I'll be there this year! And hope to meet up with all the Wetpixel folks who are going!

Eric, I plan to have my Verizon card with me as well. Won't need to use it very often....

Same as last year I got Aquatica covering a round (Blake say's it should'nt be that expensive since Mike Veitch won't be there :blush: ) if it's half what it wat last year, it will be tons of fun. :blush:

I shall be at DEMA as usual. Please introduce yourself before you hit me! (It gets so confusing otherwise.)

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

What video? I thought it was a microwave oven!

(You would not believe I have directed films in Hollywood! Yes, it is true.)

I expect that I can contribute some fine Australian Wine to the cause, and can get TAKA DIVE AND assorted other boat operators to contrubute.

Hey, guys.

Does anyone have suggestions for where we should meet? I'm thinking we'll time it to coincide with the DEMA awards -- Friday night, November 10th.

A good number of people are only getting in on the 8th and 9th, so the evening of the 10th is probably our best bet to meet up.

I'm staying at the Rosen Centre Hotel just across the street from the convention center. Does anyone know if it has a proper bar? The website says that its lobby lounge bar is "ideal for both quiet conversation with friends and colleagues or for solitary time and personal reflection" -- definitely not what we want.

How about the Rosen Centre Hotel pool bar, 8pm, Friday the 10th?

That's probably as good a place as any, at least to start..... :)
Make sure everyone is clear that it is the Rosen Center and NOT the Rosen Plaza. They are similar hotels on either side of the convention center, the Plaza is a little closer.

Hi!

I've been enjoying Wet pixel since Eric invited me to check it out @ Dema (best tip in dismal Houston show).

I havn't participated as I've been a film luddite (aside from weighing in on salvage issue, once). Going to Dema to pu housing (finally!). Then I'll join the dialoge w/ gusto.

THanks,

Joe K

Sure would be nice if we had a way to identify each other. How about some sort of symbol we can add to our name badges?

I'll be there for a few days from the 9th. So the 10th sounds good to me to have a social.

Anyone want to start a little earlier than 8:00 pm for happy hour? I've got another dinner that night but sure would like to get together and see some familiar faces. Dave? Jean? Kathy? Any takers?

I think we could be there a little earlier. We can warm the place up a bit!
