The Loyal Order of the 704 will be as usual roasting (inducting) new members this year at our meeting in Philadelphia. This year’s meeting will be held on the first night of EXPO, September 26th from 8:00 to 10:00pm. We have changed to the first night as not to conflict with any other EXPO event and not give you an excuse for attending and humiliating(honoring)the proposed inductee’s..
As usual an auction of really old Cable Junk, ah, memorabilia will be held. All are invited to attend and LO 704 members, please send your recommended nominee’s names to me. firstname.lastname@example.org We will induct a maximum of ten new members, if we find that many qualified and alive. If you have any quality Cable Memorabilia, please bring it to the meeting.
Qualifications for membership are:
Membership in the Loyal Order is upon nomination by a current member, usually someone who knows you, holds a grudge against you, or is afraid of you. The qualifications are 30+ years in the Cable System Business. Extreme Preference is given to Technical Operations, Engineering and/or the ability to tell great lies about how your actual or (alleged) use of a Jerrold 704 meter saved this or that from Nuclear Destruction, Asteroid Collision, Tsunami, Hurricane, Tornado, Earthquake in Napa Valley, or other substantial embarrassment, and the strong desire to wear a Pink Flamingo Cap and kiss Pinky somewhere on Pinky’s body at the induction ceremony.
