hey all,

still planing to gather on may 1st and shoot plates and film.  all are welcome.  steve from black art wood craft will attend as well as mike from artcraft chemicals.

Can you keep us updated on what will occur at the event as it shapes up Eddie?  Will Mike and Steve still be showing?  Is the sell/swap still on?  Will there be tuneage?  Revelry?  Fire?  Wabbits?

I've been thinking of driving the Magic Bus over and bringing along a bellowless 8x20 Korona & holders to sell along with a couple lenses to pay for gas for the trip.  Might also be time to let loose of that 20" Vitax.  I'll also bring that 5x7 Seroco Petzval and maybe a Rembrandt portrait lens and darktent to unload.

I might be after a Dallmeyer 2C if one shows up.

Joe


har har har!

thanks joe,

there will be deer, turkeys (not just you guys) and rabbits being pulled from hats! Frank Petronio will be coming as well....he is in charge of all the fire!

mike and steve are scheduled to show. maybe we can get a 50/50 raffle in on some chemical goodies....

yes, please bring some stuff to swap and sell. i will make arrangements for a tent and some tables. i was just not able to pull it off as grand as i had planned but i will try and include all the fun non-the-less. the more goodies that show will help to get some of the tire kickers to come on over......

i know of a 2C that will be there....not sure if it will be for sale but it will be available for play!

It is wet plate collodion day on May 1st. it is a day that all WPC people shoot a plate and post it on a website. we will be having a group effort to do this. we will also be shooting film and large format. i will have some models, food, and great local micro brew beer!

it will be worth the drive. i/we hope you (and all others) are able to make it. so far we have about 20-25 people waiting for the day to arrive.

there is 50 acres of forest to play in as well. i will be arranging local forays to nearby shooting destinations for those that want to shoot photos of something besides the models. we have 1600 era stone houses, bridges (BIG and small) rocks, mountains, barns, trees waterfalls and old trains to name a few of the awesome potential all within 15 mins drive.

Ah, dang...Frank is gonna be there? Still haven't met him although we talk pretty regularly...
 
If he's in charge of fire, make sure there is a bucket of water close by!
 
Tell him I said hello!

When you meet Frank.

You will be meeting a soft spoken gentlemen.
And when you meet Eddie ......
Eddie is the guy ,who will get up at dawn and drive  down  a dusty road, to look through a box of rusted nails  in search of camera and parts...

Sounds like a great time I will try and make it.

Troy, H!

I'm in Toronto, Canada, where we are having a lovely summer day, where it will be 62 degrees in a few hours.

okay.  less than  a month.  frank petronio is organizing some models.   (could get wild with frank).

steve from black art wood craft is coming and will bring some toys to look at.

Mike from artcraft chemicals will also be there.  order them and pick them up and save on the shipping. 

there will be raffles and chinese auctions for some great wet plate chemicals.

should be great.

woodstock NY is only 15 miles away....the original site is only 30 miles away.

think about how fun this will be.  large format shooter, wet heads, grain alcohol, ether, loacl BEER, and BBQ action...oh!  and lets not forget model.
