2005 was a great first year for the group. We held a total of 6 gatherings, each at a different member's house.
We held our initial gathering on Saturday, April 30, 2005 at Leigh and Keith's house in Rochester. Jim gave a corpsing demonstration, and I think someone gave an airbrushing demonstration (sorry, I had to leave before these took place, so I didn't get the details). Katy also gave a presentation on turning foam insulation into stone and brick. Several members took pictures during the event:
We held our second gathering on Sunday, May 29, 2005 at Katy and Alan's house in Liverpool. Mark gave a talk about using PIC microcontrolllers, while Bogie talked about wiring up LEDs. Katy also repeated her foam-insulation-to-stone presentation for Mark's benefit, since he missed it last time. Here are some pictures from the event:
Our third gathering was on Saturday, June 25, 2005 at Mark and Susan's house in Rochester. Here are some pictures from the event:
We held our fourth gathering on Saturday, August 20, 2005 at Bogie's house in Hamburg. Here are some pictures from the event:
Our fifth gathering was on Saturday, September 15, 2005 at Jim's house and later at Jim's haunt, Dark Raven Manor, in Clarence, NY. First, we went through the haunt like any other patron. Then, we went backstage to watch the camera monitors as the other patrons went through. After closing, we got a lights-on tour so that we could see how everything works. It was a very informative experience. Everyone in attendence thoroughly enjoyed it. Karl took some great pictures while we were there.
We held our sixth gathering on Saturday, December 10, 2005 at Karl's house in Collins, NY. Karl gave a talk about how to photograph your haunt. Alas, no one has posted that any pictures were taken at the event.
