Re: Olympus event - Giffords Circus, Frampton-upon-Severn on Friday 2nd August 2013

I just opened my envelope and I'm going too! It certainly will be like an E-Group Meeting and a great opportunity to meet some more members in person!

The times of the event are from 12.00 to 2.30pm and I suspect it will be a fairly intensive two and a half hours. Does any one fancy meeting for a chat and a coffee either before or after the event?

Tickets include admission for a friend, if any one is unsuccessful in getting a ticket they are welcome to come as my guest.

PS There will be cameras and lenses to try, so hands off the 75mm f1.8 - it's mine!

Great, how about 10.30 at The Stables cafe at Saul? http://www.thestablescafe.co.uk/index.html It's situated beside the canal less than a mile from our venue, if we leave at 11.30 we should be in good time.

Anyone else up for this?

After the event we can reconvene in "The Bell" or go take some photos!

I can recommend the café and some lovely walks along the canal and onto the path that runs to Slimbridge.

It will be great to put names to faces

Only joking, Shirley, it will be great to see you again.

Will there be OM-Ds available to try out? I've always felt mine underexposed a bit and would love to have a side by side comparison of one, since I've never seen another one in the real world despite looking hard for 18 months

Haha, I think I'll leave the film cameras at home that day - or at least in the car.

I think the last time we met was at my exhibition. I find it more than a little flattering that you have one of my pictures on your wall!

I'm not sure if I can get to the cafe for 10.30am. If not, hopefully I will still get to meet Forum members at the Circus.
