Hi Everyone

Below are the details for our weekend away from Friday 3th to Sunday 5th November in Napier. The Hawkes Bay area has lots of  opportunities for landscape, wildlife, architecture and people photography.

If you are not on the list and would like to go please let Rachel know.

Pot luck dinner Friday Night at the Motel & Saturday dinner or lunch with the Hawkes Bay Photographic Society.

Rhythm & Booms which is a performing arts, music and fireworks festival in Waipukerau on the Saturday the 4th (unfortunately you will miss the dinner) but there will be heaps of photo opportunities and yummy food. $15pp – tickets have to be purchased prior.

A dawn run to Te Mata Peak is also being organised but it will depend on the Gannets whether it will be Saturday or Sunday morning.
