    I am up over the damn. Staked out a great spot for shot reflecting off the water.

      Good to know, but my phone number is all over the internet anyway. I don't mind who has it. Maybe they will call by mistake and buy a house! :)

      P.S. I won't edit the attendance on this one because it's such a big event, and people could have been anywhere.

    I heard they are doing a good show at Oak Hollow Lake Park. I'm not sure were it is but can find it on GPS.

      Last year a few of us shot from what appeared to be an asphalt boat launch not far from the entrance. At least the tripods were on solid ground. We were there pretty early and did a lot of sitting but the view was great!

    There is also an event in downtown Greensboro. They usually try to set some kind of world record. I haven't heard what they're doing this year. Last year, they had the mos snare drummers in one place, I think.

    Hey everyone! Sorry I have been out of the loop! Very ruff week at work. Ginny and I are meeting at 4:45 at the Palladium parking lot were we meet for our monthly meetups and leaving at 5:00 to head to the park. I am going to call the park tomorrow and ask if we can bring coolers with food and drinks or if we have to purchase from them. We are planning on getting set up somewhere to the right of the stage and hopefully with view of the water for reflections. If anyone wants to meet us and follow us to the park make sure you are on time. Hope to see you all. I think this will be a Great place to shoot. I'll post tomorrow about food and drinks.

    At the Oak Hollow lake, it is going to be at the Festival park, 1841 Eastchester Drive.
    The gates open at 4.30 pm and the fireworks are at 9.45pm. There is a fee of $10 per car.

    Which do people prefer to do? Oak Hollow? Downtown Greensboro? I'm sure Downtown Winston-Salem has something.
