My flight arrives at noon on Friday, so I'll be hangin' out at the hotel. Greg's been boasting about his superior grillin' skills. I think we should hang out at his place Friday evening and see just how good he really is.

I'd be willing to pitch in for some steaks.......

Hey guys, I'm not going to make it. I live just east of St. Louis and we had a nasty storm come through here today. Took down power lines, trees, etc, etc. I'm just getting back up and going here on neighbors generator. Surprised that I still have cable modem. I'll post some pics, wish I had an AP heli up and going. The designs out in the cornfield probably look interesting from up in the air.

I dunno about the other guys, but I've been having fun. Had a storm rip through yesterday at lunch, gave us a good excuse to go eat BBQ. We're about to head out and fly for a bit.

Greg did an AWESOME job with the seminar. Greg covered several topics in photoshop that will help take my images not only to the next level, but 2 or 3 levels above that. I've never heard of chromatic abberation. Now I know what it is (so that's what that is in some of my photos!) and also how to fix it!

If you've ever wished you could hang with a professional and learn his secrets, this was the opportunity. Greg's infectious enthusiasm has got me PUMPED UP FOR AP!!!!!!!!!

Bill Meador was out in the parking lot tuning a gasser while Mike was shooting photos with his E-Raptor. Sweet. The other hotel guests look at us kinda funny now.

Greg and his lovely wife Tina provided us with First Class hospitality. And yes, Greg can grill steaks with the best of em.

Greg's electric hover disc was a hoot. Then he put glow wire on it and we spent the evening flying it around his front yard in the dark. A lot more details and some video will be forthcoming in the next few days when we all get home.

Later,
Mark

Wow

Talk about information overload! I've got soooooo many neat tricks stuffed into my brain from Greg's presentations that I'll be 80 years old before I use them all! (and no I won't be 80 for a few more years)

Greg went to his usual " all out" professional effort on this clinic with conference rooms, projectors, printed hand-outs and lots of picture tweaking techniques. And that was just Saturday morning!

He and Tina and his daughters treated us like royalty as they hosted us in there home Friday and Saturday evenings. We got to see all his neat "toys" and entertained ourselves (and his neighbors) by flying his RC hoverdisk up, down and across the street. You'll have to ask Mike Robinett how he described that disk as it circled the lawn.

My buddy Bill Meador was here for most of Sat and helped me tweak my gasser and diagnose a clutch problem. Bill is also well on his way to obtaing his Doctorate Degree in Photoshop!

It was great to meet and hangout with Mark and Mike. Everyone brought ideas and knowledge to the table. We all got to share war stories over beer and pizza and steak and BBQ ( did I tell you we ate well). We discussed marketing techniques, job pricing, camera platforms (poles, planes, blimps etc), cameras and camera settings.

Now we're going flying (Sun AM) to cap off a great weekend.

Thanks Greg for all your efforts and hospitality!

Greg is just something else... The man is a walking computer... I learn so many little tricks about pictures, I don't think I will ever look at a picture the same again...The presentation was as if Canon, and Adobe hired Greg to do this

It was a Honor to meet Mark, and Mike... These guys are serious about A/P as well as Greg, and Tommy... Good job guys!

Greg has helped me a lot over the phone and email, although we've never met.

He's a walking encyclopedia in every topic, even outside of AP.

Too bad he's not in So. Cal., we'd be doing some 'crazy' AP things together.....Gorilla style!

Btw Greg,

Although I didn't attend, as a thank you, I'd like to send you as a gift....a new Panasonic PV-GS400 video camera. This is also for your recent help this past week

I hope this will help replacing your broken GS 150 or GS 250?

It's a gift for you and your wife, especially reading about your hospitality above.

I'll send it out Monday/Tuesday.

Thank you Greg and Tina!

Im on my way home from the most informative seminar on Photoshop and AP and business in general Ive ever been to (that includes Amway)
Greg presented an AP-specific course on Photoshop, showing us the elements that would help post production, I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and gained SO much knowledge, thank you so much Greg!

Thank you to RCAPA for a great lunch and for footing the conference room.

It was great meeting Mark and Tom and Bill. I learned alot from you guys too, thanks for sharing your experiences with me.
Taylor, I really wish you couldve made it, you wouldve enjoyed it.

Today we went to a local High school and did some AP and flew the hoverdisk, looks like a flying toilet seat with the glow wire at night!
Tom flew his gasser and got it up there while Greg and I watched the downlink and controlled the camera, I learned a couple of new tips on his setup, I think I had a couple of tips foe these guys.

Really, really enjoyed it!
You guys missed a good one, hopefully next time.
Mike
