Photography Question

Regional clubs?


Does anyone know if there are ever "regional" get togethers?
For instance, a casual meeting in a certain city or park so we could have company, learn from others and have fun shooting for a day. Nothing official, just a chance to meet others who like to do the same thing....
What do you think?

Mellanie    Hey Sharon! First of all, welcome to BP!

I know that there have been several 'regional' get-togethers. I live in OK and I met up with several other BPers (from TX & OK) last April. I think they have another get-together scheduled for Nov. Several other BPers had a Maine get-together in June and I know there have been others out there. I think a lot of it is just finding those who might be within a days driving distance from the gathering....Those who put on the OK and Maine get-togethers posted in info on their daily contest entry.

Good luck!
Mel

  Well I'm in North Carolina and a couple of us are planning for having Debby Tabb and Liza Franco (some locals as we'll call them!) to do a weekend "siminar" type thing. We can keep you updated on when it is if you're interested in coming up.

  I've found one person near me, and one person on the south side of Chicago, but that is it. I wish I knew of more!

Angela K. Harter   i guess now we just have to appoint someoneto be the "director of events" and plan something! a day (or weekend:)) of sharing and learning from each other~that would just be way to cool and so much fun!

  Carolyn, Char lives only about 20 minutes from me. I had inquired about a camera club for my area and she responded. Bad thing is that they meet on a night that I have to be around for my daughter's cheerleading practice. Does Bonnie live near Char?
