    March 31st or April 7th? I can organize it. If we can get enough people I'll see if we can go somewhere unique (need ideas for where). Say part of the day on Mt. Washington and the rest somewhere else?

    As for the unique place, there's a bunch of museums around the area, I can call around and see if we can get a special tour. Or if someone else has an idea please share, I'm willing to do calls to people to see what we can do.

    Some ideas:
    Trolley museum - http://www.pa-trolley.org/
    Falling Water/Kentucky Knob, http://www.paconserve.org/index-fw1.asp http://www.kentuckknob.com/
    Phipp's - http://www.phipps.conservatory.org/
    Hartwood Acre's - http://www.county.allegheny.pa.us/parks/story/hartwood.asp

    Any other ideas?

    I can most likely make it if it's on April 7.

    Would anyone be interested in shooting abandoned or historic buildings?

    I find this most interesting. I live just south of Indiana Pa. and have been looking for some form of local club to learn more on photography. I have 2 Canon XT digital cameras now and I am starting to learn them a lil slow tho but some help would really be appreciated.

    I think it would be great to get some thing started and have a few more jump in and lets get something started.

    OOOh! I would love to attend this meet up, but it looks like both of these days are Mondays and, unfortunately, I work. I'll see what I can do, though. Maybe I can get off.

    Actually those dates are from last year. That's why they are on Mondays this year. I'm still up for it if we can get a few people together. There was an Erie meetup, maybe we can get a few of those people to come down and join us.

    Oh, duh! I didn't even see that. Anyway, I'd be down for attending if we have one here.

    I'd love to meet up... at least on weekends. I travel way too much for work to be able to commit to meeting other than weekend. Live in Bellevue - so very close to the city.

    I live in the south hills and work in Sewickley, so I'm pretty close to you over there in Bellevue.

    Very familiar w/ Sewickley. Have several friends there and my daughter will be starting kindergarden at St. James there. Pittsburgh's great for urban shots - particularly with all the different ethnic neighborhoods.

    I worked out in Center City on a project a few years ago. Except for that airport, it's a very nice city.
