My girlfriend wants to see me in a speedo. I wouldn't be comfortable wearing it in public, unless it was under my kilt.

Terrific work everyone. Let's keep our hope alive. Hopefully Nicholai's promise this time is for real.

Maybe we scared Nicholai. Probably. You're scaring me.

Still kicking here. I've not been on in some time with life, new job title, etc... I was hoping I missed a PM asking about being the next in line to get a camera. No such luck. I'll figure out where I left off and catch up on reading the thread next week when I have more time.
I hope all are well and survived the holidays. More are always on the horizon.

Well, it worked!

Mr Postman delivered the Olympus to me this morning.

Can someone point me to the current list of people? I'm trying to work out how many shots should I take. It's on No. 12 at the moment on a 36 film so that would be 24 divided by the number of people left.

I also need to know who to send it to next.

OK, just found this from April.


To refresh the memory after all this time:

Camera #2 - Olympus Stylus Epic

Sile Ireland ← Camera is (finally) here!
Raphael Plougastel, France
rst Oestringen, Germany
kraker Breda, The Netherlands
nicholai Denmark
Steve Smith Isle of Wight, UK
M.A. Longmore Hartsdale, NY
jnanian Warwick, RI
Rick A Emporium, PA
Jim17x Worth, IL
zsas Crystal Lake, IL
ambaker Poplar Bluff, MO
toro_mike Englewood, CO
cdholden, Nashville, TN

We'll post an update on Camera #1 - The Leica later tonight.

Assuming it's still correct, that's two or three shots left for each of us. I will do two to leave some spare.

Yes, indeed! Nicholai finally came through, thanks largely to John Nanian - that great Rhode Islander among us. John graciously stepped in and reached out to Nicholai and made a heartfelt appeal that worked wonders.

We have a very slight change in the list for the Olympus. For now, it is the following:

Camera #2 - Olympus Stylus Epic

Sile Ireland
Raphael Plougastel, France
rst Oestringen, Germany
kraker Breda, The Netherlands
nicholai Denmark
Steve Smith Isle of Wight, UK ← Camera now here.
M.A. Longmore Hartsdale, NY
Rick A Emporium, PA
Jim17x Worth, IL
zsas Crystal Lake, IL
ambaker Poplar Bluff, MO
toro_mike Englewood, CO
cdholden, Nashville, TN

I am certain that most if not all are still participating, including the next on the list - Ron (M.A. Longmore). I'll reach out to Jim17x and keep everyone posted.

BTW - John Nanian, who graciously brokered the deal with Nicholai to get the camera moving - has bowed out of the rest of this round. Makes me a little sad not to have one of his haunting lifescapes included, but we'll get him for the next round for sure.

Regards,

Shawn

Just wanted to use this post as a reminder to all to PLEASE do not mail out the camera to the next person on the list until we have confirmed that they are still participating and we have the correct address. Thanks!
