GPG Sept outing

It’s short notice, but our season opening September outing will be a very exciting one this year, the plan is to go to the 2023 Binbrook Fair Rodeo on (next) Sunday Sept 17, noon till 6pm. Tickets are available ($9.81) on-line only and they are selling out fast. (Early Bird tickets are already sold out!).

The show is on from 10-6pm, our plan is to get there just before 12 noon, and to meet at the exit from the parking lot before heading into the main grandstand. You are welcome to leave whenever you feel it’s time, no need to stay till 6pm.

Their website is not very informative, but I have seen images from past rodeos, which are quite exciting. A map is on their website, and you must pay special attention to the parking and entrance instructions on their website.

Gear:  You are probably going to need a medium to long lens here, I’m not sure how close we can get to the action. Bring hats and sunscreen, the weather is promising to be sunny.

You will need to go to their website to purchase your own tickets ASAP.


Please let me know if you are planning on attending, so that we know who to expect, when we are waiting to rally the troops by the gate.

Let’s get our new season off to an exciting start. See you all there.


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.

Map is here:

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.
