    Glad to see six of us made it: Nick, Dale, Jimmy, Ron, Dorothy, Dolly and me. I used Mapquest to get there, but it didn't know a street was closed for construction. It was a great exhibit and presentation. Sorry if we missed people afterwards. We went over to see the exhibit at Cleveland Print Room, 2550 Superior Ave. Greg Martin is also showing there with several others. If you are interested in wet plate, he is going to do a demo there next Saturday at 1 PM.

    Would like to have made the discussion and seen everyone, but had prior plans with df cardwell, who was in town for the weekend, and then there was the Mini-Maker Faire at the Cleveland Public Library at the same time.

    The only official cost is chipping in for the porta-potty. There's usually camping space if the field isn't a swamp (or there are hotels nearby). Food is a "herd-the-cats" thing and we pick a local place that's fairly reasonable most of the time. Or pizza.
    It's a fairly flexible friendly group of people who enjoy taking pictures of whatever we can find (there are lots of choices in the Cuyahoga area) and also like sharing the results of our expeditions (bring prints to show). It's always a good time!

    Let it not be said that the host wants to hog all the jobs. I believe we have a new Public Relations Executive. Thank you madam PRE. You are good, except the part about camping and swamp. Bear in mind we have had campers at each event and madam aways stays in a motel or goes home. Some of the camping misadventures involved rain in the middle of the night when said camper had not used a drop cloth or other waterproofing. That can not be said to be the fault of the camp ground, but it did create some fun stories for the rest of us.

    Roland,

    Welcome. I have been out shooting all weekend with Peter and missed your post. All film and wet plate shooters are welcome. You are welcome to camp or commute. It is not far. We commute during the summer to a boat in Huron, OH. Quote from the boiler plate "If you have not been here before please PM me with name, address, phone, email and emergency contact in case you do something you shouldn’t have. I will return with directions and our phone number."

    I am really glad to see new faces show interest in joining us. Please know that the only way a group continues is if it grows with new people and new ideas. It also ain’t bad to have the old faithful come back time and time again. Thank you all for making this what it is.

    Peter and I have been shooting quite often down in the flats for about a year. Dale, Shawn and Peter have posted pictures of some of their favorite places. You can see we have some wonderful locations to shoot. Thanks to Peter’s generously scanning a few of my prints I can now start to add some of mine. I hope others will post images from earlier NE OH Gatherings. Bethe, how about some from the Ohio Farm Museum?

    One of the ships that comes to Cleveland quite often is the Alpena. She was built in 1943 and as I understand it, brings liquid cement from MI to a concrete plant here in the flats. Honestly I am not sure whether cement is a component of concrete or the other way around. With all the highway bridge building going on, the Flats must be a high volume cement customer.

    I discovered the Alpena on the IOS app described a few posts back. Saturday Peter saw my print from months ago of the Alpena unloading. He liked the picture. Sunday the Alpena was back in town so Peter could compose his own image. We have found that there are several 600+ foot Lake Freighters that regularly bring lime stone, taconite, cement and other bulk freight to Cleveland. Rarely a weekend goes by that some vessels are not visiting the flats. That ought to put a curse on the 17-19th.

    Come to the event and make you own pictures.

    Whatever it is the Alpena hauls, it hauls 30 million pounds of it. More than enough to give Archimedes pause and/or take care of J. Hoffa. Quite an impressive spot with easy access. Thanks for the tip John. Here's hoping my photos of the Alpena turn out half as nice as yours. Looking forward to seeing everyone in May.

    Thanks Peter for your help. The building on the right of the ship is Christie’s Cabaret. Their website is kind enough to show a Google map, their address and a whole lot more. The map also shows the inlet where the Alpena docks.
