    We have to drop out. Diane's back is still out and my MacPro Start Up disc is full, which means I am going to have to spend a couple of days transferring files to other drives.

    • Ellen Q.

      Sorry to hear you and Diane can't make it :-( Hope we'll see you soon at another event. Please convey my "Get Better Soon" wishes to her. BTW, my new lens arrived today and I'll try using it for the first time tomorrow!

      July 5, 2013

    • Deri D.

      Awesome! I look forward to seeing your images with the new lens!

    I signed up to go a couple days ago.
    Was super excited and now a little disappointed because I am having some car battery issues that I must resolve so I don't get stranded somewhere.

      Hi Susan, Yes I'm still planning on carpooling. I'll call you later this afternoon after work to figure out the details.

    don't wait on me. I may have rudie due to family going to a wedding, if I do and can't get anyone to watch her, won't be able to come unless its just for a short while....too warm to leave in car and gnshots would freak her out anyways

    July 3, 2013

    • Ellen Q.

      Thanks for letting us know. I will soon know about living with a dog as I will be getting one this weekend :-)

      July 4, 2013

    • Meghavi S.

      That's exciting! Usually I don't have her, but I do on Saturday most likely. Miss you. I hope to see you soon if I don't make it out!

    I am a new member and glad to see a gathering in the Salem area. I am signed up for a Wildflower Macro class with REI Outdoor School this Saturday so won't be able to make this one. It looks fun and hopefully another Salem gathering will happen soon! Enjoy.

    July 3, 2013

    • Dawn B.

      Sorry you'll miss this one. Macro class sounds like fun though! If you of any good events to photograph in the Salem area, feel free to send a message to any of the Organizers listed up in the left side menu. We're always happy to get new ideas!

    • Dawn B.

      If you **have** any... argh! :D

      July 3, 2013

  • Dawn B.

    I would also suggest meeting by the restroom facility, which is near the center of the activity.

    July 2, 2013

  • Dawn B.

    There should be lots of food at the event, and there are 2 big battles - one in the morning the South wins and one in the afternoon that the North wins. (At least that is how it went last year!) There are also camps, stores and other mini-events. It's really worth spending the whole day.

    July 2, 2013

  • Ellen Q.

    When it gets closer to the event, I will email my cell phone number to the attendees so that they can contact me if they have any questions.

    Later this week, I will also post a good place to meet at the event so that we can all start out together.

    There is also the possibility of going out to lunch after the event if there is interest.

    If anyone lives out near Mall 205/David Douglas area and wants to carpool...

    June 23, 2013

    • T

      I can meet you at mall 205. Coming from south Vancouver. Would you like to meet by the red robin? At what time?

      July 1, 2013

  • Rae Lynn N.

    I will be on vacation. Have fun. If you have any question, please email Ellen Quale

    June 25, 2013

  • Deri D.

    I have a St Paul Rodeo Slack that afternoon but will try to get to the reenactment in the morning if all works out well....

    June 24, 2013

  • Rae Lynn N.

    Thanks Ellen, I will post that you are the "host"!

    June 9, 2013

  • Ellen Q.

    I would like to volunteer to be the Meetup Host for this event. I went last year on my own and found it to be a great learning experience as well as full of excellent photo opportunities. If you have any interest in the Civil War, don't miss it!
