I was a little suprised that only eight people showed up. The sunset, although not spectacular, was still beautiful and I fel blessed for every one I get to see. Thanks to Chris for putting it on and as always there were some great people there to photograph the sunset with. Dan

*** Cancelled ***
It is raining with T-Storms in South Charlotte. Sorry for the late notice but I was hoping the skies might clear up.
Feel free to stop by, but I don't want anyone out in thunderstorms this evening. I'll try to reschedule for a time when the sun is more cooperative.

A Sunset and it's array of color only lasts for so long ... and parks close at dusk ... and if this is a learning workshop .. one person can only give so much of themselves to each person to limit the number is knowing your own ability to give a great workshop ... be kind to those who volunteer their time and willingness to share..

For those of us who have led group outings, there is a slight learning curve when we start out. Understanding and implementing all of the parameters that Meetup offers is sometimes a process. I hope Chris will have a positive experience leading the group, but griping about how he's doing it will be counter-productive to him hosting another.

I'm on the wait list...hoping I get a chance to go. Thanks to Chris for taking this on...being it seems to be popular, will you be doing another one anytime soon?
I hope the turnout is as good as the interest and people respect the event and cancel if they can't make it so others can attend.

As mentioned in the description, the format of this meetup is a workshop where I will go over some techniques for capturing sunsets and then let everyone have some free shooting time. Forty people is not a manageable number for this event. It would be unfair to those who might have questions about the subject or their camera settings for me to divide my time between so many folks.
My goal is to have everyone finish the day with a sunset image they can be proud of.

it is cpmg's policy to let the organizer of each event set their own parameters since they are the one taking responsibility for that event. however it should be noted that the sun sets 365 times a year and just b/c there is a waiting list for this event doesn't mean you can't go photograph it any time you'd like.

I have changed the RSVP mode to be automatic such that when a spot opens up, the person at the top of the waiting list will be automatically moved to the attending list. Sorry for any confusion with this. David and Theresa, I'll open an three spots to make sure you you get added
Here are the specific rules from Meetup for this RSVP mode:
"If a member is first in line on an automatic waiting list, they're moved into a spot automatically as soon as one opens up, and are notified by email."
