I stopped getting email updates so was unaware of new posts! Confused

I won't be able to make (with my car) it so I would like to see it postponed, but if others are still keen then I don't see why not!

I would have also been interested in the ccg paintball, if i had not just had a shoulder reconstruction.

Well if my 86 is registered i was going to go down by the lake and take some photos, and then go out to Hume for the "industrial" photos.
If anyone wants to join then just come along. PM me and we can meet up somewhere. Hoping to borrow a friend's 20D, and maybe my friend too.

I'm still up for it

I was thinking for those that still turn up we can get some pics around the lake then head out cotter way for some bush picks and maybe into Hume, Fyshwick or Mitchell for the industrial type.

Chris again sorry to hear about you car if my passenger seat is free you are more than welcome to fill it

fine by me.

what time?

Just remember if it is warm there will be shed loads of people there so piccis can be a problem. If so, we can drive down towards the boat house and up onto the grass to get some pics with the bridge and PHhouse in the bground.

Ok, so 10am, in the carpark behind the globe. Do we mean the one closest to the bridge (which will fill up fast) or the one further up near the visitors centre.

Will, do... What specifically do you want me to put in there?

umm btw the professional photographer is a no go. He was my house mate and I just gave him notice, so he aint really talking to me :S

But my friend is a very accomplished ametuer photographer and he will be there.

Cool good enough.

I'm hoping to get my mate the video camerman there also, if' he's available this weekend.

So we got any idea on grp A numbers now?

I can count 4 definate grp A's. Squid, Jono, Brendan and myself.

Just put down the definates, like time, place of meeting, what will be happening etc, maybe a map as well.

Bummer about the photographer. Im goign to see if i can either steal my friend's 20D or get him to come out with it.

EDIT: Also if we can find somwhere which is deserted i would like to have a go at some rolling shots like this one: http://img13.exs.cx/img13/2279/car21ei.jpg
But we will need some blankets/towels and occy straps to do it. So if people have some picnic rugs or old towels or similar lying around, and want to give a few rolling shots a go, then bring them along (must be clean).

Justen will most likely not be coming.

In regards to the photos, i think that's a mad idea Takai. If we drive out to uriarra, i can think of number of spots where we can get those kind of shots.

Heh, Uriarra, if i can stand my car skipping (literally) over the road on the way. I was more thinking about some carparks in Fyshwick and Mitchell.

EDIT: To get those sort of shots you are only doing 5km/h ish. i.e. SLOOOOOW

Just got word from Justen. He can most likely make it on Sunday so that should make it 5 group A's there Very Happy

This should make some sweet photos (and maybe video).

I'll do my best to make it down too (just gotta make sure I have an early one the night before Cool ). So that would make 8 Group A's if Toobs can make it too. Wow, that would make for some awesome group A photos.

So, for us out of towners, travelling south I turn left off Commonwealth into Albert, then where?

I suggest some photos at the lake (after we find a good spot), followed by a drive out to Hume for some more photos (industrial style). After that, not sure anything is happening with Bates now, Squid hasn't said anything.

I'm heading out to Bates this afternoon to pick up the other GT4 so I will ask Mark?

EDIT: DON'T FORGET TO WASH YOUR CARS (jono Laughing )

Yep Mark is the workshop manager so he may be able to sort something out. The easiest place to get to on the lake I think would be to head down towards the boatshed and turn right at the end of the road near the boat ramp and drive up onto the grass. From there you can get anthing you want in the background from various angles. just a suggestion

Might have to catch up with you guys around lunch time or something if I sleep in which I probably will.

That was a great turn out guys, so thanks to everyone who turned up. Shame we couldn't get to Bates, so hopefully next time.

Here's a link to a slideshow of this pics I took:
http://www.users.on.net/~zasa/Photos/Group%20A%20M eet/

I'll be editing some of these to make them look more interesting.

If anyone wants the full sized image, pop me an email with the corresponding filename of the photos you want.

I can't wait to see the video.

We will have to do this again sometime Smile
