Is there interest? Suggestions?

I've been looking for GTGs in my area...I'll be watching this develop. I'll be coming from the Peace Bridge in Fort Erie/Buffalo.

I would love a Toronto GTG. I travel there all the time for work and would enjoy a trip to meet fellow DPCers and shoot for fun and talk with people with the same interests. Sign me up.

I really thought there were more of us from Ontario??
08/27/2007 10:52:22 AM · #5
Ooh, I may be interested, when?
08/27/2007 10:58:00 AM · #6
I might be interested, depends on the where and when.
08/27/2007 11:36:14 AM · #7
I live in the GTA. I would be interested.

I am certainly open for suggestions as for where and when. Since we will want to have something of interest to shoot, I would suggest maybe Center Island? Does anyone else have any ideas?

What would you like to do at such a get together? (I have never been to one before)

As an FYI - I would come in from Buffalo, NY (actually south of Buffalo, but you get the idea for bridge crossing). Toronto seems reasonable for a day trip for me and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Townley and we would consider an overnight to take advantage of the GTG if it was a weekend, like a Saturday to Sunday.

I'm a GTG virgin too...last half of October or early November, maybe? And anyone mind that I don't have a DSLR? I'd hate to be the only one with a P&S.

I'm in depending where and when. Don't worry about the DSLR thing, just bring what ya got and have fun.

I'll have my hubby and trio of munchkins with me - so I can only do someplace that is very family (read that as : child) friendly.
08/28/2007 02:37:18 PM · #13
How long are most GTGs....a day? Two? I have a brother in TO so I can do a late week / weekend thing. I can see kashi's point on child -friendliness, good idea overall, but maybe also have other locales to go to (maybe around kids' bedtimes?) Also think in terms of logistics, ie if people are driving, is there a place to park? Public transit?
08/28/2007 02:41:30 PM · #14
I would only go for an afternoon, maybe a full day - but I only live about an hour outside of Toronto.
08/28/2007 02:44:16 PM · #15
i might be into this. the first half of september is a write-off for me though.
(up to 16th)
08/28/2007 03:35:53 PM · #16
Yeah - pretty much all of September is out for me, as I'm moving mid-month.
08/29/2007 08:09:41 AM · #17
Count me in. I would like shoot the fall leaves / moving water. Maybe an overnight somewhere (Sat Eve / Sun Morn).

I would possibly go on a weekend, it's only about a 4 hour drive and we have friends that live nearby. I'd love to meet Joey Lawrence, ask him to go, too.

I think Fall leaves start to change color near the 2nd half of September. Not exactly sure about Toronto.
08/29/2007 10:07:21 AM · #19
Hey Guys..I'd be down for a GTG..but I gotta say..We Toronto DPCers seem to be unable to get it together..last GTG we had there were only 4 of us!! So we need someone to wrangle us all and make it work!

It seems like some new names here showing interest so thats cool...
The Islands are a GREAT suggestion..love it...count me in
09/03/2007 10:48:54 AM · #20
I would be interested in this as well. I live in Mississauga, and wouldnt mind anything in Southern ON.

Anyone thought of any good dates/weekends?

The fall colours are going to be turning in about 5-6 weeks, and that might provide us some good opportunities.

Canadian Thanksgiving???
09/03/2007 11:11:01 AM · #21
i'm hoping to be up the thanksgiving weekend - it's a friend's wedding.
09/04/2007 05:25:57 PM · #22
Sounds like we are homing in on the thanksgiving weekend (Sat Oct 6th and/or Sun Oct7th).

Do people have ideas on where to go / do / shoot ?
09/05/2007 12:18:57 PM · #23
No more interest?

What about the weekend of Sept 27 to 30? The Markham Fair is on and offers a wide range to shooing options. They even have a beer tent!

Here are some photos from previous fairs
09/05/2007 01:08:00 PM · #24
Just let me know whats what and when and I should be able to make it.
09/05/2007 06:36:04 PM · #25
Thanksgiving weekend sounds best for me.
