    Re: Calling all UK members

    Well,

    Its getting close to the meet so I thought I'd start getting the locations for meeting up Organised.

    Plan

    Because of the vagaries of the UK weather I suggest we meet for coffee at 10:30 at

    The Castle Inn
    Chiddingstone
    Edenbridge, Kent
    TN8 7AH

    Then we head off (DRY WEATHER) to Bough Beech Reservoir for some wildlife and landscape photography - it's about 1 hour's mile walk according to the web or we can all pile into cars and drive there.

    Alternative is Hever Castle wheer there is a Patchwork & Quilting Exhibition, demonstrations, and stalls. - There is an entrance fee

    Individual Rates Castle & Gardens Gardens only
    Adult 10.50 8.40
    Senior Citizen 8.80 7.20
    Child (5-14) 5.70 5.40
    Family Ticket 26.70 22.20
    (2 adults/2 children or 1 adult/3 children), not applicable to groups.
    December - Castle only Adult 5.00 Child (5-14)

    Meet up for lunch at 13:00 - not booked anything yet so need rough numbers of who's coming.

    OK, I'm coming.
    And if Hever castle is National Trust, I'm a member.
    Don't know if that helps or not.

    Will you be on your own?

    My boss decided she doesn't want to spend time with me and my pervy camera (nick name for the 100-400mm given by my daughter)

    Forgot the link to Hever Castle

    Yes, and rushing home to get to the rest of the Silverstone 24 hours.
    SWMBO is going to stalk drivers (so what's new?) and forgot to tell me about the race.

    Sorry for the confusion folks. Yes meet at the Castle Inn and then we make the decision based on the weather.

    Just bumping this one up one last time, to say how much I'm looking forward to it, and in case there are any UK people in the SE who haven't seen it.

    Re: Calling all UK members

    I am so upset that I couldn't make it due to financial difficulties.
    I received a statement from my Bank this morning and found out that someone had a spending spree, of over 200, on a cloned version of my card in Nottingham!
    Thankfully the bank will give the money back to me but it's all too late. The meeting will be done and dusted :cryin:
    And I was so looking forward to shooting some nice portraits for you all.
    Maybe next time.

    I brought along stuff so you could show me how to use it
    Reflector, flash diffusers, I had a whole bagful of new toys to play with.
    Next time, I hope you can make it.
