LASPE & TYP Charity Golf Tournament May 12, Gorgon Project luncheon presentation, WRM April 24-27 in Bakersfield

Dear Friends and Members of SPE,

May 12th is coming soon. That is the day of the annual LASPE and TYP Charity Golf Tournament. Sign-ups are going well, so don’t wait. Sign-up today. We are having the event at the beautiful Navy course in Cypress. Both scratch golfers and new golfers will enjoy the course. Golfing will be followed by a great lunch where we will award trophies to the winners and have a raffle for many excellent prizes. This year we will have both a low gross and blind bogey, so everyone has a chance to win. We all had a great time last year and this year’s tournament should be even better.

The annual charity golf tournament is LASPE’s major fundraiser supporting student scholarships and our community outreach programs. All proceeds are for good causes, so come on out and have a good time and support some good works.

This month’s luncheon speaker is Steve Shryock. He will be speaking on his work with Chevron on the massive Gorgon Project. The Gorgon Project is a huge gas development off the coast of Australia. It is one of the largest gas field developments ever. I encourage everyone to attend, it is going to be most interesting.

Finally, I highly recommend attending this year’s Western Regional Meeting (WRM) in Bakersfield. Since all the SPE members who put together such meetings are volunteers, the downturn in the industry has made it difficult to organize such events. The members of the San Joaquin Valley section are doing a fantastic job putting this year’s WRM. There will be many exhibitors, interesting papers, and fun events. There may not be another WRM in quite awhile that will be as good as this year’s meeting.
