Bruce - see PM.

Also, I hope you book your flights this week, you may miss the MaxiMeet otherwise! (you do realise it's this weekend? ;) )

Let's know what your flights are by PM and we'll sort out your best options :)

Hey Leon, I registered my interest in attendance in the first thread, and didn't in this one. I didn't receive PM re: detail; did I miss out entirely or is there space for one more?

If you're not a meat eater, then you may want to bring a snack so you don't feel left out :)

Otherwise, just bring along something to drink - we're all organised for the food side of things (don't expect anything flash though!).

Thanks to Leon, Matt, Gary and Peter for yesterday's meet. I enjoyed myself and learned a lot. It's probably going to cost me money, too, if I buy Lightroom and a lighting kit.

Oh, I nearly forgot Luke, our guide on the walk. Thanks.

Another great day. People came from far and wide (north and south etc). A few new faces, great company and I even learned a few things (if only I can put them to good use).

Thanks Leon and Amanda for hosting the day (and little sheepie for helping out).

Thanks to Matt for his help with Photoshop.

Thanks to all who attended to make it a great day.

:cheers:

A little late as I have been away from the internet for a few days.

Thank you all for a wonderful day. It is already proving expensive though. So far I have been inspired by Matt to study up on PS. One book (so far) later... Then there are those lights still tempting me.

A great day. Learned heaps & put names to faces.
