Oregon AMS Meeting Next Saturday

September 14, 2011

Hey bloggers!

We have a Oregon AMS (American Meteorological Society) “fall kickoff” meeting coming up in just about 9 days.  This will be similar to last November’s meeting at Stark Street Pizza.  It’s a “joint meeting” again, functioning as a KPTV Weather Blogger get-together as well.  I’ll be there for at least the first hour or so…since I’ll be working the 5pm show that day.  Maybe I’ll get to meet a few more of you.

We hope to see you all there Saturday, September 24th at 1pm. There will be a social hour from 12 noon to 1pm. This is going to be a well attended event, so please arrive early for the best seating (although everyone just walks around chatting anyway!). Come have some of the best pizza in town. We will be raffling off some really great weather stuff along with some KPTV swag too!  Raffle tickets will be $1 each and all proceeds go to the Oregon AMS treasury. Also, let me know if you have something to present at the meeting and we will work it into the agenda. Of course this meeting is also open to the general public and new members (many of you???) are welcome to come sign up. Current members can also pay their dues for the current season underway now.

The annual WHAT WILL THE WINTER BE LIKE meeting is all set for OMSI in October.  This is by far the largest event our chapter organizes.  Last year it was in mid October, this year we move to Saturday, October 29th at 10:00am.  Mark it down on your calendars.
