    Someone to shoot pictures?

    Could whomever is organizing this PM me, or is there a volunteer to shoot pictures? I'd like to make sure there are some good pictures for possible use in the ON, but I'm not sure that I can make it in person. Thanks.

    I just drove by the fountain this afternoon and the town has it decorated with flowers, everything looks fresh....... one could wonder if the DuPont Family owned the spot.

    I can't photograph that day because I am with Rawhyde.

    Someone ought to contact the local paper.

    Greg,
    I'll have my camera and will get some pictures but I'm not sure they will be ON worthy. I'll email them to you after I return from the rally and you can decide.

    That sounds fine, and much appreciated. Shoot at as high a resolution you can. Thanks!

    Hi Greg,
    Here's the picture I promised you. There was also a guy taking pictures with a much better camera. He said he was taking them for Vince Winkel.

    Wish I could have got mine there, but I was too busy and couldn't find any one to ride it there for me.

    fun stuff

    i enjoyed this little moment at the rally. i don't typically see too many vintage BMWs about let alone any RSs. i had a great time chatting with everyone and just being there on the square. it was actually one of the very few times i left the fairgrounds all week.

    here are some pix i took while there











    it was a nice gathering even tho i know there were a couple more RSs at the Rally that didn't make it. a bunch of great guys on some really sweet bikes.

    I took a number of pictures of the bikes on the square and promised that I would put a link on this thread.

    I've posted them on my Smugmug site http://thruthelensphotos.smugmug.com/ They are in the "2011 Bloomsburg Rally" gallery, starting at picture 54.

    nice pics, thanks for posting. you were able to crop out that nasty phone/power pole from most of your shots. why do they put such heinous things right in the middle of a beautiful square?

    cheaper and more convenient than digging up the street? yeah, it wasn't a conscious thing just trying to focus on the bikes and the fountain, i guess...

    in a downtown filed with other power poles, etc.- i honestly never even noticed it!
