Second Shooting Meet - May 21 - Hamilton Harbour
Following Axle and CGW's lead, our second spring film meetup will be at Hamilton Harbour on Saturday, May 21st at 1pm.
There's parkland, sailboats, and docks. And a retired navy frigate we can board with our cameras.
(As the later afternoon light becomes sweeter, we can visit the Royal Botanical Gardens nearby, if anyone is interested and still has some colour film left.)
Co-ordinates are (43.277, -79.860). From Hamilton centre, take Bay N or James N to the water, following signs for "Parks Canada Discovery Centre" and "HCMS Haida". We can meet in front of the Williams Coffee Pub. Plenty of free parking right there.
I'll have free CafePress APUG mugs for those members that show up. The first six, anyway.
This is informal, open to anyone, so bring your friends, better halves, etc.
Look forward to seeing you there!

Oh, if you are coming from Mississauga or Toronto and need to pick up some film, paper, or chemistry, the best place to stop is Burlington Camera, here: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...,0.016694&z=16
The chems & paper, as well as new & used darkroom stuff is downstairs.
Sounds great!! Will do my best to attend! (May have to miss the first one; I'm in a production of My Fair Lady and may have a full day rehearsal that day).
Nikon 35mm, Mamiya 645 & RB67, Leica IIIb, other bits and pieces
David, thanks for organizing the event. Got this marked on the calendar.
It is in my calendar. Now to see if any family committments come up to conflict.
Oh, and as to Dave's plug for Burlington Camera, really, if you have never stopped in you are in a for a treat. When I run out of stuff photographic, they are my first go to place.
When I am passing by mid day on the way back from a meeting , or whatever, it is a frequent place to call on.
Frequently Joan or Brian have some expired paper or film stashed away bought as part of an estate purchase that they knows someone will be interested in.
It is always worth asking, if you don't see what you want.
my real name, imagine that.

I sadly won't be able to attend this meet as I'll be burning through film down in Watkin's Glen, NY. But yet, Burlington Camera is a great store, plus one of the few in the area that has Pentax 645 gear :P
Ah the joys of community theatre. Which company is staging this production, John?

I just finished installing a refurbished 96 channel dimmer rack into a high school theatre we work out of that we bought out of an idled City TV newsroom for a very good price It took me and others 6 thursdays in a row, and a full Saturday to bring back into service in a form to meet our needs. Others in the lighting crew installed more circuits to the lighting pipes to bring our rig up to something like more than 200 channels. Then another 4 nights to hang the lighting rig for the current production 'Urinetown'.
The company is Etobicoke Musical Productions, a west end musical company I have worked with for over 20 years.
If this is your first musical, and are still otherwise working some sort of a 9-5 job, you will soon learn why the week of rehersals before the show opens is called 'Hell Week' by many.
Hope you have a great time, both in rehearsals and with the performances.

Saturday May 21st, 1pm.
Just a bump for those at the west end of the lake...but everyone welcome...
