Field Trip - "Fall Photography Gather"

Saturday Sept 27 (rain date: Sunday, Sept 28)

In partnership with Terry Adair and the Kingston Photo Nature Park we will be enjoying a day of photography and fellowship with our own members and invitees from a number of New Brunswick camera clubs.

Please contact us at ASAP so that we may give our host an idea of how many of us will be attending.

Schedule (more details below the break):
- Meet in Moncton to arrange carpooling (location and time to be announced)
- Arrival 9:00-9:30 a.m. (approx.). First shoot from then until lunchtime.
- Meeting back at the park for lunch.
- Afternoon shooting (timing and duration at your discretion)

Lots to do:
The concept for the day is to enjoy not only the natural beauty of the Photo Park, but also the many and varied shooting opportunities provided by the lovely Kingston Peninsula itself. We encourage all participants to select from the information below the subjects which interest them, and enjoy 1 or both of the AM and Afternoon shoots; either alone or in the company of others.

Maps will be available ($1.99) as well as individuals with extensive local knowledge to ensure that you have adequate directions and advice to make the most of the time we spend there.

The lack of defined structure for the day allows you to select what interests you and yet still have the opportunity to meet and hopefully enjoy the company of not only our members, but those from the other clubs as well.

Getting there:
- Maps will be provided at the muster point (location and time to be announced)
- Approx. 1-1/2 hours from Moncton
- 10 mins from the Gondola Point ferry (Quispamsis, NB)

In order to show our support of Terry and his efforts to build and add onto his Photography Nature Park, we will be collecting $5.00 –$10.00 from each participant. This will also go towards the expenses incurred in getting ready for us and having some of his friends on hand to assist us in finding the best spots to shoot the subjects which interest us the most

Meet back at the park for lunch. Either pack your own, or contact the park (info below) to reserve a lunch meal. (Note: Reservations for a meal should be booked as much in advance as possible and preferably by Sept 20th.)
