Just got the PDF invitation and pleased to say that "DSLRusers.com" is listed as one of the major sponsors!!! Second to the NAB, so nice exposure there.

I'll be sending them out to contributors tonight, by way of email.

thanks again in advance.

I will be going, and bringing kit to capture it. A few other friends are also, I'll ask the ladies what they are wearing. THey are calling it a cocktail party, and its a charity / auction type, so thinking fancy dress, cocktail/lounge suits. Little black dress is always a safe one... (not for the boys!!!)

I'm seriously considering going as I've never had any of my pics in a gallery before :wink: . It all depends if we can get a babysitter, and 6pm is a tricky time!! If I do go, the black dress will definitely be coming out of the wardrobe!

Hi,

The organisers have asked me if any of our members would like to give a 2-3 minute talk as part of the opening night.

Anyone attending interested?

I would love to, but have too many commitments at teh momoent, I can only confirm 70%, so i have declined, but would like to extend the invitiaotn to the forum.

The expectation is a short few words on our forum, what inspires us about photography, also with a view to introduce our images for people to buy.

Please PM me if you are interested.

thanks and regards,
Oz
