Greetings from Pinky,
This is a special year for the LO 704 and the SCTE. It is the 25th birthday of Pinky and the LO-704, and the 50th Anniversary of the SCTE. We ae planning a Big Easy B-Day party at the LO-704 meeting, so please consider a sponsorship of the event.
Once again we are looking to our former and new sponsors for our annual event. Please see the attached for sponsor information. We are seeking sponsors earlier this year due to many companies having exhausted their event budgets that late in the year.
The Loyal Order of the 704 will be as usual roasting (inducting) new members this year at our meeting in Denver. This year’s meeting will be held on the First night of EXPO, Monday September 30th from 8:00 to 10:00pm at The Hilton Riverside Hotel. 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. If you have any quality Cable Memorabilia, please bring it to the meeting. We will induct a maximum of ten new members, if we find that many qualified and alive.
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.
