Thanks for the wishes, I look forward to learning plenty from the workshops, and I hope to be able to pass any new wisdom when we have a chance to meet, again.

I have the "Recollections" by John Sexton, the images are great, and the book is produced to a superb standard, in itself quite a feat. I'd be happy to bring it along the next time, too.

Someone was asking about mounting board—if you don't mind getting it in a large sheet size of 32 x 40", you can get it from Glenwood Mouldings, in Newtownmountkennedy (is it really one word?) where I get it from, works out about €10 per such large sheet, which is good for a 1.5 mm rag board. They sell Colourmount, I like their Museum spec one, in colours 202 and 204. But you really need some sort of a cutting appliance to size it down.

The meetings start around 10 AM. If you arrive too early the club will be locked but I suggest that you might go to Insomia Coffee Shop just beside Gunn's Camera Shop and I will give you a shout there before we open.

I'm sorry I'll be missing it, but I see the Polish chapter will be taken care of. Have fun, everyone!

How's the printing going, anyone making any progress, I am on my second session, first was last week was poor only got one decent print and wasted a lot of paper, that was my first session since Christmas so was a little rusty. I had another go this evening and got two more prints and one I'm not sure about, did not waste half as much paper. So far three prints and hopefully another two over the Easter holidays.

Well, I am on a bit of a roll, preparing for my two workshops in April. I have 14 new prints, worked through 2.5 boxes of paper, but you'll have to wait till the autumn showing, as, sadly for me, I am going to have to miss this one, as I am going to be in US.

I've been experimenting mixing a few new developers, searching for a tone that I would like to get. I'd love to share with you what I have learned preparing Ansco 103 (not 130), ID-62, and DS-14.

Good luck, printing, everyone.

I have a couple ready and will probably get one more session in the darkroom before our meeting. So hopefully I'll have four or five with me.

I have a few printed, but need to exercise a bit of quality control on them before selecting some to bring. I might get one more run in the darkroom before the day.....

Looking forward to it though, and also the trip out later on ....

If any of you are still looking for a 4x5 enlarger, this one, LPL 7451 Diffusion Modular Enlarger (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LPL-7451-Diffusion-Modular-Enlarger-/151016961886?pt=UK_Photography_DarkroomSupplies_SM&hash=item23294ff75e), is a good one to look at. I've no connection to the seller, other than that I just bought an easel from him, to be delivered in April. If I had space for a second enlarger, and I was going to drive to the UK to collect it, I'd get it. Even better if it had the VCCE head for B&W but the colour one is good too.

I hope to attend the DCC meeting this week to confirm the date for our meeting. I've also been working in the darkroom so I expect to have 5 or 6 prints ready.

That's great, looking good so far, Paul plenty of time with the long weekend coming up to make a few prints. Rafal that looks a great enlarger, even at 600 it looks good value, surprised its still for sale. Would love an enlarger of that quality but dont have the room at the moment. Enjoy the trip.
