haha, sorry for the cheezy old bball saying from my college days at the wonderful University of Puget Sound but I got to meet up with a big group of former loggers and logger family members today and so this stuff is just fresh in my mind.
Dale Chihuly, a well known glass blowing artist currently has an exhibit at the DeYoung Museum in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, so Aaron (a fellow '04 UPS alum) and I planned to have private docent tour of the exhibit for about 40 of us.
We planned a happy hour in the city a few months back, but this was our first attempt at a bit of a larger event and all in all, despite a few financial bumps along the way, I'd have to say the event was a big success.
We met at the museum at 8 am and provided bagels and coffee and orange juice for everyone and then at 9 had a docent tour of the exhibit. People came from all over they bay area; mountain view, fremont, manteca, antioch...pretty impressive for such an early morning event, especially on a Saturday.
It made me so happy this morning to see how excited the attendees were. We have been trying to grow our logger community in the bay area and I feel like this event really sparked some interest.
Here are some pics of our morning.
