3/12 Flips Meet In Grapevine

Time for another Flips meet in Grapevine. Thursdays are $2 drink nights (beer only, if you are interested) we will be going over some of the stuff for the Statewide meet so if you have any questions this would be a good time to ask them. It should be fun so I hope to see a bunch of you there!

Well I was planning to make a montage of the night... since I took some footage of Steve on the way up... but then when I got home I discovered that my wife had inadverently switched modes to Night Shot, so all of the stuff after was in infra red and I thought it looked horrible. I ended up deleting the whole set.

In other news, I bought a camera mount today (http://www.filmtools.com/gripper-302...mount.html)and I will def be taking more footage leading up to the state meet to try and decide the angles I want to capture. I've already learned some stuff since last night about what has worked and what hasn't. I'm hoping someone could put together another cruise in april so that I can get some practice with group footage.

If you really want to see the footage I can try and run some disk recovery software on my drive to get it back. Its not a big deal for me to do so, just let me know.

Heads up on that Travis... Brandon's AT stock shocks are not the same as MT stock shocks (unless the AT is the sport model, which I know Brandon's isn't).

Just something additional to think about.
