June Luncheon – Safeco Field Tour

Luncheon Announcement – June 2013 Safeco Field Tour

A tour of Safeco Field will highlight the June 13 Chapter Luncheon.  The tour has been arranged by SBE Secretary Yezmin Blue.  Yezmin is Manager of Broadcast Engineering for the Seattle Mariners Baseball team that makes Safeco Field their home venue.

Highlight of the tour will be a visit behind the scenes of the venue’s new giant LED video screen.  At 202 feet by 57 feet, the display is nearly a block long and wider than the record-holding jumbo display at Dallas Cowboys Stadium.  The display is 1080p by 3840p resolution with 4,147,200 pixels.

The tour will also include a visit to the video control room that allows real time video on the big screen as well as the numerous video displays throughout the venue. The tour will begin promptly at 10:45.  A group photo will be taken on-field at 11:15. A catered lunch will be available for $10, consisting of the traditional ballpark hotdog, green salad and soft drink.  Vegetarian hotdogs are available if requested.  RSVP’s are a must for this event luncheonRSVP@sbe16.org.

Free parking will be available to those on the RSVP list in the Safeco Field Garage which is located south of Safeco Field.  M. Buck, SBE Chapter Program Chairman, will be at the Garage entrance to assist with the parking passes for the luncheon attendees.

Luncheon parking will be provided with RSVP in the Surface Parking Lot located on the East side of the large parking structure.  You can reach the parking lot by turning South on Occidental Ave S, then turning East on S Massachusetts Street. The street bends to the North and the Surface Parking Lot is on the Left.  Watch for Program Chairman Buck who will have parking passes and then enter the Field through the nearby Security office.
