2007 Northern Michigan Gathering - Official Announcement
Northern Michigan Photographer's Gathering
Cross Village, Michigan
June 19 - 25, 2007
Skill Level: All
Sorry to take so long with this announcement! The 2007 Northern Michigan Gathering of Photographers is set and this will be the only announcement made in the APUG site, so pass the word on to anyone you know is interested that may miss this posting. An announcement will also be going out to my subscription list.
Please direct all future questions and comments via my workshops website. Notice that we have extended this year's gathering due to popular request. No one wanted to leave last year!
Although the event is free of charge, you must still REGISTER to attend. Upon registration you will be sent directions and further information about attending the event. This year we have a block of rooms reserved at the nearby Birchwood Inn, a very nice place to lay your head after a long day of socializing and shooting. A minimum of 10 rooms must be booked to get the discount rate. If you wish to choose this option and reserve a room, simply make this choice on your registration form. Once we have a count that matches or exceeds 10, we will make the group booking.
Just a quick note to say that the block of rooms is set-up at the Birchwood Inn and you can call in your reservations at any time. Ask for the North Light Press room rate. A lot have signed-up, so I urge you to make your reservation soon. You do not have to reserve the full date range of June 19 - 24 to get the discount rate. I know most seem to be arriving on Thursday. Newsletter soon....
Well, this is a dilemma for me ... this meeting coincides with an event associated with one of my many other hobbies - the annual Origami USA Convention in NYC. I've been asked to teach one of my favourite models that was created by origami legend Samuel Randlett. I first learned origami from his two books. As well Kiyo Yoshizawa will be presenting a collection of work made by her late husbad Akira, who is the founder of modern origami art. Hmmm .... what to do, what to do?
Beginning to gather things for the venture north. Black flies have just come out south of Cleveland, OH. Mosquitoes can’t be far behind. What was the most successful black fly and mosquito repellant last year? My pharmacist says look for the highest “deet” content in the repellant. What was your experience?
