Yes I am still taking photo courses at U Akron, this term shooting 8x10 and enlarging, last term 7x17 working on the canal project. Once a year I wheel in the baby jogger and do a demo with the 7x17 camera. The teachers use me to convince some of the students that carrying a 35mm and a small aluminum tripod may really not be all that bad.
I am glad the event still looks interesting. We have had lots of fun at earlier gatherings. It has not been so much about the items planned but the interaction of the people who come. That is what makes it good for me anyway. Every one gets a chance to do what they want, show their work and enjoy like minded people. Age difference really hasn't seemed a factor. Everyone makes an effort and it has been great. Hope we will see you.
