Just curious, has there been a gathering/meet-up of any kind for Cafe members? I've seen this happen in other forums, and there are some talented people on here that I wouldn't mind spending a few hours shooting with and probably learn a ton from - so wondering if that has been setup before?

Yes, there have been a few. I think mostly out your way and the east in general. I haven't seen many/any out here on the left coast.

Check out the 5 "Special Sessions" sections at the bottom of the main page.
Nan & I have done 5 of the Merritt Island Shoots and they are a lot of fun.

Lots of informal meetings. A couple months ago I got together with a couple other Cafe film shooters in southern California. We have had organized field trips here in Arizona, but not for a few years now. I think it's time for another!

I've saw someone in Yosemite with NikonCafe hat. But they looked busy so I didn't say hi.

I've been looking for another excuse to go out to Joshua Tree.

It's probably my fav climbing area.

We need to do a SoCal meetup.. maybe plan a "Cafe Hike" at Joshua Tree NP.
My son lives in SoCal and I'm coming out for a visit the last week of September and 1st week of October. Anyone want to set one up for that time frame? I fly in on September 29 and leave 8 days later. Only day fixed for another event is Sunday, October 4 for the air show at Miramar.

JiN,

In NY, we've done the following open to all Cafe gatherings:
Bronx Zoo (x2),
Wolf Conservation Center in So. Salem (x2),
Mohonk,
NYC night bridges at night,
Coney Island Mermaid Parade (x2),
and Wave Hill Gardens in the Bronx.

Perhaps a couple more that I can't remember.

It's definitely time to set up a new one.

Let's do it! I know that Edwardneal lives around the area and there's quite a few Cafenians who live in LA (Jonathan, imagemaker...to name a few) Maybe we'll borrow the Nikon Cafe flag and take a group shot! Should be a great meet.

As I said, if the dates are right, I can go. Right now I am in the process of moving from Nevada to Port Hueneme for my next duty station. I will be there in late September for a school starting in October. After Oct 15 would be great for me. Any sooner, I'd have to wait for another trip.

God Bless,
David

Port Hueneme! I would say you lucked out. A great area, great places to shoot starting with Pt. Mugu and working from there. Good luck with your move.

I missed the others, so I think it's definitely time for a new gathering! From what I see, there are plenty of people from the tri-state area in the cafe.
