I just had a lightbulb go off over my head. How about a POTN swap meet in Central California early next year?

I was thinking that we could all meet somewhere in the middle and organize a swap meet photo event of our own. I wouldn't think we would need any permits since we would just be a group getting together to talk about camera gear. We would be able to meet up take some pictures get to know each other and maybe sell some gear we have laying around.

If there is any interest I'd be willing to help organize.

[Edit] Could a Mod add California to my title? Thanks in advance.

Where in No Cal are you? Perhaps a local camera store would sponsor the swap meet and provide a parking lot for it. Some of the stores in larger cities do these fairly often.

Sonoma County. I was thinking Central California so that we could have members from SoCal as well.

I know its not, but there isnt much in central Cali, unless you guys want to go shooting in Bakersfield or Fresno or something :rolleyes:.

If I were to attend something like this, id rather drive all the way up north, or have the northerner come all the way down, but meeting halfway at nowhere seems kind of pointless to me. Unless you guys know of a nice easy spot in central Cali?

Well, this swap meet thing wasnt my idea, but those are just my 2 cents.

Hey! I'm in central California, Gateway to the Sequioas. Just south of Fresno. Just don't come in the middle of summer.
Yosemite is out of Fresno. Central coast has places like Morro Bay.
We'er good for it all.


Bless the recently fallen and their family and friends.
I have a Cannon with me at all times. You can't take the shot if you don't have something with which to shoot. :rolleyes:

This sounds like an idea with some merit. I have plenty of 'stuff' that could probably use a new home (including a couple used-up credit cards). The Fresno area really is a good mid-point between NorCal and SoCal. I've heard they have all the amenities there including electricity and running water, too.

Hell, when did they add that? I hear it's still untamed wilderness. I would be game. Lets take this one step further and make it a convention, not only a swapmeet. Maybe we could have learning sessions, photo outings and the like with raging parties, I mean workshops in the evenings.

Good idea. Too bad it's so far from your pots and pans. You could cater it.

Of course I think Central Calif. is a GRAND place for a POTN swap meet. I would be happy to help plan & organize...... Skip and I have a pretty flexible schedule so PM me when you have something in mind, Solinger.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.
