    Hey all,

    I've run into several people on the forum lately that are in the Southeast Michigan area and I want to try to put together a monthly meetup! I figured we could do something along the lines of a monthly photo challenge and then get together the first Sunday of every month for lunch and to discuss and share the photos. I envisioned a place like Fridays in Ann Arbor as a pretty central location and it is close to I94. Let me know if anyone is interested! I'm also going to try to drum up some interest locally as well.

    -Mike

    Might work for me, I'm in Livonia. I do shoot on a lot of Sundays but it still might work.

    I am certainly interested! pm me when everything is set up, A2 is less than an hour from me so that would be great!

    It isn't dead there just hasn't been too much interest unfortunately. There are 4 of us now. I was actually rethinking this last Sunday and seeing how all the parking in Ann Arbor is free on Sundays we could do a meet at the top of one of the parking structures and do a meet and greet type thing, then head out for a tour of the town and do some shooting. Any other ideas? I would like to do this and we could always throw something up on the local craigslist and hope a few more locals show up. Give me a little more feedback and hopefully I can PM a set plan to all who are interested relatively soon!

    I would love to do a monthly meetup/photo challenge. The challenge could even be presented AT the meetup, and then we disperse to complete the challenge and regroup for goodbyes and drinks. Then at the next meetup, we share the photos and do another challenge.

    Sundays in A2 is a great idea. Parking can be so terrible sometimes. There are plenty of places in 2 to meet and photograph other than downtown, too.

    Is there any chance it could be done in lansing, so its kind of a middle ground for everybody, westerners and east. I'm in grand rapids.

    Looks like nobody's making a decision here, so I'll shoot - how about Thursday September 17th at 5pm in Ann Arbor? We can meet at the big spinning square by the Union on State St. If at least four people will go, then this date and time will stick. Otherwise, please give your input about dates and times and locations so we can get this started!
