Dallas Camera Club - Field Trips*


2024 FIELD TRIPS (subject to change)





Several months ago, Scherry Johnson told me about Strokers. She said that her sketch group had visited and had a great time drawing the custom bikes and paraphernalia found there. So, I went for a visit and asked if folks with cameras could come by and shoot and was told that they would be happy to see us. Join me June 15th at 10 am for “Bikes, Burgers, and Beer. There is much to see and photograph inside and out. When you have taken all the pictures you want, sit in the shade, and have lunch. Strokers Dallas – It's a lifestyle

You may wish to stop by the nearby north end of Bachman Lake (Bachman Lake | Dallas Parks, TX - Official Website) and catch airplanes taking off and landing at Love field.





The end of October will be out FALL COLOR trip the Great Smoky Mountains NP (Great Smoky Mountains National Park (U.S. National Park Service) (nps.gov)) from the 27th to Nov. 1st. Townsend, TN will be our base of operations (Townsend, Tennessee | Welcome to the Peaceful Side of the Smokies (exploretownsend.com)). I have reserved a cabin in Laural Valley (Laurel Valley Cabin Rentas in Townsend, TN | Dogwood Cabins) for Mary and I. There are many lodging options, so I suggest finding what suits your needs and making reservations now (after looking into cancellation policies) to be sure to have what you want secured. There will be a great deal more information coming on this great trip, so please let me know if you are interested in joining us so that your name can be added to the group list. Thanks. lpetterborg@gmail.com
