US Marine 12th Annual Family Day BBQ

Camp Pendleton South

Members of our So-Cal-Photo-Walkers group have been the event photographers supporting the Mariners Church "Military Ministry" in Irvine for the adopted "Dark Horse" 3/5 Battalion comprised of over 1,000 Marines, Sailors and their families garrisoned at Camp Pendleton. This event is the 12th Annual Family Day BBQ. COVID-19 has, of course, altered the way this event can occur. 1st, the event will NOT be held at Mariners Church, it will be on the base at Camp Pendleton. 2nd, there will two separate Family Day events at the same time. One is for the family members and one is for the single Marines and Sailors. The family members will “drive through” the event on the nearby Area 62 Parade Deck. The single Marines and Sailors will walk through the event in a area near their barracks. Looking for 2 photographers with the families and 2 with the single Marines. 3rd, there are NO formal portraits, this will be a LIVE EVENT photo shoot. Roving the event. Also, the family's and single Marines events will be about 1000 feet apart. The families will drive through a course on the parade field that has in the car games for the children, like a scavenger hunt etc. There will be no congregating and social distancing and strict hygiene rules will apply. The event’s official time is 4 – 7pm. I would ask that any or all volunteers arrive around 2:30pm to begin documenting the setup and logistics of this very unique event. As always, the images we capture will be posted online so the troops and family's will be able to download and enjoy. It goes without saying that this is an opportunity to give back and assist these soldiers and their families that silently give so much to us. It also goes without saying that this is an opportunity for experience in shooting a large event for your portfolio, or just to raise your level of skills. PS: Please only RSVP if you will attend. If then you find you are unexpectedly unable, cancel your RSVP so any on the wait list can fill the spot. IMPORTANT: When you RSVP, I will need your name, phone number and email address. I will submit to John Calabrese, who is the director of the event. He will supply directions to the event areas and base access. I would like to get our volunteer photographers identified by Wednesday, August 12th. If you plan to volunteer, would be great to RSVP by then. Thank You as always! NOTE: I am unable to attend the event on this date but will coordinate as we proceed. Barnet
