    John Fee and I are organizing an informal LF gathering/shoot. It will be open to LF users and anyone who is interested in LF. A chance to meet like-minded souls. I Will put the details up here soon. Most likely will occur one weekend in April. Any one out there interested in coming out?

    Never know if I'd be able to get over from the Island, but I'd interested for the sake of meeting other LFers, even if it is in (shudder) Vancouver.

    The LF gathering/shoot will happen on Saturday, April 21. We'll meet at White Spot Restaurant for breakfast, which is near the corner of Cambie Street and 12th Ave, Vancouver at 8am. If the weather is fine, we'll be going to either UBC or SFU for some architectural shots. If the weather is crummy, we'll head out to Stave Lake Power Plant museum, which is located just before Mission. I believe there is a $6 entrance fee, but it's worth it.
    Afterwards, we'll have dinner somewhere (if we are out in Mission area we could go to Rocko's Diner!), eat, chat about the day, show prints, etc.
    Please PM me if you are interested, or need more info, directions, etc... I'll be bringing my 8x10 and 14x17, some prints including carbon transfer.

    I'd join you as a medium format "lurker" except I'm already committed to a photo event for the whole day.

    Assuming, of course, you would let me :smile:.

    Hope everyone has a great day.

    I really wish I could come - while I currently live in the Prairies, I am coming home to Abbotsford over the Easter weekend, a timeslot which I realize works for nobody. If I could, I would be there.

    Matt, of course you're welcome. Kevin, maybe another time? By the way, I'm from Saskatoon, originally. Saskatchewan of one of my favourite places to lug my camera around, especially southern sask.

    Even if you are not a large format shooter, but curious about it, you are welcome to come along.
