    Congratulations but ... it's better to wait with the announcement until you can actually reveal some details!

    LOL! In one venue, we may have to pass them out to ensure their *attention* Just keep them away from Carnie, he tells me way too much now. I can't imagine ... shudder ....

    Looks great Art. It will be excellent at the VPC with the APUG show still up, and it will be good to see Bob, and hear about everything he does!! :smile:

    You're really trying to make me wish I'd stayed up there! (it's sorta working)
    I'd love to make it up for one of these!

    Bethe,

    We'd love to have you back here. You know it, we know it. Just drag the SO kicking and screaming. Use duct tape if you have to.

    Regards, Art.

    Hi Folks,

    OK, Bob's seminar tour will begin February 5 at the VPC in Sprinfield, MA. The it's the SECCC on February 6 in Waterford, CT and finally the PAC on February 7 in New Haven, CT.

    That said, if there are folks who can help Bob set up about a few hours before the start of the seminar at any one of the venues, please PM me your e-mail addy and phone numbers and I will pass it along to the respective people. Not looking for a lot of folks, just 1-2 for Bob to kick around and abuse. It's his form of BDSM love.

    For the rest of you NEAPUGers, just show up!

    Regards, Art.

    My apologies Bill. Hope you enjoy the seminar. Bob's a hoot and will entertain too as he informs.

    Thank you Bob, and Art, Gene and Christine of the VPC for hosting. Bob gave an excellent presentation, and it was great to see the superb printing he does, and great to see side by side comparisons with the same photographs of different processes.

    It was well worth the drive for me.

    One suggestion... make sure you've got the right start times for tonight and tomorrow. Bob's website said it started at 6pm, and it really started at 7pm. I arrived around a quarter to 6, and the place was closed. I thought I had driven an hour and a half on the wrong night! :surprised:

    Found everyone in the bar downstairs!!

    It was a very good evening indeed. Bob is a great guy. And the photos he showed were beautiful. For those who didn't make it... the last series of photos he showed would have been worth the price of travel!!! :D
    I will post some digi-snaps of the evening soon. Right now I am just trying to relax as it was a very long day yesterday and I am still spent from it.
    Thank you Bob, it was great to meet you.

    I concur. It was inspirational to see all those beautiful big prints. Bob is a very generous and open presenter, and a wicked good printer. Now, where did I put those 16x20 trays?

    Hi Folks,

    Just got back yesterday evening. Sorry for being an absentee organizer. Definitely not the best way to organize an event - my apologies. After all the hype I was hoping to be at all three events. I hear from several folks this event went very well. Here's some quotes from a few attendees:
    Shows that Bob is an engaging speaker and more importantly, he knows what he's talking about.

    Hmmm ... now to set up something for the West Coast ...

    Regards, Art.
