    sooo hot. sooo crowded. ( I loved our Jackson Heights excursion way more.) Very quickly we got separated from the group and then hung out in the staging area ($10.00) on a shady stoop. That was excellent. Yet, the day brought me to a famous event that I would never have seen on my own. Thanks for organizing, Gus.

    Kevin: Since Gus, our leader, now has to take care of something on Saturday morning (if you didn't receive the email: http://www.meetup.com/NYC-Photo-Outings/messages/boards/thread/24487732), I was hoping he could still join us later without missing the parade.

    Annie - I'll meet at Coney Island too.

    We're going early because there's lots of photo ops while the event is being set up, people are getting dolled up, etc.

    Emily B: Your camera should be fine; the forecast calls for a high of 87 F., which is well within the operating range for a 5D III. I wouldn't recommend leaving your camera in direct sunlight for several hours though (black finish absorbs heat).

    Gus:

    The parade doesn't start until 2 p.m., so I'm not sure why we're meeting so early:

    Maybe you can join us if we set a later starting time?

    Looking forward to tomorrow. Any personal tips on protecting the camera in the heat? (I use a Canon EOS 5D Mark III, with a 24-70mm lens).

    Well, I'll be there. Registered to be in the parade. Best way to get some good shots!

    The $1 covers the cost of having the group listed on MeetUp. I ask for a nominal fee of $1 for ever meet up simply to cover the annual fee that MeetUp charges to have the group listed.

    Why is there a price of $1.00?
