It’s gonna be some weekend up in Glens Falls, NY. Off the top of my head – here’s some of what’s been keeping me up the last few nights: (4) – Arena strobes w/ appropriate clamps, tool bag, luggage cart, gaffers tape, about a dozen Pocket-Wizards, (4) – Canon camera bodies, (1) Nikon D-1X w/ 2 or 3 Nikon AF lenses (to use as a secondary remote body), 6 – Canon AF lenses, supporting gear such as digital camera battery charger, Mac PowerBook kit w/ spare battery, numerous CF cards, (6) – locking safety cables, about 200′ of heavy duty extension cords, 30 – AA batteries, more gaffer’s tape, black cine-foil, extra eyeglasses, and yet more gaffer’s tape. Oh yea, a few packs of gum too.
Last year’s Class AA State Champions, Newburgh Free Academy (NFA) plays on Saturday afternoon against CBA of Albany. We have three other teams from our coverage playing in the state tournament, so there is a possibility I may be shooting 6 or 7 games in the next three days. Stay tuned… ~cg.
