OK so I have once again been put in charge of trying to coordinate another ST Louis area GTG. At this point I have nothing for a place or a date. I'm open to suggestions and am just tossing this out to get the ball rolling. If anyone has any suggestions on a time or a place, or even a subject for a GTG please post and lets get the ball rolling. Maybe a late July or August date, or wait until Sept when the weather cools down a bit. I had such a good time at the last one I am ready to do it again.

Not to intrude but it would be neat if us from KC and u all from STL. could meet in Jeff City or somthing. Just a thought. could make a nice day event or weekend. Plus new sites neither of us may not have shot yet.

You wouldnt get an argument from me on that. We could always find stuff in the capitol to do. I wonder if they would allow a group of photogs in the capitol. All I can suggest is if someone knows the area and can figure out things to shoot organize it. The old saying runs true, if you organize it they will come.

I'd be up for something possibly this fall. I'll be in Italy for 2 weeks in September...but maybe a weekend in August or sometime in October?

Hi Mat, Thanks for getting this started. Oct would work best for me. My son is coming home in sept and the camera club is taking a trip to the Tetons the third week of Sept. I like the Jeff city idea. If you decide to do that let me know my sister inlaw works at the capitol and i might be able to get some tour info from her.

I'm in too, again! I will be busy a few weekends here and there throughout August, September, and October...so my availability will be hit or miss. I will try my best to make it either here in STL or in Jeff City.

Looking at a calandar, the weekend dates I have open are:
July 28-29
August 11-12, 18-19, 25-26
September 15-16, 22-23

I don't have any ideas yet on places, but will think on it and post anything that comes up.

I could possibly do either one, depending on what is going on at that time.

I would be interested in a GTG in KC, STL or Jeff City.
07/16/2007 08:41:07 PM · #12
I'm going to throw a date out there.... How about Jeff City October 6th? If u wana change the date just change it until we find somthing that works with us all. My dates are pretty flexible cause I'm a full time student.

October 6th is the "Fall Classic" at Arrowhead Stadium in KC. This is a huge rivalry game between Northwest Missouri State Bearcats and Pittsburg State Gorillas. I will be attending the game, as my brother is a senior defensive back this year. It is a GREAT opportunity to shoot some football action in one of the greater football stadiums in America.

Please, don't take this as "Plan the GTG around Drew!" If the 6th works for everyone else, great; and I will catch everybody the next time around.

July 28-29
August 11-12, 18-19, 25-26
September 15-16, 22-23
Ocotber 13-14

Jeff City sounds cool, where is there to shoot besides the Capitol? Any bluffs or river overlooks, the leaves should be turning good color in October.

Well lets try to plan Oct 13-14 what does everyone else think? I'll do some research and find out what I can about Jeff City.

I'm going to bump this and see if anyone else has any ideas on dates or places. Are we going to try a GTG in the Jeff city area?

I'm going to revive this thread. I want another GTG and would like to maybe shoot fall foilage which comes in its peak in the next few weeks. Anyone interested in a GTG? I have searched and found some areas that are suppose to be really nice. Link to the quicxk search I did. I'm not much of a landscape type shooter, so I'd prefer someone with some experience in the area of photography help pick the place and make things happen. So any interest for a ST. Louis area(notice I didnt say St. Louis only) GTG?

I would be up for something like that :-) Hubby will be hunting the weekend before Thanksgiving, so I'd have some free time to make a trip for a GTG. Otherwise, I'll have to see what weekends get suggested. Trying to visit family in Chicago before the big Turkey Day too :-)

Don't really have any landscape experience, but I'd be willing to host Bear Music in Champaign if he'll come out ;-) ;-)

PS-I've been down the River Road in Alton, and it *is* quite lovely. I imagine it would be very beautiful with the fall colors.

I just noticed there is an amtrack train that runs from St. Louis to KC and back 4 times a day. We could gather by train at either city.
The locals at either location could pick up the ones coming in.

Just a suggestion. ;)

I might be able to go, depending on the date. I would say that almost any weekend after mid- April will probably work for me.
