Dear sketchers,

Mark your calendars for the 1st Annual West Coast Urban Sketchers Sketchcrawl, July 12 - 14, in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This event, spearheaded by Jim Bumgarner, of USk Tri-Cities, will offer any and all urban sketchers anywhere throughout the world, who for whatever reasons, were not able to attend the Barcelona Symposium, a chance to meet new people, and to enjoy group sketching and socializing in the fabulous San Francisco Bay Area, located on the West Coast of the United States. 

No fees or workshops, the event is designed for meeting with new people and friends, and sketching all day on Saturday, the "40th World Wide Sketchcrawl," in the city where Enrico Casarosa gave birth to the "World Wide Sketchcrawl," San Francisco. 

Friday, July 12: The Golden Bear Inn in Berkeley is recommended as a reasonably priced, central place to stay. Click on the link to contact them directly. Activities will officially begin with a group dinner somewhere in the neighborhood, with some sketching as well.

Saturday, July 13: The Golden Bear is a 15 minute walk to the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transport) station where we will head into San Francisco early in the morning for the "40th Worldwide Sketchcrawl." 

First stop will be the Ferry Building at the foot of Market Street a block from the Embarcadero BART station, Chinatown is within walking distance, and Fisherman's Wharf is close by as well. 

Plan on a full marathon of sketching fun. 

We will meet at the end of the day back at the Ferry Building to share sketches. Return to The Golden Bear sometime later in the evening.

Sunday, July 14: A get-together in and around the Berkeley neighborhood, where there are many areas ripe for sketching, is planned. 

Adjourn at noon; or, for those wanting more, another trip into San Francisco, or other surrounding points of interest are encouraged.
