Lets go to the Rodeo

This weekends forecast is for rain, so the Swallow Falls trip has been postponed. In its place, one of our members, Maureen suggested next weekends Professional Bull Riding and Barrel Racing coming to Frying Pan Park in Herndon, VA. The event runs two days. I'm planning for us to go on day two, Sunday, April 29th from 2-4 PM. Meeting at the arena gate. Cost per adult: $22.00 advance purchase. Visit the Fairfax County Parks website for purchase.
Also, some members have expressed an interest breaking away from the program mode of their camera. If some of you would like to arrive at noon to work on understanding how to control ISO, shutter speed, and aperture, email me and we'll work that out.

    I want to thank everyone for getting the word out about this rodeo. I wasn't sure if I was going to make it but I'm happy that I did as covering a rodeo has been many years. It gave me great opportunity to add to my ongoing project on horses and cowboys. The images I'm sharing is called "Leather, Boots & Hats" Thanks everyone else for sharing... I had a great time!

    Hey guys, I apologize for being anti-social. I was at the event, but I really liked my spot in the far corner from you and had to dodge out right at 4. I'll post some of my pics a little later today.

    Although I can't make it this year I tried last year but couldn't get in. If you haven't bought a ticket ahead of time get there EARLY. This sells out and is packed.

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.
