    Go for it, Mark. It doesn't have to be a week long thing. In fact, this year the Photostock event is shorter than before at only 3 days. Even a one-day shooting gathering gets people together. Having now been to several of these including John's excellent gatherings in Ohio, I can say without a doubt that they are good for the photographic soul.

    Well in that case Bill, please come back for some soul food. We hope to have another three day gathering late July or early Aug. Sorry to miss your event. The service tech said we are buying a new/replacement whole house air conditioner instead. Not my first choice, but Dolly said it is.

    Air conditioning would be tops on my list too, John. We had to do it last year... ugh.

    I'll keep an eye out for the next gather, but will be doing a workshop in NJ as well as the Maker Faire here in Detroit in those last weekends of the month. And in August we have another group heading up to Iceland. If I can squeak it in, I will for sure. Thanks, John!

    Heidi and I are really looking forward to this year's event. Thanks for resurrecting it, Bill! I think it'll be fantastic to run around finding new tripod holes, revisit some old ones, see what goodness Emmet County brings this time around, and most of all spend some time with fellow photographers. I really enjoyed the 2008 event.

    I plan on being there around midday, early afternoon on Wednesday June 23rd.... Bill, do you know if the Birchwood has an external hose that we could use for washing collodion plates? Otherwise, I'll be bringing a 20x24 tray for my shower stall!

    Hey Andy,

    Glad you're bringing your gear. Yes, there is a hose bib we can use and I have about 100 feet of hose as well. We'll get an area set-up as I plan on doing portraits of people throughout if I can. I'm going to have my tent "studio" as well. Great for diffusing light.

    This is going to be fun!!

    If any of you have any films, film clips... bring them along. I've added a new projection screen to the kit and we'll be screening a couple films on the projector in the basement. There is always room for more.

    PS... I'll still be leading a workshop up at my place on Wednesday and won't be at the hotel until later in the day.

    Brilliant work on getting the Birchwood 'Wet Plate' ready Bill. Sounds like it will be GREAT fun indeed, and I cannot wait. I'll likely be tooling around somewhere near the shore (Sturgeon Bay) around midday on Wednesday. I know this is your last day of the workshop so will likely see you later in the day.

    We should be arriving on the 22nd as well, and will likely do similarly to Andrew and find our way to the beach for some quiet photography and enjoyment.

    I just hope Bill ordered some better weather than what we've been having here lately.
