www.gamefair.co.uk

If so how about meeting up with other Olympus users? The Olympus UK Photo Safari group are planning a get together on Saturday. For details see the CLA Game Fair entry at

I will be there in some capacity, although not taking photos all day.

Do you have a lunchtime meeting time as well or is it too far in advance to know?

Thanks,

Nick

Happy with a lunchtime meet up. Only suggested an early time before the main arena events started, lunch time sounds a good idea especially for anyone traveling far.

Guys, if you're in the Safari Group - check the thread in our coordination site on this event... something very special being organised ;)

I'll have more news after my meeting in person, with the Organisers at Blenheim next week.

Kind Regards

Hello everyone,

thanks to Safari Group member David Gault for proposing this event :

Saturday 26th July - 10am

The CLA Game Fair - the World's original, largest and most prestigious countryside exhibition will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in style this year at Blenheim Palace. With every imaginable country sport and rural activity comprehensively represented, this very special annual event appeals equally to country sports enthusiasts, countryside lovers and visitors of all ages.
http://www.gamefair.co.uk/

We are putting together a team of 12 Safari Group members, who will be given special access to all areas, free press passes and free tickets for partners and family members to cover this event. It will also be an opportunity to use the E-420, E-520, E-3, 12-60mm SWD, 50-200mm SWD, 14-35mm f2 SWD, 35-100mm SWD, Leica 14-150mm OIS in a real world challenging event :)

I realise the event won't be local for everyone (I'll be setting off at 4am to get there for 7am) - but I guarantee you will have a fantastic experience as part of our team...

p.s. we're working on our next Safari Group report, following a number of events this month around the country, and will be creating a further, follow up report from this event... this will be a high profile opportunity to get your photography published!

Only a handful of tickets left, please move quickly ;)

Kind Regards
