HI All,

Over the last year or so I have noticed a steady increase the number of APUG members and sympathisers in my local area (Central/Western Canada). I believe we are now reaching the point were an APUG meeting/gathering/shoot/whathaveyou would be very well recieved.

So what are your suggestions? What kind of event would be a good way to start things off? A simple meeting? Organized shooting day(s)? workshops? Print exchange? All of the above?

I run a photography school and have all the facilities for darkroom and studio work from 35 to 8x10, from silver to platinum. A local lab is also interested in helping out (E6, colour prints etc.) and a local retailer would be tickled pink to participate.

So what would be your suggestions to get a sort of Central Prairies APUG gathering off the ground?
