GPG July outing:

This will be our last official outing for the season.

Where: Grand River Raceway. Trackside

When: Monday July 17 — 5:30 pm to 10 pm

It’s free to attend, and free parking.
Entrance is first-come-first-serve at the far east (left) gate or through The GrandWay front entrance.
Be there early because you’ll have to hustle for a good “at the fence” position. Bring your fav bug spray, you’ll need it!

Suggested gear: any camera, normal, kit lens, short to mid zoom lenses.
Tripods/monopods are allowed as long as they are set-up so that no one will trip & not in the area of the winner’s circle. Note that tripods and crowded areas can be a ticket to disaster, so be on your toes with this.

There are two, maybe three venues for eating:
The GrandWay Lounge — trackside casual bar and lounge. Enjoy racing, sports, and betting.
The Patio Party — For groups of 12+. Starting at $30 (+ HST) per person, you can enjoy a delicious meal and a private dining experience.
Casino Dining — Not yet open, this will be sit down dining I believe, and you will have to pre-book.

As usual, please RSVP, so that we know how many folks will be attending.
Looking forward to seeing you all for another great GPG photo walk. Sign up soon and let’s get this going.

BTW: There will also be one or two additional outings over the summer. Both will be during the week, one to Mono Cliffs Prov. Park, later in July, and the other if we can fit it in to Nottawasaga Bluffs Cons. Area. Stay tuned, more to come on both of these.


March GPG outing

Mark your calendars folks, there’s another photo outing coming up.

When: Saturday March 18 — 4 to 6 pm. This time-frame should allow for good late day light.
Where: more on that later
What: Street photography, ie: people in downtown Guelph. I believe this will be a first for the GPG, but with 40.9% of members indicating an interest in street photography, it should be a good turnout.
Cost: none.
