1:00 PM - Sundown
Given sunrise is at 7:30 am, we will decide as a group Thursday night what time in the morning we will leave for Silo City. We can photograph the exterior of the elevators early from across the river at the foot of Hamburg Street and then head over to Silo City where we will go through safety instructions for the site before photographing inside the elevators. Those having previously attended a Silo City workshop will not be required to go through the safety orientation again.
Meet in lobby of the Marriott. Transportation to Silo City will be shared between instructors and attendees with cars. Driving groups will be decided on Thursday evening.
Breakfast on your own.
