Baltimore Area Summer Funk Meet & Greet... “Third Time’s A Charm”
the Avalon area of Patapsco State Park in Baltimore County...
Yet Again!  ;-)   Lets make this one EPIC!

ANOTHER FUN FILLED SUMMER FUNK!!!! Everything worked out with the alcohol permit and the day stayed breezy and relatively cool back in our woods despite the crazy heat everywhere else...... everyone seemed to have a blast again this year. learned some valuable lessons for next year! thanks everyone!


=============================================

Date: June 27, 2010

Time: 10am-ish until Dusk (after parties and pub crawls could occur afterwards).

Address: 5250 South St. Halethorpe, MD 21227

Cost: $15-ish donation to help with food and pavillion, etc...
    - Pre-pay with PayPal to: timp [at] charm [dot] net
    - Please add a note with your MM name/number and "SFMG" with your payment.
      so i know who you are...

Just like before, will have a large Pavillion as a home base and lots of woods, streams, waterfalls, stone structures, etc. if you want to shoot...

Map: Pavillion #66... - Ask at the gate for the free map of the area... that one will show parking pads... 

Here's a rough map of our area...

Directions:

From the Beltway (I-695) Take Rt. 1 (Exit 12-A) toward Elkridge. Follow Rt. 1 South about 3 miles to South St. Turn right. Park entrance is on the left.

From I -95 take I-195 to Rt. 1 (Exit 3) toward Elkridge to South St. Turn right. Park entrance is on the left.

From Howard County follow Rt. 1 through Elkridge and into Baltimore County. Turn left onto South St.

Park entrance is on the left.

   ---------------------

We are asking everyone to bring what they would like to drink and maybe some sort of desert or their favorite side dish... the plan is to have some meat and corn on the cob and such to grill up... if you have some preferences, post them. PLEASE, NO GLASSWARE!!! (ok, other than lenses ;-)

The day will most likely be loosely organized into blocks for meeting/greeting and shooting, etc.

There will be a group shot scheduled for early afternoon.

Here's the initial plan (read desperate stab at an idea to organize the day):

10 - 10:30am   Greet and Morning hang-out
10:30 -12:30am   morning shoot session (maybe catch some morning sun)
12:30 - 2pm   eat, drink, hang out some more and meet more folks...
2 - 3:30pm   afternoon shoot session (different combinations of people please)
3:30 - 4pm   GROUP SHOT!!!
4 - 5:30pm   eat, drink, hang out some more and meet even more cool people... maybe talk about lighting etc.
5:30 - 7pm evening shoot session (again, different combo of participants.
7pm - dusk farewell and clean-up...

After party/bar scene???

Let me know what you guys think...

Think about themes for a shootout... suggestions are welcome but may or may not be used.

It's never too early to reserve a pavilion! It's also 100% refundable if you cancel with enough notice. I'd say go ahead and reserve a few dates then we can drop out the cast aways.

If I don't have to be at the hospital for school I'd like to come out and play too!  I won't know my clinical schedule until early June though, unfortunately sad.

I can take pictures, or do hair, or makeup, or model... basically whatever you need most! Go team smile

Any chance I can catch a ride from downtown Baltimore with someone?

I tend to agree... But wanted to at least broach the option.... Woods are good.

As for set-up... If you want to come by around 9:30ish I can always use extra hands. Last year our biggest problem was hauling the trash out of the park... Got a pick-up truck? It took me two trips in my Subaru. sad

Well, we just won't invite them then... they probably don't like naked in the park, period. Too natural for nature I suppose. Sickos! smile

Yep, it's true. And sorry i missed that, Laura.  But in case the comment is an invitation... yes!  You will have it your way! We might have to settle for some ecofriendly tree binding instead of rafters, though. Close your eyes now and savor the anticipation of sweet surrender... hear the leaves rustling? Feel the breeze around your tightly bound limbs? Click! Click! Click! tongue

Ok, so now that the fantasy moment is out of the way, I really do look forward to meeting and working with you sometime this year, bound or UnBound! big_smile
