    Default Crossing Bridges 12 - Sri Lanka 6-12 September 2015



    The annual Crosing Bridges gathering is in its 12th year now . This year, representatives from photography communities of 8 countries will be gathering in Sri Lanka for a week of shooting, friend-making and fun from 6-12 September which are the official trip dates

    Cost of joining this trip this year is US$650 per person land-only for 7 days 6 nights

    Itinerary is as follows below

    MORE DETAILS will be posted up the next 1 to 3 days with images

    Reminder: read previous years' Crossing Bridges threads , discussions and images for an idea of what goes on During Crossing Bridges. Its gruelling, it tough, its fun and its NO holiday for those of you looking for a cheap jaunt to Sri Lanka

    Entry into Team Singapore is via selection based essentially on your history in Clubsnap. We're looking for 15 active CS'ers who are active in the community . 90 applicants vied for 20+ slots last year to Crossing Bridges 11 in Korea.

    IF you are keen to join this project, do send me a PM..... final team selection will be in 3rd week of Feb

    Although it is officially a 7day 6night trip, Team Singapore will likely extend and make it a 11-12 day trip either arriving earlier or staying longer to cover other parts of Sri Lanka not covered by CB12

    Will keep all informed
