    really debating on going or not... 3 of the 4 photographers I really respect. Price is high IMO. I'm in serious need to upgrade my gear, but I can't do both.

    what OTAP think?

    I'm planning on going but then again, I don't need to upgrade my gear. I've offered Tony my place if he and the other instructors don't want to stay in hotels. If they don't take me up on it, you're welcome to stay with me.

    holy shit. That looks fun. I might sign up too. What are the odds it'll still be open as of July 1?

    Slim to none. I think it's going to sell out in a matter of hours.

    you think so? don't get me wrong... I've worked with Sam once before, and the rest of the crew are great photographers, but are they really well known outside of FM? I know melanie is in her community, and Tony's been in Rangefinder, but its a pretty high price for a group of photographers who don't have that name recognition....

    They've already had over 100 inquiries and there are only 30 slots open.

    inquiries.. yeah, I bet they did get a lot of people to sign up. but I have the feeling a lot of people are going to be turned off by the 1600 price tag... we're not all ballahs like you jim :rofl:

    Hmmm.....good point about the price. Still, I'm willing to lay odds that it's sold out in less than a week.

    Anyway, come on down and I'll let you play with my toys. :bigthumb:

    how about sleep on your couch.. hahah actually if doug(hardlyboring) and I both end up going we might split a room... if I'm by myself, I'll probably stay with my mom.... even though it's a 2hr drive. the earliest day is 630... I don't have any issues leaving her place @ 6... my mom and step dad are up for work by then anyway.

    Just let me know. If the other guys don't take me up on my offer, I'll have plenty of room.

    I'm sure I could also talk my wife into fixing us all a great meal one night. She's a marvelous cook! Plus you guys would have this to play with
