500 Plus

We are a group of 500 now.

A little over a year ago, MeTakePhoto started this group and the first meetup had just a hand full of people show up.

To give you some understanding of our size... there is only one city/metro area with a larger group. That would be Seattle, but Vancouver BC is right behind us. There aren't any other city groups that come close to us in size. That is awsome.

I would like to thank all those who have participated in making this such a great group.

Maybe some of that growth can be attributed to the generous, warm reception a necomer receives from this group. I joined recently and have appreciated the warm welcome, insightful comments by members, and immediate opportunities to participate in local haps. Thanks to all. -- GB

500+, David Hobby should be showing up anytime!
gb-photo couldn't have said it better. Thanks to all. Now I just need to make it to a meet up this year. It's been way to long.
I have to give Jeff and some of other core members for keeping the group interesting and active. The regular events, the active posting on the group, and a genuinely friendly culture certainly has come together to make this a group people want to belong to and get value from. Let's keep it going!!

very nice!
Awesome! I know I've learned a ton since joining the group and Jeff should be anointed a saint for starting it.

I'm looking forward to some fun meet up this summer when the weather is better.

Man do I feel late to the party, I'm probably member 495. :) But this is cool, glad to see the group growing. I think this is also the largest Portland area photography group as well.
