Thanks Mike, I always though that Ilford was at the centre of the universe, but it seems I was 8.5 miles out. :)

to further the excitement, Les Mclean has offered to give a printing demonstration in the Ilford darkrooms if he can make the date Simon gives us. This just keeps getting better!

Um, I believe, "Woooohoooo!" (in an utterly non-sarcastic way!) is the expression I'm looking for!

That really would be excellent.

Leon. You may have already seen the thread from Lee on Les' workshop in Texas from 27-29 May. If we can get Les it would be great but this rules out certain of Simon's dates. Given that this is a Bank Holiday week-end when others in the family have a call on APUGers' time, it may be that avoiding this weekend is no bad thing, especially if we can get Les.

I'm happy to hit any of those dates. I'll be even happier if Les can too.

any of these, so long as we get reasonable notice to book time off, earn brownie points etc.

Count me in for any of these dates. If anyone needs a lift from Lancashire/West Yorkshire just give me a shout.

Dear All,

Why don't we plump for Friday 2nd June : I know we will not have
Les, perhaps another time :

Leon: I guess you have kindly offered to look after the names : 30 is ideal, but I will
have to max at 35 : Minimum will be 20 ish. I know we joked about taking pictures but we do have restrictions, but I will keep you on the straight and narrow.

If you plan to be here by 10.30am we should finish by 5.30pm

Regards

Simon.

Simon,

I wish I could join you, but Hawaii is just a bit too far. But, I wanted to say how much I appreciate what you are doing for those that are able to go. Even though I shoot mostly color, I'm sure I could start working a bit of Ilford B&W into my kit.

Thanks,

The last thing you need is competition from APUG 125 and 400. :D Of course, I am not sure how much they will get once everyone gets their various ULF cameras set up.

Yes, it's those damn furtive 8x10 shooters you have to watch for! :D No, worries Simon - We will, of course, abide by any guidelines/restrictions you require.

Leon - Pop my name on the list please, mate!

We are about 1/2 way there to 30. Can everyone make this date?

Simon, if the number stays this low, would you still be happy to run the visit? There is still plenty of time for people to find this thread and sign up so I guess we'll have to see how it goes.

Showing interest: sure thing! The date is no problem either, but still... I'm not sure whether I'll make the trip. Well, I don't need to decide here and now, I suppose... Leave my name on there for now.

I am also interested, and the date is currently free, but I can't commit to definitely be there. Put me down as a possible.
