Announcing a new Meetup for AZ Shutterbugs West!
What: 7th annual Dragon Boat Festival
When: Saturday, March 27,[masked]:00 AM
Tempe Town Lake
North Shore to be determined
Tempe, AZ 85283
This will be the 7th Annual Dragon Boat Race at Tempe Town Lake with all proceeds benefiting the Arizona Special Olympics. Since the AZDBA (Arizona Dragon Boat Assn.) is a 501c3 charity organization participation & proceeds will be tax deductible contribution.
We have an invitation to send in a proposal for next year's event to be the official photographers. This would entail photographing the event from shore as well as from the security boats as they follow the racers. After each race we would switch photographers & return to an area where we would download our images, print them and make them available for sale in a booth immediately. (I received this request too late to participate this year without any experience.) This could be an opportunity to participate in an event that would benefit a charitable organization. The chance for getting some publicity rises greatly when a "charity" becomes a benefactor.
Even if we are not able or interested in performing the above job, the event will have fantastic color, pageantry & enough excitement to make it an interesting outing.
