This is the text of a mail I got from Kelby on the 29th. (It has come to our attention that your published walk has less than 5 registered walkers. In order to Lead a walk, your walk must have at least 5 registered walkers.
Please promote your walk via Social Media or whatever other avenues you feel fit to try to obtain at least 5 walkers. if the walk does not have 5 registered walkers by Saturday, October 1, we will have to delete your Leader application from the website.
If you currently have less than 5 walkers, you can also choose to join another walk published in your location.
Decided not to lead a walk? Please let me know and I will remove your walk from the PhotoWalk website.)
At that stage I had 2 walkers registered on the site but I kinda knew what would occur. By Friday evening I had 7, and another two on Saturday morning. I also said in the local newspaper that all were welcome but only those that registered could enter Kelby's competition. Anyway, when I arrived to the start point at about 2:10 I had about 20 waiting there.
What put a bit of an exquisite squeeze on the thing was the local satellite tv asked if they could tag along with a cameraman and a reporter.
All in all it seemed people liked the idea and the walk. They could get a bit of information on this and that without feeling foolish. They could shoot whatever they wanted, in however they wanted, all I asked.
The end was a little disappointing, but not too bad. There was a re-play of a major football match and a lot of them went before the finish.
So all in all it was good.
Now I have to await their photos and choose the best. They get something for the winner. ANd that's uploaded to the main site. But that's a few weeks away.
Because I was trying to keep things going and watching that people weren't being left out I totally forgot to shoot the group. But the others did and here if you scroll through a bit you'll see the others and some of their shots.
