Outing Announcement: 11 April 2010 - Colorado Springs
« on: March 29, 2010, 09:29:55 PM »
Hi,
Keith and I and the kids are coming out to Colorado Springs to close on the sale of our home.  We will be there the weekend of April 10 - 11 and would love to get together with members to do a little photo outing.  We are thinking maybe Saturday, April 10th would work best, but we could switch to Sunday, April 11 if it looks like more could join us.  Our initial thought was to go to Garden of the Gods as it is convenient to get to and always provides for some excellent photography.  However, we are definitely open to suggestions of other areas to shoot.   We are thinking we'd meet at 7am (better light) and shoot all morning and then head to luch with whomever wants to go.

Please reply to this thread if you are interested and tell us if that Saturday (April 10) or Sunday (April 11) works better for you.  Also, please suggest a shooting location or indicate if Gardens of the Gods would work for you.
 
Looking forward to seeing you again!  We sure enjoyed the pizza party on our last visit.

Rebecca, Keith, Evan and McKenzie

Hi Keith and Rebecca, I think it is a great idea. Sue and I would not be able to make it on April 10th because of the Photoshop class we are taking but Sunday April 11th would work if you choose that date. Let us know if th 11th works for you. Rick

The 11th works for us.  So, let's meet at Garden of the Gods at 7:00 am --that first main parking lot inside of the Garden at the base of Kissing Camels Rock.  (Not the visitor's Center - but the parking lot you get to first when you drive into the park from 30th street and go to the right (North)--does that make sense?  

Hope others can also join us on Sunday, May 11th at 7am.

Please post if you are going to join us.

We'll be there.  This is sad that the house sold.  It means you won't have a good reason to visit us any more!  If you are not doing anything Sat night for dinner, let us know.  You could come over to our house or we could meet somewhere easy.  Just let us know.

Hi Sue and Rick,
We will definitely still be coming to Colorado Springs - it is in route to our Crested Butte workshop this summer, so we'll probably spend a couple nights there before we head out to Crested Butte.  We'll keep you posted when we are in town.

We'd love to get together with you for dinner on Saturday night, thank you.    We are thinking of riding the train through the Royal Gorge that day (but will be done by 3pm), so anytime and anywhere will work for us that evening.   It is so fun to be going to Colorado Springs on a true vacation with little 'work' to be done on the house etc.   Just let us know what will work for you.

Rebecca

Let's keep it nice and simple especially since you will have been out all day.  We can do pizza again or eat anywhere else.  When you get into town, give us a call and we can schedule.

Thanks Rick, Sue, Casey and Cindy.  We had a wonderful time at Garden of the Gods and brunch.  I'm looking forward to another outing when we get back to Colorado.

Keith
