Upcoming Field Trips

    • Tuesday, January 30, 2018
    • 2:00 PM - 7:00 PM
    • Village of the Arts and Bradenton Riverwalk

    Across the river from my home is the Bradenton Riverwalk where you can walk, jog, bike or skate. On weekends and evenings it can be quite busy especially when they have food and music festivals. My favorite time to come here is the morning just as the sun is rising. Because it's such a heroic effort for me I'm always surprised at how many people get up and out early for a jog or walk. This was taken right next to an empty skateboard park early one morning a few weeks back.

    Monthly Field Trip – Tues. Jan.30, 2018

    On Tues Jan.30, 2018 we will be taking our first field trip of the year to photograph the The Village of the Arts and the Bradenton Riverwalk.  We will be on the Riverwalk for the sunset. Hope you will be able to join us.

    We will meet at the Lakewood Ranch Town Hall at 2:00 to sign release forms and set up car pools, leaving promptly at 2:15.  Please confirm that we are meeting at LWR Town Hall prior to our field trip by checking your email for changes to original meeting place.  At our December field trip, our members preferred to meet at the location instead of the town hall.  We will always send out emails two days before our event to confirm how many will be coming as well as dinner reservations.  If after we receive responses back from that email, the meeting location may change from the LWR Town Hall.

    We will park on the streets at the Village of the Arts and as close as possible to the mural on the corner of 9th Street W and 13th Ave. W.  (Note** "Avenues" run East & West and "Streets" run North & South.)  Park on the West side of 9th St. W and inside the perimeter between 15th Ave. W and 10th Ave. W.  Please refer to map for the Village of the Arts.

    We will stay at the Village of the Arts until 4:00pm then we will drive to the Bradenton Riverwalk.  Please follow the attached map for designated free parking. We will meet at the Riverwalk Gateway.  It will be about a 5 minute drive to the Riverwalk.  Sunset will be at 6:10pm.

    We will meet for dinner after at Pier 22. If you would like to attend the field trip either register on line and/or stop by the field trip table for more information at our monthly meeting January 17th at 6:30pm at Grace Community Church.     Field trips are for members only.

    Sarasota Polo Gounds

    We will be gathering at the Sarasota Polo Grounds for a mid day of action photography and a pot luck lunch.  This event is one of the most popular field trips of the year! Everyone brings a dish to share, chairs to sit in and a tripod.  We do need several people to meet at the LWR Town Hall at 9:30 am so we can drive our cars in a row to the polo grounds to reserve a large enough spot for the rest of the members to gather and nibble on the goodies. We get to see the horses up close and personal when they gallop by so prepare for a exciting time at the polo games! More details to follow!

    You are able to sign up on line and/or at the monthly meeting on February 21st at 6:30pm at Grace Community Church. You must be a member to participate in Field Trip Events.
