    Greetings Large Format Photographers,

    After waiting several months for AIPAD to determine dates for 2010 no one yet knows when the event will take place.

    The New England Large Format Photography Collective had hoped to announce the 3rd annual Cancer Benefit (aka Raid Our Gallery) to coincide with this grand exhibition of photography in NYC. That is not going to happen.

    Only time will tell if we have waited too long to publicize the next Raid Our Gallery for 2010. The grand reception and exhibition will be one of the middle Thursdays of April 2010 here in central Connecticut.

    More information will be forthcoming but we felt it imperative to make the LF community aware of our ongoing commitment to this most worthwhile cause.

    Warm Regards, Steve Sherman

    I will say that this is a great cause and very fun event. I recommend every one with a large format camera join in. It is something not to be missed.

    I will second David's comments and say that I will definitely be participating again in this worthy event. I hope that many of you LFers will also decide to join in on the fun.

    I will donate prints with pleasure to this worthy cause. I have been empowered by the previous evenings with Raid Our Gallery & look forward to the next.

    Ok, Ok
    the only reason I am coming to this event is because Paul Paletti is bring up his pistachio kickaboo juice.
    I will try to avoid Monty, pretty hard with his flamboyant dress, and I was only kidding , I really do like you Art , if you show up this will be a great event.
    We will be staying at the Mariott which is just a stones throw from Steve's' This was very handy at this year's event as Mr Paletti introduced me to his wonderful juice and luckily I could walk home.
    Barney and Lucy will be coming this time to guide me if I get lost again.

    Could you please remove any reference to Dinesh on this thread, he may see it and remember that I use to let him in my shop. The whole Elevator move this month was done to confuse him and stop him from dropping in and visiting us.
    All of my staff would really appreciate him not seeing this thread and figuring out where we are.
