    Tim,

    These APUGer organized events are real simple. How good are you at herding cats with rabid dogs barking in the background? Real simple. All kidding aside - but just barely.

    How to organize a "Shoot One Camera Trip" for dummies ... (Sorry Tim, couldn't resist)
    1. Buy a disposable camera - B&W, colour, whatever you want, it's your baby
    2. Start a new thread
    3. Call in "Shoot One Camera Trip #5"
    4. Ask people to sign up in the thread.
    5. Ask them to send via Private Message (PM) their real name and mailing address
    6. Set a deadline of about 30-45 days after for people to sign up and PM you, or the number of frames in the camera (don't forget to include yourself in the count!), whichever comes first
    7. Ask people to indicate whether they are willing to send the camera overseas - this costs more and they need to know how to fill in the customs forms properly
    8. When you get all the names and addresses, create a route that minimzes the number of times the camera has to cross a border - this includes US state borders and Canadian provinces too!
    9. Publish the route - make sure you state their handle in the published route
    10. Print out everyone's names and addresses in the order of the route and include that with the camera.
    11. Package the camera and the route and send it off
    12. Monitor and regularly communicate the progress of the trip in the thread - takes about a year if everything goes smoothly, longer if not
    13. You'll have to make adjustments as you see fit during the camera's trip, if necessary
    14. That's pretty much it
    When you get the camera for the current trip #4, take a look at the instructions I included with the camera. That should help - I think.

    Since you volunteered to organize, you also volunteered to be the last person to get the camera at the end of the trip (kind of ensures you stick around, unlike previous organizers). This means you'll have to process the film, post the images in the APUG gallery, and make any arrangements with anyone that wants reprints or their negative frame.

    Hmmm ... now that I think about it, this is one way to organize a trip. Another way is to do this is "on the fly" that I just thought of, but I personally wouldn't recommend anyone try that, 'less they're masochists.

    Regards, Art.

    Art,

    You saw the changes I plan to your instructions. A SureShot costs about 10 bucks these days on EBay and I have an extra one I have tested and know works, no one has done a B&W We all shoot the same camera", I am very proficient at developing B&W film, I think sending everyone their negative at the end is a nice touch.

    See any holes in my plan? The rest of yours I am going to print out and use as the Bible for dummys like me.

    P.S. I have 4 cats, two dogs, two parrots, and a couple dozen fish. We can handle the menagerie.
    Where ever you are, there you be.

    You bring tears to my eyes ... the grasshopper is becoming the master. Your mojo is strong and I see great success in the future.

    Lisa, Be aware this is not a Round 5 of "Let's all shoot the same camera", it's round 1 (A, B, or C???). They had some... problems.

    Round five sign ups might start next week. As Art has pointed out, it takes a short sustained burst of energy, then a long period of herding cats. I might have a break next week to get this organized.
