Field Trip to Bowie Skate Park on Sept. 26

  The club's first field trip for the 2009-2010 year will take place right here in Bowie.   On Saturday, Sept. 26th, at 10:00 a.m., we'll meet at the Bowie Skate Park, located in Allen Pond Park, just off of Mitchellville Road in Bowie.   The Bowie Skate Park is a 10,000 square foot concrete skating facility.  It includes both street and vertical skating elements and is used by both skateboarders and in-line skaters.  As long as the weather is good, there should be plenty of action to photograph from the stands. 

   There is no cost for visiting Allen Pond Park, and this is an easy-to-get-to, local venue, so do consider coming out if you can.  For those who are taking down photos from the club's exhibit at the Bowie Senior Center that day, you can come directly to Allen Pond Park from there in just a matter of minutes.  The skate park is located near the Mitchellville Road entrance to the park, but if you come in from Northview Drive, simply drive past the ice-skating rink, and continue up the road past the parking lot.

   For more information about the park, including directions, you can go to:


    If you have any questions or just want to let me know you're coming, you can contact me at 301-249-2210, or by e-mail at

     See you there!
