    Hey, everybody who made it to Springfield, let's all hear it for Gene! It was great to see you all today and realize, after seeing those amazing prints, how far I have to go. That's all right - it's good to have goals, even if they're distant...
    I'm going to press this idea of groups of us using the Belmont Hill darkroom. We could get a whole series of workshops going here - for free, or damn near it. I'll speak to the photo teacher and schedule a date. Maybe our March vacation would be the best time - mid month or later. We could do a trial at any time to get everybody comfortable in the darkroom.

    I had a great time....it was nice to put faces together with APUG posts (for those of us with non-representative avatars), and there was some awesome work there.

    Thanks to everyone for their "heart, humor and humility"....

    Thanks to Gene from me, too, and apologies for being late!! I think the idea of getting some darkroom workshops going would be great! Really want to see some pt/pd demos with Paul and Peter!

    It was great to meet everyone. Looking forward to many future get togethers. And thank you Whitey for offering up Belmont Hill's darkroom facilities and gallery!

    I'm all for going into a darkroom...as It's been quite a while. Any darkroom workshops, especially alternative processes, is where I will be! Great time today

    Thanks Gene, I really enjoyed myself!! The prints I saw were excellent..so many talented people. I finally got to see Azo prints and they are wonderful.

    I look forward to another get together or a photo outing.. I hope Whitey's suggestion works out.. I would be interested in attending workshops too.

    Nice to meet you all,
    Take Care,
    John

    To everyone there... thank you. It was a real good day. It looks like we are on our way to becoming a very active regional chapter of APUG. It was nice to finally meet some of you.
    Pete - it appears that you will have plenty of opportunities to become active in the group!
    Again, Thanks to all who attended! :D

    Greetings All!

    I can't stop thinking about the wonderful time I/we had yesterday - making new friends, viewing wonderful photographs, and talking shop! It is very helpful to me to be with people/photographers who are so talented and willing to share their work and skills. I look forward to many more outings together and seeing our group grow!

    And a very special thank you to you Gene, for making this meeting possible!

    Blessing to All,
    on this beautiful winter day!

    Hey guys,
    Cut me some slack with the group shot. I gotta get it processed ( I don't do color at home) and then scan it. if Gene broke the camera, we'll all be lucky -and the only part the world will see of my ample bulk is the bit in my avatar.

    Soon, I promise.

    Ditto again
    I had to leave early Sunday for a class, so I haven't had a chance to post. I actually went a week with no web!! I'm amazed I survived!
    Anyway, I just want to learn from all of you. It was great to get together and I hope we can do it again soon. I'll be up for some classes, if I'm around when they happen. I also want to go out to Bash Bish Falls - though preferably when it isn't so snowy and cold.
