    I am organizing this with the cooperation of a local photo store. They emailed the date and time out to their mailing list and I get to take it from there.

    GreyWolf, Ian Greant are suppose to show up and hopefully Ken Miller too. We have had a pretty good response to the email so will keep you posted.

    I am going to try real hard to make sure this group doesn't become a "club" with all the usual BS that goes with that.

    It's amazing how many LF'ers came out of the woodwork.

    Good luck - we've put together a similar group in NE Florida/SE Georgia - no meetings, no officers, no dues, no contests - thus no club. We get together once a month and go somewhere to take photographs and talk shop. Great fun.
