Random Noise: February 2018

Dennis Thompson


It was nice to see many of you at last month’s Pizza Bash at Lunas restaurant, always a fun evening.  The results of the officer elections held during the dinner will bring us some new, but familiar faces to the board for 2018. The new SBE66 Chairman is Jaime Gonzalez, CE of KNXT-TV, taking over for Ken Holden who served as Chairman since 2008. Replacing Pat Fennacy as Vice Chariman, will be Ken Preston, former Chief Engineer of KSEE who has recently returned to the Central Valley to enjoy retirement.  Steve Dresser will continue his duties as Secretary-Treasurer. If you have any suggestions for upcoming meeting topics or have a lead for a product presentation, please let them know.
