Chairman’s Message –August and September 2014
Our June meeting was held on Thursday evening (June 12th). 21 attended our annual Sporting clays shoot & enjoyed the charcoaled steaks at Castlewood Rod & Gun Club. Top Gun again this year was Gary Young he lead the field of 12 shooters with a score of 35 out of 50 clay targets.
Our election of officers was completed on July 10th at the executive meeting. As it stands now I have accepted another year as your chairman. There were 10 officers in attendance. Our section meetings will start again on Thursday, September 18th. This year we would like to kick off the 2014/2015 section meetings with a night at PNC park for a game between our Pittsburgh Pirates and the Boston Red Sox. The game starts @ 7:05 pm. We need to order tickets by August 8th to get seats in the same section for our group. Please contact Gary Young (our social chairman) by noon on Aug 8th to reserve your ticket for this game.
Our meeting speakers are being finalized for the balance of the 2014/15 season if you know someone that would like to be a speaker let us know and we will work to find them a spot for an upcoming meeting. We are looking for a subject for our annual training seminar to be held in May of 2015. If you have a specific NDT need please let us know and we will try to put a program together for that method.
Just a reminder, check us out at asntpgh.org our website has been up and running all year. Please keep your e-mail address up-to-date with ASNT, as this is where we get our information to send your newsletter.
To kick off the 2014/2015 ASNT Pittsburgh section meetings, I want to invite everyone to PNC Park where our Pirates are taking on the Boston Red Sox. Plans are still in the works until we see how many tickets we need. This will be open to members and their guests. The deadline to order tickets will be noon on August 8th. Depending on the cost of the seats we will purchase loaded value tickets good for food & refreshments at the ballgame. Once we have the number of those attending arrangements to deliver the individual tickets will be made.
If you plan to attend the meeting, please RSVP as soon as possible to Gary Young at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-752-0055 ext 3194.
NOTE: Please remember to update your contact information with ASNT if you change your email address or would like the newsletter mailed to your home/office. We use the information ANST has on file to send out our monthly communications.
Hope to see you at the ball game!
