I have also offered help in organizing the 2010 meet up to Vaughn. I would hope he will take it. But it is his show now and we all should let him lead. So lead on my friend, lead on.
I agree with Vaughn to open it up to all forms of photography. I'm a firm believer that boiled down it's the person behind the camera that is doing the seeing and the technique is just a part of that process. But, this is a Analog web group and I followed its rules for the 2009 gathering.
I would suggest that all this discussion be moved to our Sub forum or pm boxes. Or better yet, let Vaughn do his thing. He's is capable.
