This Month's Meeting

Oct 19th (3rd Thursday) 6:30 pm

Bring a chair.

And bring items for display at the show.

Our October 19th meeting will be at Delphi Productions in Alameda at the old Naval Air Station. Our contact there is Philo Bemis, an early BAWA member. They are in a 106,000 square feet hangar where they make, manage and store exhibits for a wide variety of corporate clients.

Founded in 1989, they are now a global organization with offices in Europe, the Far East, Brazil and Australia. What they do is design, build and produce exhibits and media for tradeshows, events and museums. They do three dimensional design, theater arts and media production to create these exhibits. They have both a wood and metal production shop and most of the exhibits incorporate regular cabinet construction which they have streamlined so they use a number of standardized methods with corresponding hardware for hanging doors for example. Using a CNC machine with a bar code labeler also helps them with their work flow.

Also see their glitzy website: http://www.delphiproductions.com/

Regarding the September Dinner meeting, Robbie Fanning would like to thank Fred Reicher, Janet Thorp, Don Naples, and Tony Fanning for help setting up the BAWA dinner in September.

She would also like to thank everybody for pitching in to clean up in record time.

If you have suggestions for next year's dinner--menus, locations, entertainment, etc.--please email Robbie at rfanning@mac.com.
