I'm attending the April 12-17 program; coming from Grand Ledge, Michigan. I'm looking forward to learning helpful camera techniques, seeing the beautiful S.C. countryside and meeting other like-minded people. If someone needs a roommate, please contact me. Thanks!

I have not. I am excited as i have been feeling a little lost, so this is my get on with life adventure.
Sharon Darr Apr 09, 2015 at 06:39 AM

In my experience - I've attended only 7 other programs - Road Scholar provides quality in all areas. I bet you will get 'unlost' and even more excited about photography and their other programs. Now, if someone could just teach me to 'pack light'! Ugh!! See you soon...

This is my 8th Road Scholar in a little over a year. They are very well organized and the photo ones tend to be small group so they are fun. I amk coming from NJand making the trip in two days.

Barbara, look forward to meeting you... this should be fun, interesting. Springtime and all that.

I'm attending the October program and am interested in knowing if there are other Mah Jongg players in the group? I'd be happy to bring some tiles with me.
