Laughter is Serious Business (EPyC Biweekly meetup)

Stuff happens. So check this page regularly to see if the event details have been revised, or if you need to update your RSVP. One thing hasn't changed though: it's still just AED 20 if you want to join us on the evening. With that out of the way, here's what we currently have slated for Tuesday:

Discussion Topic: Laughter is serious business (Ashraf Jandali)
This week, Ashraf Jandali will share with us the secrets behind his lighthearted work - the photos you can't help smiling at. There will be a live demonstration once he is done speaking, so don't miss this chance to learn how to create work that will amuse and impress all your friends!

Member showcase (Shabnam)
For this section, members show us 10 to 12 of their best shots, and answer questions about them. Want to try your hand at this in the future? Talk to an organizer.

Photo Competition (Theme: Long Exposures)
Please send us two of your images by email ([masked]) by 5 PM on the day of the event, or bring your photos to the event on a USB thumb drive. To make our lives easier, please rename the files so that they have your name in them, e.g. Ahmed1.JPG and Ahmed2.JPG. We all vote on who has done the best job, and the winner gets a prize. Please note that if you don't show up, or pass your photos to the organizers on time, your shots will not be eligible for a prize.


We will be meeting in Studio Attitude in Al Quoz, in the same series of warehouses as Botanica. If you need help figuring out how to get there, check out the location map, or make use of the GPS coordinates [masked],[masked]). More information on the venue can be found on their site or at 04 3384114.

We also have YouTube videos showing you how to get there from Sheikh Zayed Road, with detailed text directions posted underneath. This one shows the way if you are coming from the direction of the World Trade Centre and Dubai Mall, and this one depicts the way from the direction of Abu Dhabi, the marina, and Al Barsha.

    Dear Organizers..
    Please consider the world cup footbal games, as most of us are following these games.
    Can we reschedule the meeting during the weekend [Friday] at 5PM, so we can attend the meeting then watch the football after that?
    I appreciate your consideration...

      Hi Nader and Shadi, we already considered changing the timing but unfortunately we couldn't do that so we will keep it as it is but I promise to finish it up early so you can watch the second half at home ;)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
