Clark Gardens

We will have our first 2021 group outing on Saturday, May 15, at Clark Gardens, which is west of Weatherford and east of Mineral Wells. It is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Some members may arrive promptly at 8 a.m. for the early light and others might arrive later. The plan is to travel separately and maintain safe distancing while shooting there. Tripods are allowed.

Taos, New Mexico

Our Outings Chairperson, Marsha Ezell, is finalizing the details for a camera club trip to and from Taos, New Mexico from Sept. 4 to 12. A detailed itinerary will be shared once it is finalized. Anyone thinking of going should immediately make refundable hotel reservations in Taos for the nights of Sept. 5-10 since they are always scarce during that time period.
