So at least if I am ever in LA I'll have at least one decent social occasion. wonderful. Though the down side is I might be disapointed if there aren't at least half cinematographers there. I will still assume they're just keeping it mum either way.
You actually have three in this area of SoCal! The original LA Pipe Club meets about an hour North, in a town just East of Pasadena, and then the Orange County Pipe Club meets about an hour South in the land of citrus and Mickey Mouse.
