Hi Guys and Gals,
We'll be doing our next Photo Walk on Saturday, August 23rd!
The location hasn't been locked in stone just yet (Detroit Riverwalk is currently on the table, but not definite):
Check out Scott's blog post and quick video on the event!
It's limited to 50 people per city, so sign up today!
Just a thought...
Combining the Riverwalk (if comfirmed, and since we'd be right in the vicinity)
with the Belle Isle Conservatory. There are some beautiful plants there.
I tried to sign up...but I don't think it went through. Said my "email was in use". Strange, I'm the only one that should be using it. Anyway, I can't see if I'm on the list.
Can you check? If I'm not, can you bust me out so I can try to register again? Thanks!
ok, where do we signup? how? thanks....

There was an update earlier, the server was

I had to email with a different email address, but I got in. Strange how my "personal" email address is being used...
There were issues with NAPP members being already in their system. If you're still having problems registering, send me an email and I will forward it to their web guy to get you in.
I'm not a NAPP member (yet?)...do I get a free membership for being in MacGroup!?
um, no. Nice try though.
How do you know if your registration was accepted?
They send you an email confirming it and asking you to click a link. This prevents auto-bots from registering. I had problems with them accepting my .mac email address but not with my Comcast one. Seems odd but it worked

"What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about?"
Site took my .Mac address and registered me right away...
BUT, that was before the servers went down.
Several weeks ago I completed and sent an Application for the Photowalk but have not received a confirmation.
Am I in or am I out?

I did not receive a confirmation email either. When I went back to the site a few days ago, Detroit did not show, so I assumed it was beyond the 50 and I was too late. A "sorry" email would have been nice though.
Bill and Jamie, I don't see your names on the roster. So technically you are not registered. However, we'll be in a public setting so there is nothing stopping you from joining us. Your shots just won't be entered into the contest. So come down and join us. It should be fun.
