Finally I believe I've found the perfectly location to bring a Night Time Extravaganza Meet to the West Midlands membership, I've wanted to organise this meet for a long time but have been looking for the perfect location...

Well last week I was able to visit the location and confirm that it will be amazing for this meet...

I'd like to introduce you to the location of this meet..

Click on the google logo to go to this map if you want to get directions for the meet

[MAP]maps?q=Moreton+Corbet&hl=en&ll=52.804227,-2.651643&spn=0.003918,0.011689&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=15.717429,47.878418&oq=moreton+cor&hnear=Moreton+Corbet,+Shropshire,+United+Kingdom&t=h&z=18[/MAP]

So for the time being this will be a meet to see who would be interested in attending...obviously no one will be able to 100% commit to the meet until a date is confirmed but if you'd be interested in coming then please to post below..

This meet will be for general light painting including wire wool and if the weather permits then we will look to tag on a star trails guided session to the tail end of the meet..

This will be a fully guided meet so if you've never done light painting before them this will be a great meet for you to dip your toe into the waters of light painting... that said we encourage all members to attend no matter your individual level of experience

And you'll get to do stuff like this

Depending when, and probably more importantly where, count me in too. Will be driving down from Leeds so distance is a big factor, and I'm guessing the meet will be a Sunday, so that means work the next day........ Hey, how about a Friday night ?? (Wishful thinking)..... :)
Hi Rich, I'll certainly add you to the list, we're (Darrell and Myself) actually planning on making this a Saturday meet as we are conscious about people having to work on the Monday, it's a shame that the Yorkshire meet has to be a Sunday due to other commitments :banghead: I'm not so sure what the journey times would be like for Leeds to Shrewsbury area google seems to suggest about a 2 and half hour drive...

Ill monitor this too for the date like I always do. It should be a bit more practical for me to attend as assuming I don't cock anything up I should have 4 wheels and a roof by the end of the month (y)

Hi Ben, I can safely say it's not going to happen in the next two weeks (y) we will be looking at a couple of months before this meet ;) it's close to Shrewsbury, so not totally local but it's maybe a hour from Warwick (y) though you maybe able to car share ;)
