Hello again.

Your faithful SBE 66 Chairman here (see picture on the left) to remind you that the Central Valley Chapter of the Society of Broadcast Engineers will be gathering for Lunch on Thursday the 28th of August. See the big picture at the top of this Newsletter for the big picture on where to find us. This will be a non hosted event so lease pay as you enter. You don’t need to be a member of SBE to attend–new faces are always welcome! Our annual Meadow Lakes Picnic and BBQ will be coming up next month, so we’ll be finalizing the time and date for that.  I hope to see you at the meeting with any questions, concerns, that you might have on any central valley broadcasting topic.
