Also, we need to take count of what size format our members shoot and whether they are b&w or color shooters. In this regard, it does not make sense for large format shooters to walk the streets of Baltimore with 35mm shooters.

For those who have not meet me, my screen name is "Flauvius" and my real name is Robert J. Triffin. I am in Drexel Hill, PA; a suburb of Philadelphia. Although I like to shoot 8x10 and 4x5, I occasionally shoot both b&w and color in 35mm.

Lastly, please do not forget that some of us will be away the first week in May at the APUG Toronto conference.


As has been said before, you can't please them all... not everyone will be able to make it to any given event. I think at this point it is more important to get an event on the calendar and get anyone who can show up to do so. I don't know about anyone else here, but I think at least for now it would be better not to formalize this too much - we don't need committees and officers and designated 'scouters'. Anyone who wants to chime in with a location suggestion can feel free to do so, and if they want to put in the effort to plan a meet, they should feel free to post it to the forum.
