    After a few brief chats on IRC the idea for a Cornwall / Devon meet was suggested. Ideally it would be early this year, and be when there is some kind of event on :) Possibly watersports? so maybe surfing / kite surfing.

    There are a few events in the diary that we could possibly attend, and they're mainly in Newquay or Perranporth.

    If anyone has any views then post away!


    (Though i assume this post will be on page 5 quite quickly :p)

    If I can find a quick way down there, instead of driving then I'll be there.

    Used to camping at Perranporth , very nice part of the country. Lots of scenic coastline and desolate tin mines. Would be interested in the meet depending on date etc.

    I would be more than likely 'in' for this
    surfing is not my cup-o-tea, but the photo aspect would greatly interest me

    Well, it's not on page 5 yet ;)

    Surfing was just an idea, if you have anything else you'd rather do then suggest it :)

    there's a lot around newquay to shoot, the zoo is nice, holywell bay (a couple of miles away) has potential for some nice seascapes, theres blue reef aquarium in newquay too, world in minature isn't too far away, paradise park (AFAIK) is around there, there is literally hundreds of things to do and shoot there :)

    Bah I don't think I could make it. 8hr train journey, 7hr car drive or a mid afternoon flight to Exeter then a 2hr drive to Newquay so I'd be there for like 6ish.

    Well that's a rubbish excuse :p You could always stay over with someone and drive from Exeter together?

    Indeed, as I am about 1.5km from the airport, there is always the option of the day before, and kipping here, the passengering with me to Newquay.
    Just an idea!

    I would be up for that. I live in Exeter (student) so it will have to be after the exams...But this will give me a chance to meet some people as well :D - been waiting for a meet down here, but I've not got the time to organise one :( otherwise i would have done by now.
