We took a ride this afternoon up to the town of Natchitoches, the place where we'll be shooting in April.  Zach and I did some measurements, getting the lay of the land.

Of course, you can click on the pics for a better view.  It's a lovely place, with lots of history.  Those red poles on the edge of the curb might be problematic, but they're spaced unevenly.  Some of them are over 60 feet btween them, the narrowest I measured was 43 feet between them.  It looks like Natchitoches put them up for specific reasons, without any plan to evenly space them.  It is what is is, and we'll work around them.

The width of that sidewalk varies as well, depending on if there is a bench concreted in place.  At some places there is barely four (4) feet between the curb and the edge of usable space.

It's a lovely place to hold the event, and I'm sure that we'll work it out, but we're going to have to wait until we're there, with ranges on the ground, to see how the final setup is going to look.

Another view of the sidewalk. This gives the planners some perspective of the issues.  They're workable, but we'll do some head-scratching.

In the next day or so, I'll be getting out the hotel information.  Natchitoches has a wealth of hotels within 5 miles of the shooting venue, and the folks there seem as excited about us coming as we are about beingn there.
