    Bumpy bump.

    Was there an agenda established, Aggie? Meeting times, places, and that sort of thing? Thanks.

    Los Banos Refuge issues

    I've been following this thread and have to maybe put a wet ( appropriate to the season ) blanket on the refuges.

    This is prime duck hunting season. As I understand it, until the season is over, you can only access the refuges if you have a hunting license.

    In late November I went on a foray into the Kesterson refuge. The game warden informed me in no uncertain terms that I had to leave. No touristing about is alowed during hunting season.

    So, if anyone has a contact with the refuges, it would be a good thing to check.

    I'd hate to see everyone show up and not get to where you wanted to go.

    Of course that would be a great excuse to go into beautiful downtown Los Banos and gorge on Basque food ( the Woolgrowers Restaurant is an experience in itself).

    Looks like the various waterfowl and game bird seasons end by the end of January. It still wouldn't hurt too check with the refuge management folks regarding access restrictions, however.

    I'm still wondering whether there was some sort of rough agenda established in the chatroom discussions.

    I just spent the past 45 minutes calling various numbers from the state on down to the lonely outpost in the Los Banos area of the fish and game commission. The weekend of Feb. 12 on is perfectly open provided there is no flooding. We will self register at the little booths, and from there we go in. The cost is a whopping $2.50 per day if you are over 16 and do not possess a valid California hunting or fishing license. So there will be no restrictions preventing us from pgotographing other than mother nature.

    The only rough things e had disccussed were that most people would be getting off work on the afternoon of Friday the 11th. That would be travel time that evening for some. Saturday morning would also be a time when some would travel there. So If this works out, I would leave instructions of where to go and such at the main desk of the motel for those who arrive on Saturday morning. That way you can go to the same places we are heading out too. About Noon we can meet at the hotel again, and share good places we found eat lunch, and pick up any person who arrived earlier . The dinner meal that night is one we would all can plan for. We can bring prints to share, and gnerally just hang out together. Sunday would be another day we can go otu shooting, and also that evening travel back home.

    Seems there are three of us who can make this. If there are any others, please make it known, or as far as I am concerned, I will do something else that weekend.

    I would like to celebrate Saint Valentine the same way the Greeks celebrate Juda in Easter: Make a straw puppet and burn it!
