    I'm not liking to have to back out, but kids' schedules dictate...

    Sorry, but I am way out of town.

    So, Gary, since you're meeting for breakfast at 8:00, you're in Columbus around.... 10:00? Is that the plan?

    This event actually starts on Friday morning if you would like to go and beat the crowd. Get up early and head west against the work traffic. Leave a message if you're interested in meeting Friday and we can caravan.

    This sounds like fun. Definitely not in my portfolio (yet).

    I received an email confirmation of my RSVP. Included in the email is a link to a map that purportedly shows the location of the THSS event on the Brune Ranch. I checked it out just for grins, and it shows the event to be about half way between San Angelo and Abilene - nowhere near the location shown in the map above. If the map in the email is correct, we are going to have to leave on Thursday. :-) I'm sure hoping the map referenced above is the right one.

    I will go on Sunday. I'm shooting the Color Run on Saturday.

    I would be very interested in meeting Friday. In fact, I would much rather do it on Friday than Saturday. I'm not sure about getting up before breakfast but I guess I can make the sacrifice this one time.

      Feel free to head up on your own. The event starts at 8:30 and goes until about 2. If we get any more response regarding Friday, we will look at setting up another day.

      February 3, 2013

    • Stan & Carolyn B.

      I'm going to do that. I'm retired so I don't have to worry about taking time off from work. If anyone else wants to go on Friday, I would be glad to meet up somewhere and make a day of it. I'm looking forward to getting some shots of these guys before they have a bunch of bullet holes in them.
