    Sounds like a good outing if the weather isn't nasty. I'd certainly like to come with my new Shen-Hao 4x5. (At last I now have a 4x5 I can schlepp without wishing I had a mule to help.)

    No permits needed.

    The regulations apply to special events (think Papal Mass) and professional film companies. No one's going to roust a dozen photographers shooting big weird cameras, unless we/they make a nuisance. Then someone will (rightly) send in the park rangers and tell them/us to move on.

    The birders routinely congregate in the Rambles with tripods, without permits. I've shot on tripod in Central Park for years, and no one has ever once questioned me.

    Birders also congregate around the model boat basin with sometimes enormous tripods and scopes to keep tabs on Pale Male and his nest. They are often willing to let one take a look. I think the scopes (There was one a few years ago that had to be at least a 12" reflector) and their supports are more interesting than the birds.

    The permits are free. I usually fax in the morning and I get a fax back in the afternoon.

    Well, if half as many people show up as said they would, we'll have a great crowd. For those of you not following the listserv (see my initial post) the planned date is Feb 3 with a likely backup date being Feb 10. I will be arranging for a group permit, regardless as to whether one is truly required or not. The initial meeting time will be 9:00am at the Bethesda Terrace with a second meeting time/place TBD. The plan is to do lunch at the boathouse ( http://www.thecentralparkboathouse.c...tions/home.htm ) if I can get us reservations and if they admit our sort of riffraff . We have a few interesting places to photograph in mind and we'll have a list put together before we begin.

    If you want to be on the mailing list and can't seem to get it to work (I'm new to it to) send me an email (alec(at)alec.com) and I'll add you directly.

    Cheers!

    An update: We're still on for this weekend. The deal is that we are going without a permit. It seems that the city and Central Park Conservancy does not issue photo permits for the weekend. I was told, "We don't permit any filming/photography on weekends (this is because the Park is much busier and there are always events happening throughout the Park)."

    "...however, I would suggest coming into the Park without an official permit. We don't require individuals (non-professionals) to apply for permits if they come in with a simple tripod set-up."

    I'm bringing a copy of that email with me.

    We'll be meeting at 9:00AM at the Bethesda Fountain, and we'll meet up again (for those traveling from outside the city) at 11:00AM at the Bow Bridge.

    Per the email from the CPC fellow, the rules for shooting in the park are simple: Be sure to keep all equipment on paved pathways and do not block any area of the
    Park.

    Weather forecast for Saturday (thus far, which means little) is Partly cloudy. Highs in the low 30s and lows in the low 20s. The day before it's supposed to be in the low 40s, so we'll see. If the weather is truly miserable we'll postpone until Feb 10. (I'll post updates here the night before) Look forward to seeing you all!

    Cheers!

    Alec, the city's response has always been my experience, in many years of shooting off a tripod in the Park.

    I had wanted to join you all. But family business requires me to be in Virginia this weekend. I'll come to the spring meeting. :-)

    Best,

    Sanders McNew

    I may as well say that I will not be able to make it either. The following week would be possible if it gets postponed.

    Hi Alec,
    Just wanted to thank you and all the great people that showed up today in Central Park. I was one of the pinhole camera guys -ARTHUR-shooting 4x5. Very nice group of people. I am horrible with names but if you know the e-mail of the man from Westfield NJ or if he reads this please shoot my an email>Also hello to my friend from Toronto.
    Thanks again for making this pinhole guy comfortable.
    Arthur, NYC
