With Wes's car and my van we can take 9 comfortably...I can squeeze in an extra body if need be. I will be bringing 2 bikes so I currently have rack space for 2 others. I think most are renting so that should be enough? Make sure to remember yer shoes, pedals and helmets all. Also does anyone have a good 35mm camera with slow shutter speeds? Most pics shot tend to turn out really fuzzy but the 35slr's seem to take some nice shots. Who's gonna be the official B.F.S.S.F.G.F.C.V.P.?
Yeah, between eyefloater and me we'll likely have about 5 cameras of various sorts.

**** VELODROME PEOPLE: PLEASE READ AND EMAIL ME ****

I asked y'alls to send me a final confirmation email. send to wes@somnambulant.net (spam be damned).

So far the only people that I consider have confirmed at this point are: see this post

I have at least one extra person who would like to come along, so I want to get a final count to see if we have any extra space.

I have a fully manual 35mm SLR that i'll bring which anyone is free to use if you want to supply film. Has 50mm lens, no tripod. However.

Edit: I confirm somnambulant for Saturday.

That email address is evil!!

I can bring a tripod and let me check the freezer for film ...

Okay, I've got 35mm, 120 and 4"x5" (if anyone wants to bring their view camera).

Edit: Hahaha, I should bring the Holga and just duct tape it onto the bike. Actually, what am I thinking? They're going to take one look at us and tell us to get the **** out. I'm thinking handlebar cam might be a bit of a crap shoot but hopefully it goes well.

Second, it's 32flavoUrs. Brit spelling FTW! And thus is slightly distinguished from the song from which I ripped it off.

WTF! What happened to all the folks who confirmed earlier? So the list above, plus Operator..only makes 5 of us. I thought there was like 10 who wanted to go. I think Jammer already bowed out with a prior commitment...where are the rest of ya? Scared?

I am not stuck per say....just wondering why so many seem to be bailing. This has been planned for quite awhile now. Those who decide for whatever reason not to come will miss out....and when are we gonna be able to make it happen again? The more the merrier as far as I am concerned. I will start asking other people not on the list if they want to come along. Meeting at the Cavern....10 A.M. Sat.
