Annual Spring Shoot on the Virginia Eastern Shore

Discussion in 'Special Sessions, Events, and Tour Announcements' started by MParker, Jan 9, 2013.

  1. It's time to start planning for the annual spring shoot on the Virginia Eastern Shore. For those of you who might not know, there is a group of Cafers from the mid-Atlantic region that get together each spring and fall for a long weekend of photography on the southern end of the VA Eastern Shore. It involves sunrises, sunsets, landscapes, birds, wildlife, waterscapes, fun, and good food.

    This year I'm proposing that we meet in the usual place, Cape Charles, on April 11-14.

    Let's begin a list of those that are interested. If you are please post here or send me a PM.

    A draft proposal of some things we can see and do will follow in a few weeks.

    For new members and for those of you who have been to either of the two shoots in the past but did not join us in the Hudson Valley this past October, we have some news. That trip was so successful that we agreed, by acclamation, to replace the fall shoot in Cape Charles with a Huson River shoot each October. Stand by for news.

    I might be able to come, but if so, only for Saturday and Sunday... my April plans are still in flux. I'll let you know.

    I definitely want to go to CC this year. Basically my most enjoyable trip because of the friends I have made and who attend every year.

    My calendar looks clear, so I should be able to make it Fri-Sun. Looking forward to seeing the gang again!

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to make this one as I had hoped. Have fun!
     
  13. Can I bring my beagle (seriously) ?
     
  14. Some hotels allow dogs and some don't I think. I do not know about the rental houses in and around Cape Charles since I don't really know the owners of most of them. I'm guessing it would be OK.
     
  15. Has anyone considered renting a house? I would like to join in if you have. And, if dogs were allowed I would love to bring mine - a Cavalier King Charles. It is a small dog, about 20 pounds, and just loves people. If no dog allowed I will leave her at home - no big deal.
     
  16. I'd love to join, and see everyone again, and finally get my camera out for a dedicated photography weekend. I put it in my calendar, and plan on making it, with Seth. He may try to sail down there. Or we'll bring kayaks again.
    I think it would be fun to see dogs.

    Norm, I won't be there to rent it, but my usual house on Pine Street does in fact take pets. I can put you in touch with the owner - but I can't say if he'll give you as good a rate as he gives me. :wink:
     
  20. That is a great avatar. :biggrin: :tongue:
