Today's Count

Looks like we are about 30 so far, if my list on page one of this thread is accurate.

I've been gathering them up from roadfly posts also.
everyone seems quite ready for a great weekend.

There seem to be a lot of us coupers going. Great!

Check to see if I have your name on the post. Also if I duplicated it, since some of us have two ID's.

Bob, you have both me (M-Bark) and DannO on the list twice. There were about 27 coupes last year, by my count, so it looks like we'll beat that with 28 this year!

Coupe Group schedule?

I'm trying to plan my social events for the HC weekend

Any word on when the coupe group photo shoot is going to be? Are we going to drive en masse to the Saturday dinner again?

We all should plan on when and where to meet before the weekend gets too far gone and before the photo. I think everyone liked the coupe convoy to the dinner. I'm sure that will be on the table. Gettinfg excited!

Who was talking to the photographer? Kenn Sparks wants me to call him with more details once I'm in SC. He gave us the OK for the Zentrum but we still don't know exactly when the photo will be. Time is drawing near.....

I asked for a schedule for the photo from Crabtree productions. I have contacted them via e-mail at crabtree@mac.com Jay and Mark

Just so you all know...

during the group photo, I believe I got individual shots of each of your cars with the Canon EOS-10D. If I missed anyone, I apologize in advance. I don't know what I was thinking bringing the 28-80mm lens and the 70-300mm... I should've left the latter at home and brought the wide angle lens, I have only taken a handful of pictures with the 70-300mm.

They'll all be up on my web site sometime after HC, and I'll post a URL after they're up. They'll all be 3072x2048 (native resolution). Due to the weather, and not yet seeing them on my big monitor, I suspect some are going to have exposure and glare issues, but none should be so bad as to be untweakable w/ Photoshop or gimp or whatever you happen to use for tweaking digital photos. I can't volunteer to tweak all of them myself, I just don't have the time. I could've taken a lot more shots to be sure everyone got a good one, if it hadn't been for the timing (I had a tech tent appt. and was almost out of space on the CF card that was in my camera, with no time to run back to my car and then back to the group photo... it was way too hot today to cart a full camera bag with me all day).

Anyway, just supplementary pics for your (and my) enjoyment.

Glad you could make it Daniel, you're a value-added asset to the people on this board/at Homecoming!

Got mine!!

Got my prints today (wow, that was fast!!). The picture turned out very good. I am still unsure if I like the funky angles he placed some coupes. The good news is that there is no stoopid 'Crabtree' signature across the center of the print, as was the case in the past Homecoming 'big pics'. A big thanks to everyone for getting this put together.

Ditto. Got mine and have been looking at it for the last few hours. I'm mental like that. Now unlike last year, I really want to get this one framed. Andy/Jon, how about you whip one up in Imola Red leather

Seriously though, it's always good to see you two.

WHOA!
Damn, that was a quick turnaround.

I got mine yesterday and all I can say is WOW!
This one is getting framed and going into my office.

Thumbs up on group frame buy.
If anyone knows of a hook-up, count me in.

Mom still dresses us alike.. how embarassing!

It is a really great picture! I would have been seriously kicking myself if I hadn't bought one.

Is it time to go again?
