Hurrah! Bring along your new purchases to show off, or old ones, or things you've made or projects under construction or books to swap or anything you like.

Dear Mr Fallowfield,
Many thanks for the comprehensive update on the local events. As Madam Takara says, there certainly is plenty going on! The Friday night ones (5th) could be be a bit tight for us (by the time I'd be back from work and changed a big chunk of the evening would already be gone) but the BCLM one could be interesting, provided our children will not have had enough of it for this year by then. Out of interest, is anyone else here planning to go the the BCLM Halloween night on the 1.11.14?

Yours,
Miranda.

I won't feel like going as the price is ridiculous for the short evening openings. It used to be £7 but they want full price for entry. Well sorry but they can whistle for it

Dear all, got this message from Phil one of the photographers who took some pics at the Griffin last time. It looks like they will do another session in the future if people are interested.

"Well the basics are -  myself and my far better half as well as being keen semi-pro photographers with a few connected business interests also run a small, local camera club.
 We are always looking for new and interesting things to do and subjects to photograph to (hopefully) keep members interested.  Following my own visit to see yourselves at The Griffin it occurred to me that inviting a few SP'ers along for a 'studio evening' would allow a win-win situation where members gain something new and attending SP'ers get some studio-style images.
 Our first attempt at this combination is to take place next Tuesday evening at The Kingfisher, Wallheath.s
 M***, H*****, R*** and 1-2 others have agreed to attend from c. 7pm and there are likely to be 12-15 club members.  We shall have two studio sets with proper backdrops and lighting and attending SP'ers will be sent images once i have collated them after the event.
 We would be delighted if you wish to come along, or if not for this particular event then perhaps a future similar one.   Whilst I do not wish to tread on the toes of any organisers or the people at The Griffin i feel that the additional and better space available may well offer a good venue for additional SP meetings and events.   As part of the 'promotional team' for the club I can help this to happen if required.
 Please feel free to call to chat about such"

How much are they paying you as their models?
Who has the rights to the pictures, and who as control over image distribution?
With approx. 20 people is there an acceptable amount of space in the venue?
Are the 'photographers' covered by third party insurance?


I'll let you know if I think of anything else...

I had a friend request from him on Facebook and the same info. I was a bit peaved you might say. The guy is so obviously not a Steampunk, we spent ages posing for him at the Griffin but never heard anymore from him nor saw any photos. now he gets in touch at short notice for a photo session and wants to offer us a new venue for steampunk events. Maybe I'm just getting cranky but I turned him down.

We booked the 'early bird' tickets which pulled down the price a bit, and if you're happy to walk up from the overflow car park the parking is free. Could be worse; over the summer we went to Alton Towers and and to spend £88 to get in, and that was with 'adults go free' vouchers!

Yours,
Miranda.

The Electric Cinema in Birmingham is showing 'The General' this coming Sunday (October 19) at 12 midday.  A few of us have made plans to go and see it- anyone else want to tag along?
