I have called and had numerous email exchanges with Ops and the City and County people over access to the hill and other areas. All of this taking place over a year's time. Numerous attempts, same response. Personally I don't think this is the right time to persue access, that hill isn't going anywhere. Tread lightly if your going to do this.

I think the most important factor is that whatever we do, we do it as a group. All photogs instead of one person asking may make a huge difference. I don't mind waiting until the level of risk is lowered.
All I'm saying is lets meet on sunday and discuss those issues. I'm sure we can agree on a plan. If later is better, so be it.

Im scheduled to land at DEN at 11:45 AM on Sunday, and I have to be back in my dorm at Boulder by 2:30 at the latest to catch the kickoff of the Eagles game, so that would mean that I'd have to leave the airport area around 1:30, so between 12-1:30 I would be free at the airport if that helps...

Denver at 10am sounds great. Now, which place should we meet up at? As for going as a group, we should definitely wait until the paranoia goes down a little bit and so does the alert level. We should also wait for Mark Abbott and others to join us... we should all go as a group. Oh yeah, and Airport Ops building is closed on Sunday anyway .
Looking forward to meeting you all again, Jeff, be there too. I still need to give you a copy of Photoshop CS, and that would be a good place to do that.
Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.

Denver Crew. I wiill be at Conoco in the morning at 10am. Finally get to meet Mr. Hisham. Will be a morning of good spotting, although until I get my 300D in a couple of weeks I will not be shooting any pics because lack of my B-300 converter, **tears running down my eye**.... Ahem, anyhow...

Aaron - As you know I also have the same camera as you (and almost every other photographer in DEN) and don't have the Teleconverter, the only thing I cannot do, is take pictures of narrowbodies on 35L

I want to thank everybody for showing up today! I wasn't expecting the meeting to be that successful. I think the Denver police deserve special thanks for their time and understanding specially under the current conditions.
I still can't believe the cops have a poster size photo of me in their car!! The last few weeks have been quite stressful for me but I don't regret my decision to do my photography with all the risk involved. I apologize if my presence has caused you any inconvenience in your spotting. Hopefully, we can reverse that soon.

I'll second what Hisham said. I was the "doubting Thomas" going into this, but maybe with a little luck this will work out. I was impressed at the overall level of interest generated today. I think at one time we had 4 police cars there with us.
I will email everyone when I get contacted by DPD or the guy from the FBI in regards to the first meeting. Things just might be looking up.
Now we just need to fill in Greg, Mark, Craig, and ?? Did I miss someone?

For those who weren't there,
Like Jeff said, we're waiting for a call from the DEN police regarding the meeting with ops and FBI. That should be within a week or two. Naturally, nothing is decided until then. Links to your photos will be needed. A few prints will also be helpful, have them ready before the meeting. Some other personal information may be needed but that will have to be negotiated among us and with the authorities.
Let us know if you're interested.
Craig was out of town. He's interested in joining us.
