Kiss The Clouds

**RSVPs OPEN MONDAY, DECEMBER 09, 8a**

We have a very unique opportunity to take our cameras 420 feet into the air, to the top of 201 Portage Avenue...the tallest building in Winnipeg! That's the one right at the corner of Portage and Main...

This is normally not something that's allowed, but they are making an exception for our group.  This is NOT for you if you are afraid of heights!  Also, our time at the top is VERY limited so if you aren't super proficient with your camera (settings, etc) this may not be the ideal meetup for you as well.  THIS IS A TUESDAY DURING WORK HOURS as well.  PLEASE BE POSITIVE OF YOUR AVAILABILITY BEFORE RSVPing!  We are very limited to the amount of people who are able to attend!

Here's the plan as we see it in our heads:
-3:45p SHARP - Meet at the security desk to collect meetup fees and sign waivers
-4:00p - Head up to the top and take our photos.  WE HAVE 20 MINUTES MAX  Do what you need to do ahead of time to ensure you have optimal photography time!  Hopefully we'll get some great sunlight over the city as it starts to set!
-4:30p (at the latest) - Back down to solid earth.  Kiss it if you have to.

      Sometimes you gotta work within the parameters that you're offered. And remember, you're always free to CHOOSE which meetups you want to go to!

    I've had to back out... so the next person on the waiting list can go :) Hopefully I've given enough notice this time. My life is kinda regularly in upheaval and I feel bad that I've had to cancel last minute on too many Snap Happy events. So, I will bow out of Snap Happy for the time being until such a time I feel I can commit. I like to be dependable, and so far I have not been able to be so with this group. Sorry Holly and Roxane for the inconveniences. You can cancel my membership. Best of photographic luck to you all!

      I would definitely want to attend the second round! I am checking every day for an open spot

    I was wondering how close we could get to the edge of the roof. Then I realized I could probably see the roof top in the Satellite View of Google Maps! Look like there is a short wall going around the entire roof top, so we can get right to the very edge and look straight down! (See posted photo) Yippee! But we likely can't sit on the wall and dangle our feet over the edge for a photo.

    Unfortunately a second run isn't available at this point. Perhaps in the new year? No promises.

    Is this outside on the very top or the top floor inside? Need clarification to dress properly.

    December 11, 2013

    • Arthur

      Since you usually don't need to sign waivers to go inside the top floor of a building, I'm going to say: "dress warmly!"

    • Holly T.

      Hi Brad...as you are currently on the wait list and not the actual RSVP list, I wouldn't worry too much about it unless you get a spot.

      December 11, 2013

  • Edwin Y.

    I hope there will be a spot for me!

    Any chance of extending the end time for a couple of extra hours? It would be great to shoot from up there after dark.

    November 29, 2013

    • Holly T.

      Nope. The 20 minutes is set by the building manager. Technically they don't allow anybody up there unless it's for mechanical reasons, etcetera.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
