  Apr 21 Meeting Notice

Thanks to each of you who were present for our March 17, 2014, meeting. We had two very good presentations to enlighten us and to heighten our interest in future activities in our industry.

Bob’s history presentation on roller bits was a reminder that a fresh outlook can help us see the value of experience, ingenuity and financing to start a whole new phase of business. You will want to visit our website and study Bob’s presentation.

Bruce Crager’s slides and information on “ Floating Production Systems – The Industry’s Best Solution for the Future” are now on our website. His presentation generated a number of questions and the interest continued with after-meeting discussions. A visit to our website will be a useful review for those who were present and a very interesting study if you were unable to attend.

Your Program Committee has arranged for Dr. Andrew R. Barron to tell us of developments in fracing and water use; “Imaging a Frac and Tracing the Water Using Nanotechnology”. This area of our industry is receiving a lot of press; much of it ill-informed or misinformed. We can listen to D. Barron for information that might help us in discussions to improve our industry image re fracing and water usage.

We continue to have visitors, new members and returning members and we appreciate each of your efforts in this endeavor. Your attendance and influence in attracting new members helps to meet our need for numbers that aid in getting the speakers for topics of most interest to our membership.

Your officers met after the March meeting to discuss the “State of POPS” and plan for the future. We have three more meetings before our summer break. The programs have been scheduled. The speakers will present information to keep us current on happenings and developments in our Industry. Each of us needs to prospect and invite others to visit and join POPS. Please pass along to one of our officers your ideas and suggestions for meals, meetings, programs, recruiting, encouraging attendance and recommendations for officers for the 2014-15 year.

POPS is as vibrant as each of us want it to be. Your preferences are important; make them known.

Please stay current by frequent check of our website. Print items of interest and pass them along to members and prospects who may not have a computer.

Plan now to be present for our April 21st meeting. If you need transport assistance, please let one of our officers know. You will benefit from attending and the rest of us will benefit from your presence. See you about 11:30 am, April 21, 2014.
