    It's a much appreciated offer, Simon. Thank you very much!

    We've had a couple of meet-up-and-shoot sessions in the UK so far which have gone very well. Now, a meet-up-and-print session... ...that could be very interesting!
    The destination is important, but so is the journey

    Simon.
    Prepare to get drowned in an avalanche of suggestions! That is a very generous offer. Many thanks.

    Manchester can be viewed as a gateway to several areas of photographic interest: Lakes, Dales, N. Wales...

    Cheers, Bob.

    If anyone does decide to fly in, PM me as I live less than a mile away from Heathrow airport.

    Cheers, Bob.

    Not if coming from the US. Most major American carriers fly primarily to Heathrow.

    I'm thinking about it myself, but the UK is a long way from Hawaii!! About 15 hours flying time total.

    You mean there are other airports in England - When did that happen???

    Good point: that was a brain-fade post - was up all night building servers ready for a weekend install... what fun... Plus, a look at the map suggests that anyone flying in to Manchester could hop off the plane and be at Mobberley in about 10 minutes...

    Cheers, Bob.

    Just as they did at the LaMotta/Robinson fights. Only this time someone called Ray who works for Ilford will be able to knock him down and stuff a summons in his inside pocket for a hefty damages lawsuit.

    to further the excitement, Les Mclean has offered to give a printing demonstration in the Ilford darkrooms if he can make the date Simon gives us. This just keeps getting better!

    Nope! Manchester is a major hub, I and my work colleagues use it to get to the US as it's a much more pleasant experience than going down to Heathrow. Easier to get to (for us!) with fewer traffic problems, and less people. The US airlines flying to Manchester include AA, Continental, Delta, US Airways and United. You've also got BA, Virgin and loads of others. According to my route planning software, it's only 8.5 miles from the airport to Mobberley, perfect for anyone coming from the US!
