Oh, It's ON!!!!

Well it looks like you all are wanting to still have a meeting, so that is great. I will try to do what I can and hope to at least be there, depending on whether I have to have surgery or not or how much pain I am in. 6:30pm, Thursday at the Cape Public Library Oscar Hirsch Room. We will need to take down our photos from the Geraldine Hirsch Room also.

To Cancel or Not?

OK, decision time. I am not in a position physically to do a meeting this month, but don't want to cancel if you all are wanting to get together. Do some of you want to put together something and have a meeting, or should we just cancel? Kent Nelson has said that he would present on capturing sunsets, but other than that I don't remember asking anyone to talk. I will wait and see what you all have to say before I cancel. Please give your opinion and what you would be willing to do to help get the meeting going if you can. I can lend guidance, but will not be in good enough shape to put everything together.

Balloon Races

We have had several people asking about the Forest Park Balloon Race and Balloon Glow. From what I have heard, most want to go to the Balloon Glow on Friday. I cannot find the emails that I got from folks, so here is the best info that I can give you to help you coordinate the trip. It is important to get up there fairly early, so you should leave from the Cape Nature Center parking lot by 1:00pm for the Friday Balloon Glow. I (Dan) will not be able to make it AGAIN this year, but if you want to contact me with questions you can at 573 225-6593.
