Sod for sale!

Greeley Blues Jam 10th Anniversary June 13th & 14th


As many of you know we put fresh sod for our event on Saturday, and then we sell it for 15 cents a sq. foot with a minimum purchase of 300 sq. ft. which equals $45.00.  Additionally you can add 50 square feet increments for $7.50 each.

Sod will be available for pick up on Sunday June 9th beginning at 9:00 A.M. at the Island Grove Arena by entering at the NW entrance, which is just past the Stampede office.

400 square feet of sod will be on each pallet and will weigh approximately 1800 lbs., so we suggest people to use pickups with trailers to haul the sod.  We also ask that all pallets be returned to Island Grove.

Ticket Office hours:  M-F noon to 6pm, Saturday Noon to 4pm.

Film Festival Red Carpet

David Schrager Photography


Last week I photographed the red carpet for the Boston International Film Festival movie premiers. There were some great movies, charismatic people, and fast-paced but enjoyable photo work.

Photo tip: take your external flash off of ETTL mode and play around with Manual. ETTL stands for “evaluative, through the lens” and automatically determines the flash power output for you, similar to the way your camera reads it’s surroundings and adjusts it’s own settings depending on what mode you have it in. I typically like ETTL when conditions are constantly changing around me, but I find you’ll be more consistant with a shoot like this if you stick to one, manually determined flash setting. ETTL can sometimes misread it’s surroundings and fire too little or even too much flash. External flashes are powerful, so even with minimal light I only needed about 1/8 power for this red carpet.

But I’m also something of a completist by nature. The movie was one of ten digital downloads I received free from VUDU (the service’s choice of movies, not mine, obviously), and I can’t stand to have a film in my collection remain unwatched indefinitely. I own it, I can’t get rid of it, I might as well watch it at least once.

Of course, I went into this with no small amount of skepticism. The premise of the film is fairly ridiculous. Drew Barrymore, as a would-be journalist in her mid-20s, is sent back to high school to do some undercover investigative journalism. It didn’t sound like an idea with promise, especially for a rom-com; it might conceivably have worked for a straight-up comedy had…
