SBE Chapter 16 Christmas Party was a blast!

Our annual chapter Christmas Party was held Saturday evening, December 17 at Ivar’s Salmon House in Seattle.  Our Chapter Chairman, Jon Kasprick sent his impressions to the Chapter Members email list and are included in this Waveguide Report.

In case you missed it, last night’s SBE Chapter 16 Christmas Party was a blast!  Ivar’s Salmon house provided a festive venue, with fantastic food and service. We even had Carollers and Santa’s curmudgeon cousin “Kevin Kringle” with his bag of goodies.

I want to specifically thank Jim Dalke for promoting the event, collecting the RSVPs and producing our “year in review” slideshow; and Michael Brooks for managing our gift inventory, guest check-in and helping with “Kevin” and the gift drawing. These two guys were essential to the success of the evening!

Of course, a huge THANK YOU to all the sponsors that provided gifts and support this year! Without these folks, the evening would’ve been just a fancy chapter meeting!  Contributors included Blackmagic Design, Broadcast Tools, Inc., Bownestone Representatives, Gates Air, Harrington Aerial, Inovonics, Nautel, Orban, SCMS, The Radio Historian, Tieline, Wheatstone, Marty & Cai Hadfield, and Hatfield and Dawson Engineers.

Most of all, THANK YOU to our members and guests who truly made the evening memorable, and helped us take home so many great gifts!

Happy Holidays!

Editor’s note: The gift contributors appreciate a note of thanks for their participation.
