The Gathering is getting close. One more day.

Who will be arriving Friday and approximately what time? We will just go up the street for dinner at “Three Musketeers,” so you can catch up with us there if you come in after 6 PM. We hope to show prints after dinner. Who will be here?

Who will be coming in Saturday and about what time?

If it is not raining Saturday, let’s gather here at 9 AM. All who want to go to the farm equipment museum can go right over.

If it is raining Saturday let’s meet at the Richfield Family Restaurant for 9 AM breakfast, then go to Canton for the Civil War museum exhibit (see post 37). We can stop at the Akron U exhibit (post 58) on the way back.

Eva & I (plus Charlie as well I think) will be arriving together after 9pm, and will be camping. We will be leaving Sunday morning before breakfast.

Thanks Jeff,

Looking forward to seeing all three. Is Silke also coming or not?

Maybe, maybe not. She's afraid she might have to work this weekend unfortunately.

I'm planning on arriving Friday, hopefully not too late and also hoping to join you for dinner. Given the wind forecast, I figure I ought to get between 80 - 100 miles per gallon on the way over from Indiana! ;)

I understand that if you hold the doors open it works like a spinnaker.

Good flight!

So it is official. I am coming down tomorrow evening with Jeff & Eva and yet to be determined Silke. I will be tent camping (against my better judgment :-)

I am bringing my stuff to shoot wet plate, hopefully weather will cooperate. But I will not hold you, John responsible if it does not. It would be great if you had that kind of pull however. I am just happy to be able to make this one.

Thanks for hosting John!

Charlie,

You might want to make a back up reservation at a motel. Current weather forecast for Friday night is 70% chance of rain, temperature 44 degrees. As to my responsibilities I will be in the nice warm bed upstairs with Dolly, zero chance of rain, temperature 70 degrees.

I have relinquished all my responsibilities to Cindy, the younger faster Labrador. She is also in charge of the complaint department. On a good note, she, cold wet dog that she is, will be happy to snuggle in your sleeping bag with you.

Glad you are coming.

John

I will certainly give the backup reservation a strong consideration. I have done my share of camping and backpack camping etc and frankly don't mind leaving them behind... Especially in questionable weather conditions.

Although the dog as a warming blanket sounds good too.

John -

I'll meet you at the restaurant on Friday at 6:00pm, and will have prints to share afterward.

On Saturday, I'll be there in the morning at 9:00am, whether meeting at your place or at the restaurant.

thanks, Jeff

Got my lighting gear packed and our other Lee does too. Some logistics on when where and how to finalize but we should be able to do some real fine studio lighting demos. Free sun tans to all who will brave the stool infront of the camera. We have enough watt seconds to tan you and burn back your hair-line by a few inches. All are welcome to connect to the pc cord, pose a friend and shoot a few holders.
Anyone equiped to do some pinhole portraits with the flash eq ? Wet plate with flash heads? Multiple exposures on one frame. Stretch the brain, think creative.

She sounds like a fun addition to the group. I may have some friends to introduce her too.

If Dorothy’s doll is taken and anyone feels left out we have a CPR doll you can practice on in the lights or in a closet, if you can find a closet in this house with that much room.

Cindy and Savannah are available for couples portraits.
