Utah and California

(Quick trips!)

In this trip I visited the Salt Lake City Section and student chapters at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University. It was cool because I got to see my youngest son who is a physics major at BYU. I joined the BYU students for a football game.

My first stop was a barbecue sponsored by the U of Utah student section where I received a shirt.

I then had a great tour of the nanofabrication labs and then went to EGI.

In the evening I was able to help give the Regional Service award to my friend Arnis Judzis. Also helped deliver some of the scholarships the section gave to SPE members including one who had traveled from Butte, Montana!

The next AM we spent at EGI meeting with petroleum engineering faculty, students and researchers.

This picture is only about half of the attendees because they came and went in the hours before the game. We had plenty of time to discuss career options.

Over the weekend we enjoyed being in Salt Lake City and I headed to California... The gf returned home.

I then flew to Santa Monica to participate in a KIN Catalyst session on Creating a new multi-Stakeholder beginning in unconventional oil and gas. This diverse group of people seeks to better use energy resources and serve as a focal point for rational discussions of what we should do to develop unconventional oil and gas.
