    Huge LF's get together in Sydney

    Itís about time all Large Formatís in Sydney got together. So I have taken the liberty to organising the meeting. I feel it is best for starters to have a central location, so it is at Ballís Head Reserve, Waverton, next to the barbecue area, adjacent to the car park. As Carey Bird has pointed out I have no plans for inclement weather. If anyone has suggestions if it rains then please post it here.

    Iím thinking mid afternoon Ė say 3pm Ė on Saturday August 22. I will put on a bit of a sausage sandwich barbecue, and we will talk about Ďwhateverí over a few beers. I would like all to bring some gear to show off and talk about. If anyone anywhere in Australia Ė or the world - wishes to turn up then all the better. If anyone is just dead keen on film then turn up as well.

    If anyone wants to have a bit of a soapbox on the philosophy of film, while loaded with some beers, then go for it! So lets pass the word around Ė the more the merrier.

    Please post it here if your turning up?

    Hi Anthony,

    Thanks for organising this. At this stage I plan to be there - wife and weather permitting.

    Will bring a Technika and a slab.

    Cheers

    Re: Huge LF's get together in Sydney

    There are a few very significant players in our LF community who cannot make Saturday August 22. So I am considering changing the date to Saturday 12 September kicking off at 1.00pm. Same location: Balls Head Reserve, Waverton.

    Can each of you let me know if this suits you so I can get a good idea if this is a better date? In the end no one day is going to accommodate all, but I certainly want a date when almost all can turn up!

    This is a meeting for all Large formatters to get together, but my attitude is anyone who has a keen interest in film, anyone with interesting/unusual gear, MF’s, etc, are more than welcome.

    Re: Huge LF's get together in Sydney

    I’ve had a lot stronger response for Saturday 12 September for our Sydney LF’s meet than the 22nd of this month (particularly at APUG). So I am changing the date to the 12th and it won’t change.

    Would you all please pass the word around?

    Large Formatters Meet – and anyone else just keen on film
    Place: Balls Head Reserve (adjacent to the car park), Waverton
    Time: Saturday 12 September at 1.00pm
    Options: bring some gear to show off, a wee drink, and lunch (optional)

    Please remember this is a drive-only location, and as much as I love a beer, we (I) need to be careful. Also I have no idea what we are going to do if it rains – any ideas?

    Re: Huge LF's get together in Sydney

    Hey guys!

    Sorry if I hijack this thread for a bit. I have an assignment to shoot the Northern Territories for which I will be shooting everything on LF. I'll be traveling through Sydney on the evening of the 19th so unfortunately I will miss the meet up on the 12th. It would be great to meet up with some fellow LF users in town on the evening of the 19th, beers on me! If anyone is interested in meeting up and trading stories, please PM me!!!

    G'day,
    I'll try for the 12th. Work depending. Not sure if I'll bring the 8 x 10 beast. About a three hours drive.

    Since it has been a couple of weeks I need to remind all those Sydneysiders that our inaugural meet is on this Saturday. Please all come along and bring some gear.

    I am intending to fire up the barbecues - hope they work - and put on a gourmet sausage sizzle. I will bring an esky with ice - just to store the film stock of course!

    See you all there.
