We have been invited to attend this event put on by North Bay Smugs. This invitation is from their leader and founder of Cygnus Studios- Steve. Please send him an email if you are interested. If you are not interested or can not make the event, no need to email. The hotel has already been selected. If we get enough people, we can bunk together to save a bit of money.
At last nights meeting we discussed putting together an overnight trip to the gold country and staying in an old hotel built in the 1800's that may or may not be haunted.
The hotel has a photography package and has been used in many commercial campaigns over the years.
In order to get a really good deal including a photo package, we need to book a minimum of 5 rooms.
The rooms are filled with antique furniture and there are NO televisions or phones in the rooms. No internet either. It is basically a trip back to the gold rush days. There is a restaurant on site.
I have been told that the walls and are thin and live music on the weekends that can last well into the night, so sleeping may not come easy.
Before booking or scheduling such a trip, we need to gauge the interest of who is available and ready to go.
The cost would be $165 per person. This price will include room and taxes and a property photo release, plus some access to photograph some other areas of the hotel.
The possible dates for this trip are either Sat Nov 12th or Sat Nov 19th.
The 12th is the preferred date, but we might be able to make the 19th if that is available to more people.
If you interested in making this trip, please email me directly [address removed] and let me know which date you can make it.
Once we have at least 5 people who can go on either date (again preferably Nov 12th) another email will be sent to those interested with payment details. Everyone will have to make full payment via paypal or get the cash to me very soon, so the rooms can be booked.
The hotel is about 10 miles south of Jackson, Ca (about 2 1/2 hours east of Rohnert Park). Everyone would be responsible to getting there and any food/gifts or whatever else you want to spend money on while you are there.
The $165 fee covers hotel and photography package only. Once payment is made there are NO refunds, so please don't sign up and pay if you cannot make the trip.
