Week 4: Bonfire + Joshua Tree Camping Trip Signup (DUE: TUES 11:59PM)

Hello all!

This week the Photography Club at UCLA is having a beach bonfire! Signups are closed, however. If you did sign up, we’ll be meeting this Friday at De Neve Turnaround at 3:45PM. Please bring $7 for transportation and food, and do your best to be on time because the later we leave, the more traffic we’ll hit.

Weather is predicted to be mostly sunny, around 75F in the afternoon, falling to 55 at night. It can get windy at the beach. Bring a jacket! Feel free to bring any equipment you would like to use for a sunset photoshoot (landscape or portait — your choice!), light painting (glowsticks, flashlights, etc), and of course your camera. Beach items (frisbees, towels, etc.) are of course welcome. And don’t forget your tripod!

Joshua Tree Signup (DUE TUES 11:59PM):

8th week (week before Thanksgiving) the Photo Club at UCLA will be heading to Joshua Tree for a weekend of hiking and astrophotography during the Leonids meteor shower. We’ll be going from Friday until Sunday, Nov 22-24 (we will also arrange for some groups to arrive Saturday).  Cars may be returning to UCLA at different times on Sunday morning; we should be back by the early afternoon. The cost is $50+ and all-inclusive (food, transportation, campsite, etc.). However, attendees are requested to bring all the usual items that would accompany a weekend trip, as well as  camera gear. We are also looking for additional drivers and any camping gear people might have available. The less gear we have to rent, the cheaper the trip will be. We will send a packing list closer to the dates of the trip. Due to the logistics involved in planning the trip, we are asking for a $25 deposit with the sign-up; the deposit can be paid through Paypal or in cash at any meeting (cash is preferred). The earlier you sign up, the better we can plan for the event, so please sign up ASAP! We are closing signups this Tuesday, so get that form filled and your payment in!
