post positive comments please.

Are you referring to my previous comment, which someone kindly edited out of existence? If so, it was a humorous reference to the banter that occurred at the meeting last night.

I don't have the impression that anyone is poking fun at the sport of boxing... granted, I know very little about it, but I think that everyone agrees -- this individual is kind of enough to give us the opportunity to try something new. I, for one, am grateful.

I'm not sure what it was in reference to. I was not at the meeting but with talk of Tarzan and what not I felt it could be taken the wrong way. Like I said I was not at the meeting but after reading the comment I felt it could be taken the wrong way so I deleted it.

Those of you on the list above, please verify either on this thread or another that you ARE or ARE NOT going to be able to go.

Also, where should we meet at 4:00?

HBR,

Anything special I need to use your lights? I don't have any remotes... does someone have one that I can use?

Jason

Jason, if you have a hot-shoe and/or pc socket, you can use my lights. And I will have a flash meter ready for those using film.

OK, here is the final list I am sending to Chuck today (like NOW):

Brian
Aaron
Jason
Randall
Shawn

Nate, if Rich doesn't get ahold of me after I e-mail him right now, you are in as well. I will let you know either way via flickr mail over the weekend.

We still haven't decided upon a place to meet -- Jitter's? Luce? I really don't know what it best for downtown around Lake Ave. just to hang out for a while before we walk over to the Gym. I'm looking for feedback!!!! Remember it is WEDNESDAY at 4:00.
admin
Starbuck has plenty of parking in the upper lot.

HBRstudios 11 years ago
Nate, looks like you are in, unless Rich comes through soon!

Rich, I saw you at Beargrease and totally forgot to mention this! My apologies! Get back to me ASAP if you are still interested.

My new lens is coming on the 30th......UPS.

I bet it is a late afternoon delivery, ugggggggh.

HBRstudios 11 years ago
OK, we have it filled and Rich is going to take the last spot -- there was a mixup with the flickr mail with Rich's first note.

Wednesday, 4:00 at ????????

So let's all meet at Starbucks on Superior St. at 4:00. I am going to try and park close to Horton's, since I have the lighting equipment to haul in.

Horton's is at 23 W 1st St.

C-ya there!
admin
Hambone Lewinski 11 years ago
What's a good place to park down there? Am I stuck pumping the meter?

Jason
admin
you only have to pump the meter 1 time till we head over to Horton's. 25 cents.
admin
There is a big parking lot across from the DAC half way up the avenue betweeen Superior St. and 1st Street.

oh this is today, huh?

i almost forgot.

see you guys at 4
admin
My new lens is "Out For Delivery" what are the chances I will get it in time for tonight?
I really would hate to leave that package on the porch all night due to it's value.
admin
Hambone Lewinski 11 years ago
Well... what time does UPS usually arrive? At my apartment a few years ago, we got it at like 10 AM. This was awesome for brew days; I could order stuff from Northern Brewer one morning and brew the next morning.

Now at my house at West he gets there at like 5:30 PM. Kind of sucks.

Jason
admin
It Varies. I went home for lunch and it wasn't there. Sometimes he is there areound 3:30, sometimes 4:30 or 5:30.
admin
Ok, it is 2:10 and I am at home patiently waiting.............
