Saturday I looked at the date for the shoot - checked the upcoming weather conditions (55 degrees and a 60% chance rain, currently 30%) and evaluated the activities going on Easter weekend.
A poll was placed on Facebook and this site asking people to weigh in on changing the date from April 23 to April 30. Factors influencing were:
- Weather conditions
- Conflicting event activities for people interested
Weather conditions are currently trending about 7-9 degrees cooler than usual, lets hope in the next few days the forecast comes close to the average high of 65 degrees. Best recommendation is to bring a jacket and an umbrella. Photographers make sure your gear is kept water proof and I could be checking around for assistance holding umbrellas for photographers shooting. The project typically has about a 30% chance of rain being forecast and about 20% of those times anything has happened - so we've remained a pretty fortunate outdoor event!
Many thanks for keeping up to date - please spread word of the change and make sure people use your name on the REFERRED BY entry on the registration form (if you are coming this must be filled out).
