Well, Kids... May is fast coming on and I am starting to clear the plate for the run up to this year's gathering in June. We now have over 60 people registered and although it seems unlikely everyone will make it, there will still be a pretty good group. And now that the weather is finally turning for the good here in good ole Michigan, I'm really starting to get excited about meeting up with all of you this summer for some shooting and an all around good time.

Just to recap a bit, Dan Henderson will be leading a day-trip into the UP and will be the guy to contact about that. And Jeff and Eva Bannow will be working out the details of a print exchange to include all those willing to throw a finished print into the pot. There will be more information on this coming as well.

As always there will be opportunities to share your work with others, so be sure to bring a portfolio. It doesn't have to be fancy and it doesn't have to be matted... just throw it in a box and bring it along. And if there is anyone out there willing to give a more formal presentation, please let me know soon so I can work you into the schedule. A laptop and a digital projector will be provided and all you'll need is a PDF, Powerpoint or Keynote presentation prepared. Maybe it is a retrospective of work, or just a new project you're working on, but you'll not find a better, more interested audience to share your work.

Before going, I'd like to solicit any ideas from all of you coming. As was earlier mentioned, this is going to be a more low-key, relaxing event, but that doesn't mean we can't have a few scheduled plans.

Also... Are you a photographic entrepreneur with a product to show? You are more than welcome. Just get ahold of me via my website (http://www.billschwab.com/core_contact.html) and we'll find a place for you.

That's all for now. I'll try to get a newsletter out to all registrants soon. Also, if you haven't registered and still plan to come, you can do so at the Website.

Thanks! Looking forward....

I am trying to finish a portfolio to bring over and share.

Looking forward to it Bill. I never made it north at all last year so I'm getting anxious to
get back up there.

I have to admit that in the past few years there have been some fine American Craft beers that rival some of my local favourites. (doesn't it just piss you off to see "favs" spelled that way... :D )

Oberon is one fine beverage.

See you in June!
Cheers,

I was thinking of bringing my smoker to do up a bunch of ribs and maybe some salmon. If anyone is in to that kind of thing... I am staying at the campground by the way. Just checking to see how many might be interested?

As Dolly (my wife) said to her shy daughter 20 years ago, "If you host the party you are always invited." The NE OH Gatherings, the TX Gathering, some Australian Gathering, an Irish Gathering, are all spin offs of Bill's event. Someone has to host the party. Thanks Bill. Wish I could still afford to come to yours.

I don't have enough extra vacation time this year to lead a week long thing but I have kicked the idea about some.

Maybe next year!
