Hi everyone,

It's high time that the next meeting be organised for the southern half of NSW! But before we do, we need to know if we have the numbers to go ahead with such a meeting following a disappointing turn out at the Bathurst meet last year. Each of the meetings that Lee Scott and myself put together comes at some personal cost, which we're glad to contribute towards, however if people don't show up or show interest, then it makes it hard to keep on dipping into our own pockets.

We want to set an agenda full of footage and imagery that people will bring along, or any other presentation that people would like to give that's weather related. We will have all the AV gear and both PC and MAC laptops.

We've set aside the 21st of April, so plenty of warning. It won't suit everybody, however with plenty of warning perhaps people can plan ahead and make it work. The more people we can get, the more likely we will arrange further meetings.

In addition, i plan to drive up to Katoomba after work on Friday from Canberra, so that i can do some sunrise photo shoots around the area on both Sat and Sunday, such as the Wentworth Falls, the 3 Sisters and so on. If anyone would like a bit of a photography help session, then i'd be happy to have you join me.

So far the agenda for the meeting will be:

Greg Sorenson - Season highlights including the 20th Jan Bredbo chase, 29/30th Nov Canberra Cg barrage including the infamous strike within 100m caught on still and other footage.

Troy Barrett - 9th Nov, 2011 Urana Plains Chase, plus other season highlights

If you'd like to share anything with the group then please email me at gregs10@westnet.com.au and i will do my best to put you down. It's been an active season for southern NSW so there should be plenty of awesome work to look at!!!

Any questions, just email or PM me.

Cheers,

Greg

Hey Greg,

You can count me in for this one, will be there if I can. I also wouldn't mind tagging along for that sunrise photo session to test my skills & maybe learn some new ones! I'm not usually a keen early riser though lol, but i'm sure I will make an exception hehe.

QUICK UPDATE!!!!!!

I was contacted by the RSL club last night and they apologised for double booking us on the 21st....errrrrrrrrr.
So, i'm waiting on a call back for moving the date to the 28th. Will make a further announcement once i know... if failing that i will look for somewhere else in Katoomba.

Looks to be a great event coming up:

Greg Sorenson - Season highlights
Troy Barrett - season highlights
Michael Keene - season highlights
Michael King - Discussion on storm chasing

Still plenty of additional slots for people to contribute towards.

Okay, after ringing around some places i found a good alternative for the 21st of April - The Alexander Hotel, Leura which is just down the road from Katoomba - and to make it even better, the use of the room/s are free. I should get a phone call this avo to confirm the date and will make an adjustment to the invite.

I hope you can Dave, is there anyone else in the BLue mountains who might be interested? I guess Blizz would be the obvious person.

Blizz, aslaws, PD, Laurier Williams (Millthorpe), Drew (Clarence), DaveC, Ducksta (Lithgow)

are a few off the top of the head but there must be a good dozen contributors in the BM's & CT's.

My attendance depends on work and some other issues but I've got it pencilled in quite heavily. smile

Unfortunately, running a shop in Millthorpe that is busiest at the weekend with tourists, I can't make a Saturday, Greg. Which is more than a pity, because I'd love to put some faces to names. Thanks, however, for your efforts, and if the show goes ahead I may be able to provide a bit of a surprise to make up for not attending. PM me closer to the event about this.

gday greg after spending a weekend camping in that area recently im really keen to come down for the meet (i'll just borrow your crayon for now and scribble myself in) what days will you be in the area etc? i'd love to catch up with some of yas to do some shoots in the local area, and to pick up some tips to fine tune what i lack. I'll have my forby for anyone not keen to 2wd into some of the spots. i'll camp out of the car anyhow so accoms not a issue for me, more saved for fuel then smile

I dont have much that i could show considering the lack of decent systems.. but i could fill a few thumb drives of one big supercell we got that smashed taree and areas to the south, including some footage of the 5 day clean up with the ses and some footage from my trip to wagga and griffith the assist with the recent floods. and pop in a few decent shots i have managed of late.

Hey Core, mate share what ever you like - i'm sure you have some great work for us weather nuts to enjoy.
I'll be driving up either fri / sat, haven't quite made up my mind. I'd like to try and squeeze in 2 mornings around the waterfall locations to make the most of it. Sunday morning is def a goer tho in terms of a shoot, Mr Keene will be joining me for that one, which of course you're more than welcome to join us.

Great to meet you Mick, hope you make it. Will be good to recap this past season with many others.

Even if you're a bit late Dave, no biggy mate.

I should be finishing my vid this weekend, been so darn busy atm, will be good to get away to the BM. I've got a house booked in Blackheath, a fair but cheaper than in Katoomba! Should get in town by 8pm or so, and will do an early morning shoot Sat, then another with others on Sunday. I'm pumped!

You might get some nice Autumn shots up Blizz's favourite treed street. I think it's Wentworth St - lovely tree lined st - also has a good bakery. smile
