    Fantastic! Make sure to tell your recruits that with the discounted lodging at the Findlay Inn, it's $62/night for 1, $31 for 2, and $21 for 3. Better book soon, though, since rooms are filling fast!

    This is cool! I will plan to attend on Saturday, sounds like a great idea and a fun time!
     
  8. I now officially have two friends coming with me (and both young ladies are happy to be unofficial models when they're not shooting their own photos), and I'm working on getting another buddy to come along with us. I'm really looking forward to meeting the FPP gang and a gaggle of film enthusiasts. :smile:

    Cameras...no problem, the question is, will I take any pictures or just hang out and talk with people??

    It's my home town, I've kinda seen it. :D

    I do have my pair of K1000's a Spotmatic, two Zenit EM's a brace or Argus C3's, the Debonair, the Baby Speed Graphic (if I can get some film) an Argus 75, and the Omega 45E.......

    Packtastic!

    We had 50 people show up for the Walking Workshop (that's most out to any US based FPP event!) Even though the weather sucked on Saturday we still braved the wind and cold (and a bit of rain). Good times were had by all.

    Thank you all who came out.

    And BIG thanks to: Mat Marrash, Professor Jeff, Michael Raso, Leslie from Imagine That! and The Mecca, The Jones Mansion, The Findlay Inn & Conference Center, Baker Cafe, and the University of Findlay.
