Dear f&c'ers! This is essentially a feeler thread in the first instance just to gauge interest in another longer meet later in the year, so the title is subject to change. I personally am really keen to relive mamiya645gate head back to the lakes as @nikki_s and I love it there and really enjoyed the last trip. So the purpose of this thread is really to get an idea of A) whether the lakes is good for everyone as a location to head to, B) degree of interest for a trip in general, C) time of year that people keen for, and D) duration of the trip. For my part, C and D would be in the region of October and a full week respectively, though I appreciate that most might prefer a long weekend, so likely best to plan for that instead. Once the thread evolves sufficiently, suitable polls will go up and we can reach a consensus. Let discussion commence!
