    Ausphotography National 'Meets' Day

    A couple of years ago, we had a day, where lots of Ausphotography member meets were organised around the Country, all on the same day. We even had a challenge of taking a group shot of each meet at midday, with a tree in the photo.

    Some of the meets even did phone calls to each other to say hello and find out what fellow AP members were doing at their meets.

    Is there any interest in doing something similar again soon. Basically we choose a day, and then arrange local meets around the country, all on the same day. We could even challenge each group to get a certain type of photo, or other challenge ideas are also welcome.

    Would love to hear what members think of this idea, and possibly doing it again in the not to distant future.

    Don't think I'd have a problem getting the Hunter APers interested either, Rick. We've been in need of a good excuse for another meet, and always appreciate a challenge or three as well! Can't let those Banana-benders have all the fun, eh?

    We haven't had a meet in Melbourne for quite a while, so this might be good to push things along, sounds good to me!

    OK. so lets pick a day.

    I reckon a Saturday or Sunday would suit most members. Any preferences on the date? We could do it the Long Weekend for the Queens Birthday (Mon June 11th - except for WA)?

    Just a few points.
    #1 Melbourne is not and should not be part of Victoria.
    #2 The Eastern suburbs of Melbourne start at around about Traralgon these days so technically that part shouldn't be part of Victoria either.
    #3 Anywhere East of about Bairnsdale is now the real Victoria.

    See points #1 - #3 above, plenty of room here in Victoria for a meet.

    I reckon stay away from the long weekend, many people have plans already or go away so it might affect numbers.

    Andrew, I agree too much is made of the city, Victoria starts about 100kms out! I'd prefer a regional meet or two

    Yeah I agree Mic Its a long way for Andrew and Geoff to travel to the city for a days shoot, so why not some Melbourne members come down this way

    The long weekend is good, Rick. If the day is a Sunday that gives everyone (except WA) a full day to process and recover! :the: What's more, we might get some great fireworks shots that weekend too!
