Subject: Photo Shoot on 05/24/2010

Hello fellow group members,
 
Just to hash over the shoot.  It will be in Naco starting at Ft Newell/Camp Naco.  The fort ended up with two names.  After the fort we can shoot the downtown area and NO...you cannot accidently end up in Mexico. (LOL)
 
Linda gave me the release forms that everyone has to complete and sign so Sembrando Salud is not responsible for our expenses or accidents.  A reminder that you should have a walking stick when we go on these shoots or other protection due to the possibility you may see snakes or other creepy-crawler critters.  I guess we need to find someone that can tell the group what to do when faced with a sudden rattling noise.  I do have a concealed weapon permit and will have a .357 maggie I carry loaded with snake loads.
 
Lunch:  Need an input for lunch.  We can bring our own (picnic style), go to the Golf Course which has good burgers, or we can go to the Pizzarama (Gus's place in the Safeway plaza).  They have great pizzas, gyro's and Italian cuisine (Gus denies it Italian, he's Greek.)

Ray, I thought we discussed lunch last Monday. Our plan was to take some snacking food, drinks and whatever else someone wanted, and then we would decide at the shoot what we wanted to do for lunch. That is our plan anyway.
 
Do you want me to bring my .38 snubnosed Smith & Wesson? I also have a concealed weapons permit. I also have it loaded with snake shot.

OK...my bad.  I don't hear too well when I leave out my teeth.  Use a hearing aid for better sight. I'm part organic.
 
Drinks are a necessity because of the heat.  And yes, Jim please do bring your weapon so we will be prepared for any creepy crawlers.
