    Hi everyone,

    I thought it was about time to go through the Hotel Booking thread and see who was actually planning to come to Cornwall on the 24/26/27 of April, 2009. So here is the list as I see it. If I have missed anyone out (booked into the Queens or not) please let me know and I’ll add you to the list. To date the list stands at:

    Barry Wilkinson - staying at the Queens
    Brian Jeffery - staying at the Queens
    Stoo Batchelor - staying at the Queens
    Delphine - staying at the Queens
    Tony + Jean - staying at the Queens
    (Brook Hill)
    Mark Burley + Norma - staying at the Queens
    Richard Kent - staying in St Ives but will be joining in.
    Neil Souch + Jean - local will be joining in on all days
    Bill Spears - local will be joining in

    I have already suggested some locations to visit and others have also mentioned various places we can all go to. I shall be staying at home (which is only a few miles away) but I will join in all on all the days and assist as may be needed but please remember this is your weekend and everyone is free to do their own thing and to join in as much or as little as they wish :smile:

    Getting back to the locations. I think it is best to keep this open-ended until the time as a lot of this has to be decided with the weather. I have the tide times here and will make everyone aware of them nearer the time. The best time to go to beaches in my opinion (and the safest) is when the tide is going out so that you have clean sand and wet rocks. In such conditions a lot of good photography can be done as you simply follow the tide out and start thinking about packing in when it turns. I will make you aware of any dangerous areas on beaches that I take you to.

    Also don’t forget to bring some work along for an informal mutual sharing of images one evening (usually done in the bar!). Jean and myself, although not staying at the Queens, will be joining you for dinner so we should be with the group for most of the time. Also if anyone is coming down early – or staying on a few days and would like a bit of company let me know and I would be happy to meet up somewhere.

    All the best and we look forward to seeing you in West Cornwall! :smile:

    Neil.

    Should be joining up with you all with my camera caddie nephew :D

    Planning to be in Cornwall shooting that week anyway possible from the Tuesday or Wednesday, 21st/22nd April, depending on the weather forecasts. May be camping so would yomp into Penzance to meet up, I assume the bar in the Queens is open to the Public ? I guess I've past the place many times so I'll have no problem finding it.

    Just another quick update for you on who's coming. I have just added Roger Bulcock to the list as apparently I missed Roger off the list along the way some how!
    Sorry, Roger - all sorted now.

    As you can see we have a very good group developing here and it is looking to be great weekend - still time for anyone out there who maybe thinking that they may like to come along to join in though and I can assure you you will be made most welcome if you do. So don't put if off any longer!

    Also if you are members of the National Trust do remember to bring your membership card with you as we shall be using the NT car park at Gwithian and it will save a bob or two :smile:

    Cheers,
    Neil.

    Hello Neil,

    I live in Ludgvan, just outside Pz and would like to drop in on you at the Queens if possible. I might have to work that week but if not I hope to meet you all there, if that's O.K.

    Regards Daniel
