Re: Anyone for a get together?

There's a couple of threads that have been started EH-1 as a result of this thread. Experience tells me that someone simply needs to take the lead on this, suggest a location, offer some alternative dates and then the meet seems to pick up momentum and get arranged...

Go for it... if it's close enough for me, I'll come along to that one too as well as the one I am arranging locally here.

Definitely up for a Cambs/ Herts meet subject to dates.

For Autumn colour in Herts, I remember that Broxbourne Woods (National Nature Reserve http://www.hertsdirect.org/envroads/...isit/13060152/ ) and Northaw Great Wood (near Cuffley - Country Park http://www.friendsofnorthawgreatwood.org.uk/ ) are good. I'm sure there are others. The Botanic Gardens in Cambridge always has something worth photographing, and has a good arboretum/ woodland area.

Thanks for the suggestions Hugh! Perhaps people could have a vote on one of these places?

Sorry, I'm in Nottingham... I'll change my profile to say where I'm from, so I'll have to take a look at the various meeting places/dates to see which one would be easiest for me to get to

Botanic gardens sounds good... and has the added attraction of being a stones throw from some good pubs!

Botanic gardens is also the one that most appealed to me! Now all we need is Ian to agree to come & bring a 300mm lens for me to play with!

Re: Anyone for a get together?

All

As my previous message, I had been planning to arrange a get together for the Olympus Safari Group in Cambridge.

I've set a date of either Saturday 4th or Sunday 5th September. Sunday is my preference at the moment, but I'll to go with the majority.

There is no set plans at the moment, but I was thinking for starting at the Botanical Gardens and then just strolling around the river, universities, etc.

A few colleagues at work live in the area, so I'm going to buy them a beer or two and a pick there brains over the next few days, to see what local knowledge I can gain.

The gathering is not an exclusive Olympus Safari Group and your more than welcome to join me.

I'll set up a separate thread once I have some more defined plans.


Regards

Simon
