Silly flipping question that is dude........but only if I get to hang out of a car again taking awesome pics!!! [;)]

Could do with a way of taking decent low down rear pictures too - anyone fancy driving in reverse round the industrial estate!!! [:)][:)][:)]

Might as well make use of the decent weather (he says as its lashing down outside) & the longer nights!!! [y][y]

Weekend would be a great idea. Could make it into a proper meet then as
well - rolling shots and then go on somewhere to for food. Seeing as
some would be travelling a fair way and all that!

Only thing to watch is that there are a few shows dotted throughout
August, with Tatton on the 13th and Harweood/Wales on the 20th.

HOw about 26/27th Aug? Would be very nice to get a large meet on the go and looking at the interest in the other one i dont think itd be hard! This way i definatly would`nt mind travelling a bit. Plus if its later on in August, gives you little extra time to plan things and get more interest etc... [;)]

But its up to you guys as you own the show.

TBH Mark I think you may struggle for as many numbers if you do it of a
weekend, the large consesus at the meet was it was dead easy doing an
evening meet but weekends are a struggle for a large proportion of us
as with the weather and summer we are all choca-bloc with BBQ's days
out, family stuff and all that... I know for one I havent got a
spare weekend between now and september.

I think if people from far afield really want to do this there are two
avenues to follow ... maybe do a pre-cursor to the mega meet early tthe
day before?

or just get posting in the meets section and sort one for your own
area..... or shall we set up an inter region competition ?????

Count me in without a doubt, great meeting that and as Andy says, its much better with a purpose...

Can I suggest my belly as a tripod mount, un-believable amount of
cushioning/damping effect there! Dont know why i didnt think of it at
the time!

Inter region compy sounds a great idea [:D] I'm sure those southerners could give us a run for our money!

The reason I mentioned a weekend meet was due to the nights starting to draw in. The last photo shoot saw about two and half hours of usable light - anything after that just wasn't worth trying for.

But I guess a week day meet would suit others so I'll go with the flow!

Btw - Just realised we have the perfect pace car for taking photos with - JALOPY! Super soft suspension and a deep boot. Knew there was a reason why I bought that car [:D]
