    Don't know if I'm going to make it yet. I doubt I could spend much time looking at tripods, but Barker's galleries have some very nice shots (especially the outdoor sports images). The slideshow at 6 pm might be worth it.

    damn, I would love to go, but I don't see it happening. Last week we did a compression test on the race car because it has seemed a little slow lately. It was not good. So this week we have been thrashing on getting a new motor built for it. We have a race this Friday and Saturday. I just got home from the machine shop, spent all night putting the motor back together. Got the bottom end together and the head bolted on. Tomorrow I have to get the rest of it back together and Thursday ill be thrashing in the garage getting the new motor swapped in.

    Let me know how it goes! and if your board and want something to do.... :biggrin:

    Yeah, I just found out I've got a conflict tomorrow night myself. If anyone else goes, give us the full report.

  5. Hmmm . . . I guess I need to check this area more often. I'm a little late on this one.

    How was it?

    I don't think anyone went to it.
     
  7. I dropped by in the morning to drool over the tripods. There were a few folks there from Gitzo/Bogen Imaging. Found a nice tripod for hiking that was $900. I walked out with a water bottle and T-shirt.

    Didn't make it to the other events though.

    Glad to hear you dropped by, Brian. Nine bills for a hiking tripod? Ouch, that's the price of that macro lens I want! You'll have to wear the new t-shirt at our next event :wink:
