    I ran into June on Saturday outside Gunns and we were talking about the next get-together, wondering when it might be. I think this time of year was suggested at our last meeting so maybe we should try to organise something soon.

    Any suggestions for a date in October? Maybe a venue where we can combine some shooting and print showing? Or just use Dublin Camera Club again (if allowed Vincent?) for a few hours of print showing?

    I'm sure there will be no problem in getting the use of DCC for a Saturday afternoon, I will check it out and report back. What does occur to me is how many people will have new work to show? I know that I've been less than active in the darkroom for the last few months. Perhaps a meeting near the end of October would suit most people. And thanks for raising the subject Peter, I feared that we might be on the decline judging from the lack of activity on the site for the last few months.

    Cheers
    Vincent

    End of October would suit me better as need a bit more time to get some printing done in the darkroom. Last Saturday in Oct. is 30th, 23rd is B/H W/e. DCC location was great last time out, but would be nice if we could go somewhere to get our kit out....Brian

    I have enjoyed the meet ups we have had so far and do feel that they have helped my printing allot. Lets keep it going... If people need another month I think we should wait till the end of October or even mid November

    We should try to organise a meet up for taking pictures in early December also if there is any interest? (maybe in another thread) I think its best to keep print showing and meeting to take pics separate as its allot to do both in the same day?

    November is actually better for me so any Saturday should be fine for a print showing meet up. I'm also keen on a get-together in December for some shooting.

    I also have few new prints made since the last meeting but setting a date for the next one will get me motivated :smile:

    We had a meet on Dec 5th last year in Carlingford and it was both pleasant to be on and we got some very decent pictures from it.

    I wouldn't mind if we had another meet up around Nov/Dec again.

    Hi all, are newcomers welcome at these events, if it's ok I'd be ok for a meetup later in the year, may only be able to produce average prints, no giggling allowed I assume when it comes to newcomers putting images out on the table I assume, (only Joking of course).

    So how about Saturday 13th November for a print showing get-together? Who's available for that date?

    I should also be free any other Saturday that month if a different date suited most people.

    I checked in the club last night and it looks okay for our Sat. meeting on the 13th Nov. We should aim for that date and I will confirm closer to our meet up.

    The meet-ups are a great idea, and would love to make this next one, my first one.

    Hopefully, I can begin to do some justice to Georges old enlarger :smile:

    Sounds good to me the 13th November, have enjoyed all the meet ups so looking forward to this one, I have a few prints ready but the extra few weeks might entice me to do a few more. Vincent was saying there has not been too much activity around here so maybe posting it on PI as well might spread the word, what do you think.

    "posting it on PI as well might spread the word, what do you think. "

    What occurs to me regarding this approach is that digital workers might assume that it is a print showing afternoon and not spot the fact that it is intended for analog workers only. But I would like to see other people's opinion.

    I think if it is posted in the PI film section and it is made clear that it is darkroom prints only we might hopefully attract some more analog workers. Worth a try, lets give it a go and see...

    So far we have confirmed
    Vincent
    Martin
    Peter
    Brian
    June
    Damien
    Eddie
    Paul ( not available )
    George (poss)

    If we go to PI as well how many more can we invite, we might need to limit the numbers initially to see what we can handle in the space and time we have. I can't see there would be any issue with Mark in using PI to make the announcement ( we can ask before we post) , as far as I remember Mark is a member here.
