We live in the most populated region in North America, yet we do so few of these.

Before it gets too hot and crowded, how about a trip to The Bronx Zoo?

We could even follow that up with dinner, perhaps on Arthur Ave.

Who Else Is In? What days work?

When do you have in mind?

I am always in for a DPC GTG...... I work M-F so a weekend would be best.

Sometime before Memorial Day.

I would also speculate that many of the animals will be more active in cooler weather.

I do think its time for a GTG!! Sundays are best for me, but could be flexible, with Mother's day and Memorial weekend in May,probably after that may be best. I'll keep a watch on this thread, I'ld love to go!

A day at the zoo and an early dinner at an italian restaurant on Arthur Ave.

Hello to you guys from Tennessee!!! I would love to go to the Bronx Zoo, it would be a great site to see,since I have only been to the airport in NY. It would also be great to meet new people from dpc, but I can't make it up that way being so far down south. I would love to see the pics though. I'll keep a watch on this thread and hope to see lots of those animal picts after your GTG. Hope you guys have good weather and lots of fun.

Take some pictures of the Big Cats for me if you guys can. I love the big cats. Thanks

OK Clearly we need some excitement here.

Ryan ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' digitalpinshas volunteered to run through the lion cage. He swears he can outrun them. I'm not sure about that, but he's very skinny so they might not be that interested in eating him. Either way it will make for some great shots.

So sign up now.

Sounds good to me. Hopefully there will be a Monkey Challenge scheduled that week.

I get the feeling, shooting on Arthur Avenue could be the best part of the day.

Sunday, May 20th?

No monkey challenge but we are looking for a volunteer to demonstrate elephant tipping, after Ryan runs throught he lion cage.

As for shooting on Arthur Ave - should we be calling the NYPD?

So are we set all for May 20th? I can't wait to try my new lens at the zoo (70-200vr in case you were wondering)
