Head to the coast for sunset, or possibly foggy, evening and night shooting at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. After that we'll check out the local fire dancers.
Sunset is at 7:44 pm. We will meet at 6:45pm.
The event will end at approximately 10:00 PM.

If you know you won't be able to attend, please change your RSVP immediately so another member can.
If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice, you will be considered a No Show. No Shows will be penalized per this group's No Show policy.
Attendance for this event is limited to 33. A lottery will be held on August 15 and selection preference will be given to supporters/donors. Those selected will be notified within 2 days. A waiting list is available in the event of a cancellation. If there is a cancellation, Meetup automatically notifies the next eligible person on the wait list. If you're that person and unable to attend, please change your RSVP to NO right away or the dreaded No Show policy will apply.
When you sign up, you'll need to answer a question before you're done. If you don't answer the question, you will not be eligible for the lottery or to attend.

What to bring:
A shutter release cable or intervalometer (not mandatory, but makes life easier for long exposures)
Spare batteries and memory cards
ND filter might be useful
Vibration Reduction/Image Stabilization lenses if you have them, for low light shots on the Boardwalk
The usual variety of lenses plus any special kinds could all be useful at these venues, particularly the Boardwalk
Red light (or flash light that can be switched to red light) (optional)
Dress warmly and in layers, hat, gloves - we'll be right on the water and may have fog so it may be cold
We will reschedule in the event of rain. We will continue if it is foggy or fog-sprinkling.
