Manchester Meet Up (just ten days away folks!)



I think this time all we really need to do is choose a meeting time and place on Saturday 4 February. I talked to Adam and in order to fit in all the good camera/film shops in Manc we were thinking of meeting at 11am. We never got round to discussing where so I reckon maybe Picadilly station? I guess it has some kind of capitalist coffee emporium so maybe we could meet there? I think it is a Starbuck so let’s meet in there at 11am? I hope that is ok with everyone and if I have forgotten to tag anyone under here then please add them on.

    Sorry to butt in but if you're organising a meet why not meet at the Lomo Store- we'd love to see y'all! We're at 20 Oldham Street, next door to Vibyk exchange and two or three doors down from the Night and Day.

    Great news! This is exciting! We could play photo bingo and talk about our cameras! What has happened to me? I have turned into a right geek! Damn you LOMO! (Shakes fist)

    @explorette @johnccc @panchoballard @jennysparkle @davidpowell @tirj @nicolas_noir Right kids there is a fair amount of Fbing, tweeting and texting going on surrounding this shindig tomorrow and the possible bad weather conditions. I have decided (in part due to the weatherman always being wrong and in part due to my cavalier and rather blase attitude) that I will still be going no matter what. This means that @fletchinski84 @louwest @superintendent and @easilydistracted will be coming as I am driving them over. We still aim to get to the Lomo Store for 11:30 am and if anyone needs to text me then my number is 07732173911 so if you decide to come / not come then letting me know would be fab. Also if the Lomo store people could please make it in, even if there is a lot of snow, this would be great! X

    So glad I looked at this tonight, saw the forecast earlier and worried this would be cancelled. Providing all is well in the morning I'll be there. Will send a text though just to confirm tomorrow. Have a safe drive over!
