    Inspired from photostar's thread about finding a tog buddy, I thought this might be a good idea.

    I'll be devising a list/sticky of sorts for those who enjoy meeting up with other togs in the areas for what I like to call 'jollies'. Local outings or mini trips out to take photos.

    I personally like meeting up with other photographers locally, as do many other people on here.

    Anyway, if you'd like to put your name down, put down the following information

    I'll start

    Area : Manchester / Bury
    Sex : Male
    Types of photography : Anything
    Photography dislikes : Nothing
    Short notice? : Sometimes
    Weekends or Weekdays : Any
    Day or Night : Any
    Can travel : Yes
    Has car : Yes


    Does that sound like a plan?
    If you can think of anything that should be added, feel free to suggest it, and add your own info (with as much or as little information as you feel comfortable with).

    Marcel, brilliant idea but can i just make a suggestion, would it be a good idea to include your own self professed level of competence? I for one would be reluctant to accompany a professed pro for the simple reason I would not be comfortable given my lack of competence in this field. Regards Jim

    i think this is a great idea, i did make a post a while ago to see if any peeps local wanted to start meeting up as a club type thing. not to many where that close though..

    Marcel Maybe you could make this easier for people to trawl through. Have you thought to make a new section.
    togg buddies, and within it make a few sticky posts split by areas ie
    North
    North East
    North West

    etc, you get the idea..

    How about inside the "Meets" section, we have a list of regions? Then a representative for each region to organise meets? Works on another forum I use very well as I for example used to be a Cheshire Rep (Non tog related), I used to keep track of any new users in the area and basically introduce myself to them via pm and tell them to keep an eye on the regional chat section for upcoming meets etc. How does this sounds? It just makes it more personal imo :)
