    hey- if anyone else is going to be out there - I will be there with my partner and our preschooler- I'll be wearing a red hat and carrying a Canon 40D - would love to meet any of the other photographers in the group so feel free to come up and say hi if you see me. We'll definitely be at the Joan statue- might make it in time to be at the St Louis Cathedral for the sword blessing...
