    I'm planning a LF gathering in the Toronto area for Friday March 31. I guess this is a kickoff to the spring shooting season. Of course we haven't had winter yet.

    If your interested in getting together as a casual group for dinner or drinks at Montana's Cookhouse at Islington and Queensway in Etobicoke let me know.
    The date is Friday March 31. I have a reservation for 6.30pm. This is open to anyone who shoots (or wants to shoot) sheet film, and/or their partner.
    I do have to give Montana's a final number so you have to let me know if you plan to come.

    This is the plan for the evening.... there's no plan.

    Show up, have a few laughs, a beverage, dinner if you want, show a few of your prints in a casual fun manner (optional of course), meet new people with similar interests, show off your new camera, look at a few prints in a fun positive manner, have a few more laughs, pay your own bill (not optional) and head home.

    I attended something like this a few weeks ago with a group of photographers and really enjoyed it.

    I realize some of you might not live in the Toronto area, but who knows maybe you're in in town that week.

    Again you do have to let me know.

    You can check out my website for more details... under gatherings.

    We're at 9 shooters so far, and maybe some spouses.

    Just a reminder about the dinner/gathering in Toronto this Friday March 31st. So far it looks like 12+ but there's room for more. Just let me know so I can let Montanas know the number.
    To get to the Montana's take the QEW and exit at Islington North. It's up a few blocks on the left hand side at the corner of Islington/Queensway.

    Hi there: I'll try to come. Being in Toronto gives me the opportunity so I'll take it.
    I tend to think of large format addicts as sort of solitary types, but since I'm new to this category it will be a pleasure to meet up with your group.
