Colin Hudson and I were taking some of our Passport Safety Training classes yesterday, and he asked me to post (on his behalf) an invitation to host the next Steadicam Guild gathering at his house for a BBQ. He's got a great house with a nice spacious backyard and deck.

We didn't discuss the nitty gritty details, but perhaps people could bring some beer or wine or other refreshments, and those who wish to contribute towards the BBQ foods are welcome to.

This could be a nice change from the commercial establishment locations now that the weather is getting so nice.

He lives very close to the junction of the I-405 & the I-10, so it's pretty convenient to get to from most parts of town.

David & Dan, what do you think? We just need to settle on a date if you guys (and the majority of everyone else) like the idea.

Colin didn't post this himself because he is without an internet connection for the moment.

BBQ it is!

I just talked to Dan and we agreed, if it's possible, mid May would be good because our Cinegear gathering is on the weekend of the 11th/12th of June. (a full month later)

We'll leave it up to Colin, though, to come up with an exact date that fits around his schedule.

Thanks for the offer Colin!

Okay, just got off the phone with Colin, and he said that it would have to be Saturday the 22nd of May, since he'll be out of town until May 17th. So if that's agreeable, then that's the date.

He suggested starting around 4:00 PM or 5:00 PM and going until....

More exact details such as his address, directions, etc. to follow a bit closer to the event.

As folks get an idea of whether or not they will be attending and how many people will be in their party, it would be great if we can get a sort of RSVP thing going so as to plan for enough beverages and food.

Since I seem to be the "middle man" for the planning of this event, you may email me through this forum, and I'll keep track of the number of people planning to attend. That way, I'll also be able to send each person an email closer to the day with the pertinent details.

David, if you would prefer to do the dirty work of keeping track of how many people, etc., I would be more than happy :) to turn it over to you ;)

Just let me know how you want to handle it.

It should be a fun one! I hope everyone who's in town and not working that day (or otherwise engaged) is able to make it.

Sounds like a good plan. I'm in. I'll even voluteer to flip burgers if needed. I'm not too shabby in front of an open flame....and I look cool emerging from a cloud of thick smoke with a plate of burgers in my hand (at least I think I do).

Anthony, I would love to take off a month off from organizing THANKS! ;)
I think emailing you through the forum is a super idea! I could also add your contact info to the guild web site. Might be easier for people to RSVP.
Let me know if this is ok with you..

No problem David...

I'll take on the organization for this one. Send the RSVP's my way folks...

Thanks!

Anthony

PS - If anyone thinks they'll bring any food items (either prepared foods or raw for the grill), please let me know when you RSVP. We'll probably get a bunch of burgers, dawgs and maybe some carne asada with some fixins from a great place I know, but any additional goodies people want to bring would be very welcome.

A quick update on the May BBQ for the Steadicam Guild LA to be held at Colin's Hudson's house.

The shoot he is going out of town for might push the week he is to go shoot to one week later. Right now it could go either way. If his shoot gets pushed, the BBQ will be held one week earlier:

Saturday, May 15th 4PM til ?

As soon as he knows, I'll be posting the definitive date... sorry for the potential change... but we all know how it is...

Keep checking back here...

The Steadicam Guild web site has a Calendar that appears in the main menu and I've included the BBQ event.

I'll update the calendar as soon as I see a definite date posted here.

Anthony, thanks for handling this months event! Very much appreciated!!!!!!

Any chance it could be made on the 29th instead of the 15th if the dates have to be switched?

Michael,

Since there is a meeting planned to coincide with Cinegear this year (mid-June), the request from David Grove and Dan Kneece was to try for mid-May. Initially it looked like Colin wasn't going to be able to do it on the 15th, so the following week was tentatively scheduled. Now it looks possible (though not certain yet) that the 15th will be okay.

In any case, due to the fact that Colin's schedule is the primary criterium, and the second is trying to space it approximately 1 month apart from the mid-June Cinegear planned gathering, I think it'll have to be either May 15th or May 22nd as per Colin's schedule.

The other factor is that the longer we postpone it, the greater the chance of a job booking for Colin coming down the pike to interfere with that date.

I'm sorry for such a long explaination. We'll know in a couple of days what the exact date will be. I'm also sorry for the uncertainty at this point. Finally, I am sorry if you or anyone else isn't able to make it due to conflicts. It's inevitable that some folks won't be able to make it... I know I've missed plenty of them due to work conflicts.

Anthony
PS - As an aside... I just finished my last Safetly Passport class this evening! Glad to get it over with.

Anthony,
I'm going to be taking the safety passport classes next week.
How are the classes? Seems like they would be fairly straight forward.

I know we get paid for taking these classes. Have you been paid yet? or does it take a while. The nice thing about the safety classes is that its roughly 2 miles from my apartment!.

Speaking of getting paid. Yesterday, I received a check in the mail from Entertainment Partners. It's a Holiday Pay check from a union TV show that I day played on. I guess I didn't realize that I was even eligible for Holiday payout since I haven't met my qualifying hours. Aaaaah, so much to learn.
The check wasn't all that much but it was still a check. It was a nice little surpise.

anthony- i'm of the opinion that even if colin is working that weekend, we should still be able to use his house. since i know how much colin likes a good party, we could take pictures and leave them posted in say, whatever room the captured activity occurred. that way when he walked around the house he could feel like he was there with us. what do you say? also, i have a pack of single, attractive women from the last movie i did, and since i have a fiance, should i bring the hard drinking, flirtatious lot of them for anyone else?
