View Full Version : AP SA GREAT National Meet 2nd/3rd June 2012

Hi Fellow SA AusPhotography Members!

The national meet is scheduled for the 2nd and/or 3rd of June 2012.
Obviously weather will play a part on this weekend.

I'm open to suggestions as to what we should do and where.

Given an indoor (or covered) meet might be safer weather-wise we could do one of the following: (or another idea?)

National Motor Museum at Birdwood
A studio portrait day ( small fee would be involved, we could hire a venue and some lighting gear )
Adelaide Zoo

Also: We could have a pub dinner as well!

Please feel free to make some suggestions!

Hi Kim
I am ok for that weekend at the moment. would love to do Monarto Zoo again but weather could be a problem like last time. Pub dinner sounds good to me.

oh no! I would love to come....but that is my Sons birthday weekend! :(
maybe next time???

I will mark the weekend in my calendar. Birdwood would be good, Alternatively if weather is friendly some place like Laratinga ? Another suggestion is Railway museum at Port Adelaide, with all of the rest of the port area nearby.:efelant:

Like the sound of Adelaide Zoo as we would have greater access to other sites & Pubs etc.

Look forward to it.

this is an idea as if the weather is fine can also walk around port Adelaide some nice old buildings there

03-05-2012, 12:05am
will try and keep these weekends free and in the meantime put my thinking cap on

I've just moved down to Adelaide so it's probably a goer for me :th3:

10-05-2012, 2:44pm
Ohh, I would love to come, however that happens to be the one weekend that I have something on both days. :(

Hope you all have a great time and I look forward to seeing the photos.

I have some basic studio gear . some backdrops a pair off soft box lights if its wet could be an alternative , you would need to find a space plus model .

20-05-2012, 10:31pm
let me know where of course, I hope to be there. Got a lot on at the moment, hope things settle by then :).


24-05-2012, 1:52pm
I am interested in.
But I need confirm the time I got a paid portrait shoot at the weekend , I hope in the different day.

The weather is not looking good.

2) Sunday PM

A pub dinner afterwards?

Please nominate!

Birdwood for me, I spend time at the zoo for work purposes so want something different. Saturday or Sunday is fine by me.

24-05-2012, 9:40pm
Birdwood sounds ok to me.

25-05-2012, 10:07am
Would prefer Birdwood, First preference Saturday PM, but could do Sunday as well.

Hi Kym, just received your PM re this meet. You have indicated that you may be steering towards a day at the Zoo. Do you have a particular place in mind to meet up??

27-05-2012, 10:14pm
I've just realised I've doubled booked if it's Saturday :(

27-05-2012, 10:18pm
Saturday is better for the weather http://www.weatherzone.com.au/long-range-forecast/28-day-rain/sa/adelaide

I'm open to Birdwood as well -- post you choice!

28-05-2012, 3:00am
will have to pass this one wife isnt doing to well and as her carer I need to be home for awhile

28-05-2012, 8:11am
Thanks Kym. Haven't checked if we can go yet, but if Birdwood is a car shoot, then I doubt it will hold my wife's attention (!).

28-05-2012, 9:31am
Zoo is ok for me sat arvo works best for me

28-05-2012, 9:34am
Current weather forecast shows some showers for Saturday and Sunday, so do not think the zoo will be good. An indoor venue such as Birdwood would be better. Saturday or Sunday will be good.

Hi all. I am OK with either Saturday or Sunday afternoons and a Pub dinner. I have no preferences re location. Just let me know where and I will be there.

29-05-2012, 9:35am
I only have transport in the city this weekend

29-05-2012, 9:06pm
Hi Kym should be able to get along on either day.

29-05-2012, 10:43pm
I saw ken last night and he was interested in the Zoo... It seems more can handle that.

Lets make it Adelaide Zoo ... Meet at the new main gate at 2:00pm

I would have loved to have come to this outing but unfortunately the $31 entrance fee puts it way out of reach for me at the moment. Maybe next time, hope you all have a good day

30-05-2012, 11:10pm
Is that Saturday or Sunday Kim.

31-05-2012, 1:20pm
I'm out, we're all sick with a nasty lurgy, it's knocked us around for over a week already :s

31-05-2012, 6:35pm
