    7th Annual Large and Ultra Large Format Meet and Greet

    I've been asked to start a new thread with details about this event, so here you go. Tri Tran, Hugo Zhang and myself Jim Fitzgerald started this years ago with some success. This year it will be different than past years as it is more geared toward photographing. Models will be provided and I believe Tri will bring a dark tent for collodion work. Bring your gear to photograph.

    We are not doing formal tables to show artwork and sell gear. As I said it is about photographing models, or in and around the park. If you want to sell something it is up to you but no tables are provided. Maybe the park has some picnic tables I'm not sure. I'll find out. This get together is more about hanging out and talking about our love of LF and ULF photography and catching up with one another. I will be coming down from Vancouver Washington for the event.

    The meet and greet will be held at:

    Thomas Riley Park. 30952 Oso Parkway Coto De Caza CA. 92679

    Date: April 7, 2019 Sunday

    Time: 9AM-6PM

    What to bring: Bring your cameras, film, plates etc. Bring some food! We are not providing food for everyone. Please bring what you wish to drink (no Alcohol allowed) and what you wish to eat. It would be nice if everyone brought something to share. Nothing elaborate, snacks etc. It is all about sharing our passion for the medium and having a good time.

    I will attach a link with the map of the location. Questions can be directed to me or Tri and one of us will get back to you. Either on this post or via pm whichever works. There should not be many questions but who knows?

    Hope to see everyone soon!!

    JIm,
    It is great to see that you are once again involved. I regret that as much as I have been wanting the group to resume, I will not be able to attend. Now that I am 90 my family does not like me to drive as far as Orange County, and Ken, with whom I have traveled for many years will be 3 treatments from the end of 45 days of radiation treatment for his cancer, and expects to be unable to drive any distance. SHould any of these change, you can bet we will be there. Good luck with the renewed event.

    Re: 7th Annual Large and Ultra Large Format Meet and Greet

    This is the Park address. It is located at the end of Oso Parkway, then left next to two entrances to the Coto de Caza community. I spoke with the ranger today and there is no problem. The picnic area if first come first served. So, whomever arrives at the park first, needs to make sure put a sign that says RESERVED for LFF. I will bring one in case I am the first one. I have to check with Mr. Tran and Mr. Hugo about the meeting time. There are portable toilets and some water fountains. However, it is better to bring your own water and snacks. There is nothing close by.
    I will post pictures later. Here is the link to the Park's website.

    I wish I was near I’d make and bring some dry plates to try out.
    Newly made large format dry plates available! Look:

    I believe they are in the San Diego area? Not sure. Tri told me 9AM so that is what I posted. If someone close wants to get there earlier go ahead as that would be nice.

    I can be there at 8 am with a sign to reserve the spot. It is Sunday, so a very popular day for families. Hopefully they will go after church. I will skip church.
