SBE Chapter 37 Picnic

Vertical Technology Services

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. We'll also have elections for new Chapter 37 officers. (There's more on that below.)

Many thanks to our sponsors Jim Peck of SCMS, Paul Fitts and Owen Garland of Vertical Technology Services, and Brian Szewczyk of Gates Air 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. If you have special dietary requirements, please let us know. PLEASE RSVP by Friday, September 29th by sending an e-mail to  We're also seeking a few volunteers to help us for either setup, help with cooking, or cleanup. If you wish to lend a hand, please let us know when you RSVP.

As mentioned earlier, elections are upon us and we need you! We are still seeking NOMINATIONS for two positions on the board.  If you wish to recommend someone, please contact any of the present board members or drop us a line at
