*As there was no countable reaction, neither in December 2015, nor when I posted this proposal in May 2016, I decided to cancel my preparation*

Anyone interested in some informal little thing ON FRIDAY, drop me a PM!
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Did I mention that the "Müllestumpe" lies in a little valley with a little castle and old growth trees with lots of songbirds?

OK. I talked to CJD and Muellestumpe.

Good news is we could do the barbecue with wild boar on a spit at Muellestumpe.

Bad news are much more:

1) Muellestumpe has only 7 bedrooms and two appartements and these are already booked for Saturday and Sunday. So if someone would stay there he/she would have to checkout on Saturday morning

2) CJD says we might habe a chance for Photokina 18, weekends in September and October are often sold 2 to 3 years in advance

What will I do now?

Search for other places, quite possible one that is still near Photokina, can accomodate 20 to 40 Nikongearheads, allows for Wild Boar Grilling etc.

I will call some people I know in the accomodation business... CU

I'd like to join you. No need for lodging arrangements for me - I'll stay with my family.

Cheers,

You can be pretty sure that accommodations near Cologne are booked for those working and visiting the Photokina...
