    I would love to have had time to discuss the gear everyone brought and why they chose what they did. Helps a newbie like me decide where to go from here. I also never found out if there was a designated place to go to lunch.

      What wide angle did you use?

    Other than the no shows, it was a great meetup. Sounds like they are willing to do a 4 hour photo tour.

    2 · February 15, 2014

    • Richard S.

      Should no shows for several meet ups for the year be kicked out of the club?

    • Patrick S.

      In my line of work, prepaying / non-refundable deposit is highly effective. Makes a client think twice before committing, rather than spontaneously agreeing to something they might not be seriously pursuing. That would apply here, too. Even if they pay and don't show up, the time you allotted / paid for isn't ruined. And more people could still be let in if the payment is a deterrence to flakes.

    I rsvp'd yes months back when theme tip was first posted...then last Sunday when my camera broke down I immediately re-rsvp'd no in order to push the waiting list up and I posted saying I wouldn't show because oft gear breakdown. Al immediately offered a backup camera for me to use but I informed him I already RSVP no... After his thoughtful offer I re-rsvp'd yes I was automatically put on the waiting list. I never got any confirmation that I was pushed up the waiting list to a slot open. Had I known of all the no shows, I would've shown up with

    2 · February 16, 2014

    • Al A.

      Phil that's the point: You didn't get pushed into the reservation list because those that hogged it and didn't show kept you from coming.

      1 · February 16, 2014

    • Phil K.

      That would be correct Al.... I knew that

    I rsvp'd but was on the waiting list. When I saw the May tour opened up, rsvp'd for that tour.

    Richard - I agree it is very unfair and inconsiderate to those who provide the event and those on the waiting list. This has to end! Perhaps 2 no shows with out properly canceling thru the website get probation for 6 mos of events or dropped off the club permanately.

    2 · February 16, 2014

    • Richard S.

      Bill, you are not one other people I have an issue with. There is a select list of people who sign up and almost never show up. These folks should be either banned from the club for 6 months or not allowed to sign up for things outside of Ed's place. All of the three Fox tours had a high amount of no shows. All three had a huge waiting list. I had one event last year that 25 people signed up and 5 showed up. One solution would be for Events like the Fox that charges a fee would be to collect the fee ahead of time, plus the handling fee. No refunds for no shows period.

      1 · February 16, 2014

    • Kathy B.

      Okay folks everyone breath. In the meantime, we'll work on more effective timing for posting events. If you have some constructive feedback, it is certainly welcomed!

      February 16, 2014

  • Phil K.

    Bummer.... I wouldve shown up had I known that... But whoever does...except those that don't show or don't RSVP NO when they know they can't make it!!

    February 16, 2014

  • Phil K.

    Well as luck would have it, my D300s broke down on me this past sunday. Seems the mirror is stuck in the UP position and won't go back down…AND…I get the dreaded "ERR" message blinking on the top LCD screen…not happy! Have fun everyone…I may still come with film and camera.

      If you've read the above Phil....20 no shows! Sucks.

    Kudos to our tour leader Carl who learned well last year that it's impossible to guide a large group of photographers as he would a usual tour! Saint Carl!
    And to those that signed up but didn't show up and therefore kept those on the wait list from moving up: BLATTTTTTTT!

    • Richard S.

      Some of the people who don't show up are the same ones over and over.

    If this meetup is like the others that had limited space and a wait list there will be way too many people that do not show up nor cancel ahead of time. Consider this a bug in your ear!
