Outline of events is as follows: March 30, 2007 (beginning around 5pm or so): An informal gathering at our home for NikonCafe' members and their families. There will be lots of food and conversation. Commodore First (Wade) has also organized a very exciting door prize collection for all members who attend this meet-and-greet. March 31, 2007 (dawn): An early morning shoot at the UAH duckpond. Frank (Flew) will give everyone details about this shoot on Friday night. March 31, 2007 (9am): Gather at Huntsville Botanical Garden. Here you will find 112 acres of pristine flower gardens and walkways, herb gardens, water fountains and lily pads. You will also be in for a treat this time as you will be at the Garden when the 100 year old Dogwood is in bloom (this is a real treat...it is huge...and beautiful). Lunch will be catered at the Grisham Pavillion at the Garden at 12:30. March 31, 2007 (nightfall?): Campfire and S'mores the Sommer and her family on Green Mountain! This is a must!!! April 1, 2007 (dawn): Another early morning shoot at Guntersville Dam. This is the place to go if you want to see the Bald Eagles as well as tons of Great Blue Herons! Again, Frank will have the details for this on Friday night. April 1, 2007 (1pm): A hike on Green Mountain. It's a short hike and the pathways, for the most part, are paved. April 1, 2007 (after the hike): Harmony Park Animal Safari! There are a bunch of really cool animals there, in a free-range set-up. They will walk right up to you, and you can feed them right out of your hands. They have some excellent photo op's here. Some of the animals include zebras, alligators, a VERY FRIENDLY CAMEL, quite a few emus, a water buffalo and peacocks, just to name a few. Cost will be $5/person (admission at the entrance) with children under 2 free. April 1, 2007: Dinner at Royal China Buffet. Cost: $9.99/adult, $2.99/under age 4.
