Photography
We will have the opportunity to take picture of the beautiful nature.

We advise to bring a DSLR type camera, but you can also have fun with a compact camera or a decent smartphone.

Car pooling
Please indicate if you have a car (and how many people you can take) and where you are located.

I can take up to 7 people. Meeting point at Metro Station Rosemont at 10:30 AM (be there a bit earlier because this is the departure time)

EXPERIENCE SPEAKING, almost every event has had an unfortunate mismatch related to car pooling. A driver or a someone looking for a ride does not show up, though having agreed on a meeting time/point. With the consequence that some people do cannot make it to the event. This is NOT COOL, to say the least. So please:
1. Confirm with the driver your presence
2. Have his/her cell number in case something unexpected happens

RSVP and be respectful of attendance intention. If you register but later realize you cannot attend, please unregister.

Event will be rescheduled if weather is not favorable.
