What I'm thinking is what about meeting each other for a chat , showing of work, members giving talks about their gear or approach to photography, personal projects that they are working on or are about to embark on.
Do you get my drift? The idea can be refined or expanded on or ground into the dirt.
Some pointers to be considered :
1. A one day meet.
2. A Saturday.
3. A central location not necessarily Dublin, but convenient to get to.
4 A fee to cover cost of a room.
What do you think?
