We’ve answered the question–

Barbecue is always better than microwave

 

Find out for yourself at the SBE 66 Annual Picnic

Saturday, September 19, 2015  12:00pm – 3:00pm

Meadow Lakes Picnic Area

OK, so the deep-barrel BBQ is a bit slower than the microwave, but oh so tasty!

How tasty you ask?  Well, take the short drive up to the Meadow Lakes picnic area and find out.  As always, SBE will provide the Tri-Tip BBQ and refreshments, but there’s more–that’s where you come in.  This is a pot-luck event.  Attendees whose last names end in A-K should bring dessert items.  Names ending in L-Z should bring salads and/or side dishes.  It’s OK to break the rules if you have a special dessert or side dish you want to bring.  Ice for the drinks is always welcome.  The festivities officially start at noon but help setting up the tables is always appreciated if you arrive earlier.  We’ll also figure out how to throw in an official SBE66 meeting (short) somewhere along the way. See your friends, bring the family, have FUN !

After you can eat no more,  join the caravan for a tour of your favorite Central Valley broadcast transmitter facilities.

See you at Meadow Lakes, Saturday September 19, at Noon.  Don’t miss it!

SBEgaryCocolaCocola Broadcasting Companies began as a dream – one man’s dream to explore non-traditional uses of the television medium. Gary Cocola was a forty-year veteran of radio and television when he decided to create an independent television station which would offer viewers local and alternative programming.

“One of my main goals,” says Gary Cocola, President and CEO of Cocola Broadcasting Companies “is to always come up with new ideas and then implement those ideas into reality.”
