    Charleston, SC. This is not far from Savannah, GA. Students from Savannah College of Art and Design would be able to get there much easier.

    Be sure to mention the interesting debate about film going on on APUG while you're over there.

    :D

    For me - Santa Fe, it's just that little bit further away from New Zealand.

    I'm completely serious about an apug conference. I wouldn't want to organize it by myself, but would help with it. Maybe as an ongoing thing we could hold it here one year, then in Europe the next, or somthing like that. In 9 months from now the way we are growing, we coud have 4000 members.

    I think an APUG forum would be great, but location will be an issue.

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I am willing to help anyway that I can.

    It's been discussed a little before now and there was a favourable ripple amongst APUG. I personally would support it too. A conference would be a great way to 'consolidate' the membership a bit, enhance the loyalty and not to mention be a heck of a lot of fun.

    Charleston, SC would be very convenient for those on East Coast. It & surrounding area has much to offer for photo excursions. View Camera & APUG at same time/location might be a worthwhile combo.

    It would seem to me that APUG and View Camera have a lot in common. VC does a lot to promote traditional photography. At some point a joint effort might make sense.

    Steve,

    I think the Valley Forge location would be great!
    But then I live in New Jersey, so I'd love it.

    VF is close to Philadelphia which has an international airport and an Amtrack station on the Northeast corridor. It is close enough to the NYC market that folks from that area could easily come down.

    Really anywhere on the east coast would be nice.
    I know I don't ever want to fly again.
