The November meeting of the Potomac Geophysical Society will be held November 17th at the Fort Myer Officers’ Club in Arlington, VA (http://www.fmmcmwr.com/maps.htm) in the Glassed-in room in the Fife and Drum (main dining room).
This month’s talk will be: “Use USArray to map mantle structure: from top to bottom”
Speaker: Daoyuan Sun
Affiliation: DTM/Carnegie Inst. Washington
New Meeting Room and Dining Arrangements: We now meet in the glassed-in room at the back of the main dining room—The Fife and Drum. We order individually from the Club menu, which has a nice variety of dinner offerings. We pay a single bill (I pay it with my Officers Club credit card), so we collect at least $25 from each diner with the agreement, that if one orders more than $20 in food and drink, he adds the amount over $20 to his contribution. The $5 overcharge goes to the Room Fee, Tax, Gratuity, and the Speaker’s Dinner. We collect on the Honor System. We did this for the first time in September, and it worked well. This room change and use of the menu have greatly reduced the loss that we have incurred in the past for having fewer than 20 people dining, and the change has preserved the viability of using the Officers Club for our meetings.
Reception at 6:00. Order Dinner at 7:00. Talk at 8:30 PM. Please note that the meal orders will be taken at 7:00. Allow 15 minutes for security entering Ft. Myer as all civilian vehicles are searched. To ensure access to and from Fort Myer use the Hatfield Gate, open 24 hours a day (http://www.fmmcmwr.com/directionsmyer.htm).
