Any day of the week for me. For what we want to do, decent weather is of the essence so our planning should be a bit flexible. Could we pick one week and decide on the day later, close to the date, depending on the weather forecast?

What about the 3rd week of November (15-21;but not on Thursday for me) and/or the 4th week (22-28;but not on Friday for me)?

If the date is suitable I am willing to join. Tuesday and Wednesday are structurally blocked. Some other days are already taken, but after 9th of December I have plenty space. (and I have a 70-300)

Going to the zoo is always fine by me. I pity my back as this will mean Takumar 300/4, Telemegor 400/5.6 and FE 200-600 unless I increase my arsenal with a mirror lens (always fancied the Minolta RF 250 but that is mighty expensive and would not qualify, so perhaps a Russian 300 or a Mino 500).

I have some holidays left so basically I'm flexible.

No Fred, still undecided.

Got me a Minolta Rokkor RF 500mm 1:8 in stead. Will sit nicely next to the RF 250.

And when are we going to use these beauties? Can we decide on a week/date?

OK, it's not going to be easy to plan this

- We need good weather and flexibility needed to select a day with good weather
- Have some lead time (especially during the week) to plan a day off for the workers among us.
- My availability in november is rather limited due to all kind of other commitments

So let's throw out something

My first choice is 13 or 14 november (sat/sun), weather forecast for those days looks splendid, full sunshine but a bit cold (5 - 10 C). Let's see who is available then.

Other days with reasonable weather, but much more cloudy would be 10 and 12 november (wed/fri), maybe not the best for our "non-pensionados". Let me know what you think.


Next dates I am available in november are 28 and 29 (sun/mon), no weatherforecast available yet.

But in case there is strong preference for other dates I don't mind too much, I live close to the zoo and can always go there another time.

I think moving to december is also possible, but the chances for good weather are probably lower than november.

13 , 14 and 28 (teh weekends) are fine for me but 10, 12 and 29 are showing a full agenda at work, so no option to take these days day off.

Another thought: Is Antwerp a given? I can do that, but could eg. Blijdorp in Rotterdam be an option too? This might be a bit more centrally located depending on the participants of course.

Just my two cents. And I just had two great DM's, so don't let me be the bottleneck.

Concentrating on the weekends, 13 and 14 are ok for me; 28 is fine too. I share Pieter's idea about December, always a busy month too!

To me Antwerp is more attractive because Antwerp Central Station is around the corner (or v.v.), always nice for a few shots and I would love to explore the tunnel that was built under the 'cathedral' at the turn of the century.
