    Arrow Calling all Bay Area shooters: time for another get-together!

    Hi All:

    It's about that time again! We had such a great turnout last time and frankly the Printers Cafe was too small to comfortably accommodate us, so I am going to suggest a slightly different venue for this one -- the Main Street Cafe in Los Altos, CA. They have a larger back seating area that can comfortably accommodate a couple dozen of us, and they have a similar menu to Printers Cafe.

    When: Thursday May 20th, 3:30 ~ 5:30.

    Where: Main Street Cafe, 134 Main Street, Los Altos, CA 94022-2905, (650) 948-8040

    Be nice if you could respond here so we have an approximate count!
    ~~~

    => HEADS-UP NOTE: Also, want to give you a heads-up that Uwe Steinmueller and I have been talking about arranging a shooting get together for San Juan Bautista. This will likely be held on a Saturday morning in September -- a shoot early for a few hours then have a late breakfast/early lunch together afterward. Exact date an venue TBD, but here is a heads-up so stay tuned for more details!

    A l-e-e-e-t-t-l-e too far away for me, regrettably...

    How about the Bay-of-Bothnia area?

    I also posted this to the Luminous Landscape forum (as usual).

    I'll try to make it. It's a bit of an awkward time with my office hours, but should be doable.

    Re: Calling all Bay Area shooters: time for another get-together!

    Just wanted to thank everybody that showed up -- I think we had around a dozen total? Anyway, I had a great time, and it was super seeing everybody's great images! I also enjoyed seeing Uwe's battery-powered portable WiFI router and Andy's new iPhone/iPad photo app!!!

    Thanks again to all, and make sure to prepare your calendars for a Saturday morning September shoot/meet in San Juan Bautista!
