After some discussion it was decided that people mainly wanted to meet up with each other and talk, share ideas, look at plates etc, so we are going to meet up at my house in the Berkeley Hills, near Tilden Park and with a view of the Bay.

There will be BBQ and refreshments available, organic meets and vegetables sourced locally and some good california beer, wine and non alcoholic drinks. 

I will have on hand a couple of 4X5 Cameras and a 8X10, chemicals and metal available for use, so if you have never tried the process you are welcome to come along and have a go.  There is a dark tent set up with that can be shared, so if you don't have a dark box feel free to bring a camera if you want to shoot. If you want to bring a dark box that would be cool, I would love to see one.

But if you just want to come along, with some plates to show, and meet up with your fellow wet plate photographers you will be most welcome.

Please IM me and I will send instructions as to how to find my place. As its a little difficult to find I will also meet up at a local Coffee Shop at 11:00 am so you can meet there and follow me up the hill or just follow the instructions I will send you. 

The 11:00 meet up will be at The French Hotel which servers up good coffee, and we should be up at my house by 11:30
1538 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94709-1517

If you have any difficulty getting there, call me on my cell - 415 244 8374

I'm almost ( 96% ) sure that I can make it.

I'm also pretty sure I can make it. I'll certainly try, and I'll plan to bring my camera.

Excellent.  I'd also love to see your recent "forgeries."
