Guest Speaker: You!

The SBE Chapter 37 picnic is an opportunity for you to meet with broadcast engineering friends, spouses and families. We plan to get together, tell "war stories," play a little Frisbee, and dine on delicious food. 

Many thanks to sponsors Jim Peck of SCMS as well as Paul Fitts and Owen Garland of Vertical Technology Services for their support.  Thanks also to Brian Oliger, Dave Kolesar, and the folks at WTOP for helping to make arrangements and for hosting the picnic at the WFED AM 1500 transmitter site once again!  

We will be ready to serve food and soft drinks about 12:00 pm. We're also seeking a few volunteers for either setup or cleanup. If you wish to lend a hand, please let us know when you RSVP.  PLEASE RSVP before NOON Thursday, September 30th by sending a brief e-mail to and let us know that we should expect you!

COVID Considerations:  We'll be tempted to be in close proximity around the tables.  We won't mandate masks but please be sensible: Wear masks and don't crowd as appropriate.  We expect everyone in the group to be prudent and considerate enough to have been vaccinated.
