    I think the itinerary will be largely weather dependant and thus probably best sorted out at the time. Probably best if anyone who has a suggestion brings a few notes (directions to the locale, what's there, best time to shoot, etc.) and we see what appeals to who. We can either go with a majority vote or split into smaller groups and meet up / swap around periodically throughout the weekend.

    What do you think?

    Someone also mentioned that people attending might want to bring two or three prints along to pass around during the evening sessions.

    I had originally anticipated participating in this get together but I will have to bail due to family and work pressures. Seems I will be in India either that week or the one before.
    Hope everyone enjoys it

    For the dashboard effigy, I suggest the obvious: Two-Jags Prescott - who else... You mean you do not have a local milliner's shop to buy hat pins? You will have to try your nearest haberdashery instead... Perhaps just hang it by the neck from the rear-view mirror and tug on it's legs occasionally...

    Donner Kebabs! That half term holiday probably puts the kibosh on my getting an extra day out of any cottage or flat owner. What idjit wants to drag their kids to the Lakes in February - and how many 13 year olds will thank them for doing so?... Ha!

    Cheers, Bob.

    Less of the toycamera bashing ... some of my best friends are Holgas.

    over dinner is fine by me, as long as castlerigg's on the agenda, I'm happy to go with the flow.

    I'm going to try to pop to SunkenKirk Circle, nr Swinside at some point too, although it is a fair way south of Keswick so will probably go there on my way up

    I'd suggest a gentle walk up Langstrath which is in Borrowdale and not far from Keswick, on a decent day there are some good photo locations. Good idea to bring along 2 or 3 prints. Can someone tell me where the meeting place is?

    That's a shame. Enjoy the alternative, whatever it proves to be.

    I had previously nominated the Horse & Farrier Les.
    Your suggestion for a stroll sounds good, I like the gentle bit. Is Castlerigg better at dawn or dusk? I'm quite happy to point my camera at anything, providing it dosn't move too quickly.

    Yes, must sort out some prints to show, I must have at least one that I'm not ashamed of!

    I must give the H&F a ring to find out if we have to book for dinner, will let you know. After that it could be the chippy in Keswick.
    Regards Dave.

    I have just been informed by post that the Keswick site...

    "due to recent flooding.... the site has been deemed uncampable"

    I now have to consider my options. I may not be joining you this year.
