    Welcome. You may have read the following that I posted when Red Tractors said he would like to come. Send me information and I will return with information.

    "In the first post I wrote, ďIf you have not been here before please PM me with name, address, phone, email and emergency contact in case you do something you shouldnít have. I will return with directions and our phone number.Ē

    I purposely copied Bill Schwabís plan of stating various times during the event when, in theory, we would all come together. Those are Friday evening after 5 PM, 9 AM and 5 PM Saturday, and Sunday 10 AM brunch. Other times are catch as catch can.

    Please ask any questions you have. Let me know if you are camping. Come and enjoy.

    John & Dolly Powers"

    Tell the group your name and about your interests, especially relative to this event.

    Bethe said she didn’t want to crow, but you know that has never stopped me. I received an email from the U Akron Budget Administrator this AM informing me that I also had won a $100 juror's award in the School of Art show that just came down yesterday. The first time I’ve received a cash award. Lets see, that’s about 1/10% of overall costs. Oh well. It is a retirement lifelong wish fulfillment to study photography. I am glad I can share it with you all through these gatherings, that is the wish fulfillment, not the $100. I’m not buying the beer.

    Congratulations, John! Forget about how much the ROI is and just spend any winnings on more photo stuff. I've spent my winnings at least twice.

    For those close enough, Photorama USA photo swap meet, Sunday, March 17, 10AM-3 PM, Richfield Days Inn, 4742 Brecksville Rd., just south of OH Turnpike Entrance.

    When enough of us have shown up we have been known to have lunch at Musketeers Bar & Grille, 3027 Brecksville Rd, Richfield, OH. Tel: 330-659-4111. A possible way to consume your required corn beef St. Patty's Day intake.

    John,
    Is this Civil War Encampment anywhere near your place?
    http://www.ohiocivilwar150.org/2013/...ar-encampment/

    Also I see there is a big one at Hale Farm in August 9-11.

    I have been thinking of grabbing some large format portraits of some of these reenacters and Hale farm is the museum farm we have visited near your home I believe. Although not on the schedule for an official APUG visit, I wondered if anyone else had such visions.

    The link leads you to a promo for a re-enactment at the Perkins House at 550 Copley Rd., Akron, OH. Perkins was one of the founders of Akron. Go to Mapquest.com, enter that address for a map. Reduce the magnification enough to follow Copley Rd. west to I-77. Follow I-77 north 5-6 miles to Rt. 18. That is Montrose or about five miles south of my house. I would guess 10-12 miles overall.

    There is a big re-enactment at Hale Farm in August. I have read that it gets about 1000 re-enactors. Hale Farm is down in the valley near the covered bridge. Normally they do not allow tripods. They may drop that rule for this event, better check with Hale management. Their logic is that a pro uses a tripod. A pro makes pictures to make money. They want the money. Naturally I donít agree with this logic. I do find hand holding a 7x17 challenging.

    ďHale farm is the museum farm we have visited near your homeĒ. No, Hale Farm is down in the valley south of the covered bridge, west of the beaver pond. See their website for directions. http://www.wrhs.org/Properties/Direc...e_Farm_Village

    We as a group have visited the OH Farm Museum, 1.4 miles from my house, on Southern Rd. in Richfield. The owner Jim Fry encourages us to make pictures, especially if you give him a print. I worked there two years and gave him 73 prints. Peter worked there a lot with me and gave him scans of his 8x10 and 5x7s for his website.

    Let me know if you talk to Hale Farm about tripod permission in August.

    Reenactments are fantastic! I used to photograph at War of 1812 events, however now I actually participate in them as a soldier (British of course). I plan on bringing my 4x5 along and getting portraits of other reenactors this season.

    Note the dates of the two reenactments mentioned above. They are not the weekend of the gathering. You are certainly welcome back then. I just want to be sure you don't build expectations that can't come true.

    Yeah, I noticed the date, Aug 9-11 is actually a big War of 1812 reenactment at Old Fort Erie in Ontario, big siege, always a huge turn out.
