2014 Calendar of Events

Greetings to All,

Nothing is ever very firm in this business, but for your planning purposes, here are my thoughts on CTSA scheduling for the core season from June through September. I've tried to balance between Guilford, East of Guilford, and West of Guilford, alternating so that people on one end or the other don't end up doing the long drive week after week. All the paint-outs are on Thursday mornings, except for the September 13th festival and the possible Wednesday rain date for next week at Flo Gris. You will see that we have a couple of unscheduled dates, which we can use for either make-ups for rain-outs or new suggestions from you.

Over the summer months, if you want to start before 9 to beat the heat and take advantage of the better light, you are likely to find me there any time after 8, although if you care about having company, you could check with me before you go.And don't worry, I'll still be posting the call to paint each week.In nice weather, let's plan to lunch together (byo) after we do our recap.

I'll have a plan for after September also, but let's go with this for now. And again, if you have a suggestion for a place where you would like to paint, or if you would like to have the group paint at your home, please let me know, along with a date or two that would be good for you, and I'll work on it. Thanks to Elena and Anne, who are already on the schedule, and to Tina, who is working on an idea for us.
