A few would be good enough for me - thanks guys. Looking forward to it even more then...
My pass is really only for the first four days. But after we've done what the boss wants to do later in the week it may be possible to catch up with you all in the evenings.
I may be able to convince the lovely Norma to meet up with you later Neil. Would your other half be around to may be catch up over a bite to eat as well?
A bit to far from the West Midlands however I am working in Cornwall a fair buit in the summer so dependant upon where and when I ight be able to meet up one evening

Keep in touch and I'm sure we can sort something out. I have Stoo's mobile number so will be contacting him on the 27th (late PM) to see what is going on.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
I won't be able to make that one as I will be out of the country. But I am sure that you'll all have a fab time. May the weather be with you!
Note sure that the US guys can logistically bring prints over without damaging them.... I'll see what I can do, but it might be a few wet plate alumitype images as they are bit more resistant to bending etc! I'll varnish a few before I pack them.
Before We come over, I will provide a local contact phone number where messages could be left. We won't have cell phones. I will also be bring a few FRS radio transmitters for folks to use when we are in the field. They are legal in the US, but not sure if they are in the UK. I have a garmin GPS with built in FRS so if any of you have one of those bring it. It might help coral the troops while we are out shooting.
Looking forward ot meeting you folks. Should be a blast. So far, the US contingent is myself, David 'Ike' Eisenlord, Thomas Bertilsson, and Daniel Lin. My sister will be hanging out with us for a little too with her digital... She is local to Marazion.

Might be a problem with using FRS in the UK Andrew. I think the frequencies are the same as used by our emergency services and can cause interference etc..
I'm not knowledgable in this stuff but doing some searches there were a few scare stories of people having them confiscated and being fined when trying to bring them into the country.
Someone else here may know more ??
The Wikipedia says in Europe...

Might be better to get PAYGO cellphone sim's if you have tri-band phones?
Yikes!! Might leave them at home!!
I fly regularly with 16"x12" prints in my luggage, non damaged so far I'll bring a few down with me next week.
