Yea and hooray!

Finally one of these things is on a Sunday. I usually put in 10-12 hrs of work on Sat and am usually too tired to do much shooting after.

Wow, didn't realize this was on a Sunday. I also work on Saturday and it really cuts into shooting time. This time hope to get group of other Pentax photographers and do Pentaxium right.
thanks

Absolutely- that wouldn't be a problem! Just make sure you link to the public announcement, as this one is only visible when logged in.
