Photo Opportunity with Iowa City Hammock Club

We would like for a member of the club to volunteer & join us (30-45 minutes) and take some photos of members relaxing in hammocks while enjoying s’mores at the Coralville Dam Tailwater West Campground.

This is a great opportunity to get some artistic, staged, and candid shots!

Event Details:

“Do you wanna s’more?”

“I haven’t had anything yet, so how can I have some more of nothing?”

“You’re killing me, Smalls! These are s’mores stuff, okay? Now everyone pay attention. First, you take the graham. You stick the chocolate on the graham. Then, you roast the mallow. When the mallow’s flaming, you stick it on the chocolate. Then you cover it with the other end. Then, you scuff. It’s kind of messy, but it’s good.” (The Sandlot, 1993)

——-

Don’t be like Smalls! On Sunday, October 25 from 5-7pm, kick off fall with s’more fun, s’more laughs, and s’more friends! From the comfort of your hammock and in your favorite pair of pajamas, we’ll be roasting marshmallows and making amazing s’mores around a campfire!

Be sure to bring your hammock or camping chair, flashlight, blanket, and warm clothes!
