Picnic Time!

The big annual SBE Chapter 16 Picnic will be held Saturday, July 13th at the historic KIRO-AM transmitter facility on Vashon Island!

Festivities begin at noon with free food, comradery and fun for chapter members, family & friends.

This year’s menu includes our traditional hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hotdogs, veggie burgers, salads and lots of watermelon.

The program this year includes the chapter board election results, chapter award winners, announcement of Arne Skoog Scholarship winners and introduction of new members.

If there are enough requests via the RSVP, there may also be a Vashon Island transmitter tour after the main picnic activities.

Vashon Island is home to six 50kW AM transmitters: KOMO, KIRO, KGNW, KJR, KTTH, KFNQ, as well as the historic KVI.

This year’s picnic is sponsored by our good friends at BSW with cold liquid refreshments provided by the folks at Hatfield and Dawson Engineers.

Please RSVP ASAP for planning purposes.  Include your name, how many guests, and if you would like to take the transmitter tour.


Directions to the picnic site and ferry schedules are posted on the chapter “Meetings” tab above.
