We need one. NY and NE are to far north. What about getting a group set up for Philadelphia, DC, Baltimore, Richmond, Wilmington, De.?

Why not have "rotating" meeting points; South Jersey, Wilmington, & Baltimore would be reasonable locations for us to periodically get together.

Very good idea. But I was refering to the community area of the website and having a regional group here on the site.

The area from Mount Holly, New Jersey through Baltimore pretty much covers the Mid-Atlantic section of the country.

A Mid Atlantic group on the site would be wonderful. I'm in.

I would imagine it would be a tad damp... ;)

You Brits love the 'mid-atlantic' don't ya :D

That would be great. I also favor the idea of having rotating meeting points. Trenton, Philly, Wilmington, B-more are all in the area, and all have some great shooting areas and architecture.

Founders Meeting Place:

Given that the area from Trenton through Baltimore is proposed for the Mid-Atlantic regional group, and all these areas are readily accessible from interstates I-95 & I-295, I suggest that we have a founders' meeting off of I-295 in Woodbury, NJ. Woodbury is right off of I-295 and about half way between Trenton and Wilmington.

The location of the founders' meeting would be a dinner, either on Route 130 just north of Woodbury or in Woodbury. At such a meeting, people from all the areas from which our group would be composed would suggest appropriate dinners - or other locations - where we could periodically meet.

Lastly, I hope some thought will be given to include Lancaster and Harrisburg to our group as these areas through I-81 and Route 41 are readily accessible for meetings in the Wilmington and Baltimore areas.

I have created the regional group, can you guys supply a final description for it and I will update that for example "Philadelphia, DC, Baltimore, Richmond, Wilmington, De."

Thanks :)

Thank you, Sean. I would say southern New Jersey, Southeastern Pennsyvania, Maryland, Delaware and Eastern Virginia. (Trenton, NJ; Philadelphia, PA; Lancaster, PA; Baltimore, MD; Washington, D. C., Richmond, VA; Wilmington, DE; and the Delmarva Peninsula.) Just hit the highlights. Pretty much anything within 120 miles (190km) of Wilmington, DE. Thanks again, Sean.

Hello all.
A Metro DC area group would be great.
I'm Dick Harris, new to APUG, but in photography for many years.
And while I teach b&w & digital photography at the College of So MD, I was surprised to learn after all these years that I'm "Analog"!
I am shooting & preparing a black-and-white exhibit for the College and a Museum entitled "Black and White Renaissance,
My grear consists of two 4x5 Graphic & a Crown. Plus two Hasselblad outfits which have been shooting for many years. My latest toy is the Kiev 66 which I got on Ebay.
I'm in Hollywood MD, one hour SE of Wash DC & 1.5 hrs from Baltimore. Phila is about two hours.
So MD has a number of really great large format sites to photograph.
IDEA....If there is interest I'll host a one day workshop meeting at the Naval Air Musem here..the only one in the world.
There is a meeting room to show samples of APUG photos and after a.m. coffee and rolls we could visit a Civil War mansion..Sotterly. Then shoot fishing boats at Solomon's harbor, etc. Should make a fun weekend...maybe late August or Labor Day?
Everything in St Mary's County...MD's mother County is compact & photographable.
There is a charming new B&B called Victoria's Candle nearby.
Food for thought?
When? Ideas?

Hey Dick-

welcome to APUG, and Mid-Atlantic APUG at that. There's a loose and growing confederation of us in the DC metro area, not to mention other parts of Maryland, PA, VA and Delaware. We had a great outing to Baltimore back at the beginning of May, and we're looking at doing another outing in June. Your Southern Maryland jaunt sounds like a great idea. Want to organize it for late August or early September? It might be a bit rough doing it Labor Day weekend itself, since lots of people may already have travel plans or family obligations.

Dick, Welcome to APUG. The Southern Maryland outing does sound like a good idea. Labor Day weekend would not be an option for me, however.

Welcome among us Middy APUGers, Dick. I'm interested in an outing. All depends on my wife and my work. But set something in motion. PUGers always turn out.
