Great to be back in one of my favorite cities.
31.03.2015 - 02.04.2015
I left home on March 1 and we returned home on March 26 as described in my previous post. Of course then I just took off again on March 30 to Calgary where I had dinner with SPE section officers and several other breakfasts and dinners with local volunteers and leaders, spoke at the SPE breakfast before a large crowd, spoke at the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists' "Playmaker Forum" and addressed a large group of students from the University of Calgary and SAIT Polytechnique Petroleum Engineering departments. I was even able to work in some Baker Hughes business.
Calgary feels like home because of my great memories there. Everything about this vibrant city is great with a "can do" attitude, gorgeous scenery, diverse culture and great restaurants. I am a little disappointed I scheduled my trip for a time when there is no opera in town!
Here is the map for Calgary
