TCACCC Spring Break 2014

The president of the Western Wisconsin Photography Club attended the Spring Break Seminar last Saturday and took some shots with his GoPro and put it all in a short video. Thanks to WPC for sharing the adventure! It certainly looks like a great time was had by all. If you missed this one, there will be another next Spring. Check back for more information later in the year.
