Greetings ASHE Members!
Hopefully you are still full of the energy of the New Year; if not, then may the renewal that Spring embodies grab hold of you!
I’ll be the first to admit that interaction with colleagues has been perhaps the most challenging aspect of the past year, but hopefully you are staying connected to those in our industry through the plethora of virtual meetings and webinars. You’ll have another opportunity to do so with the Central Florida Section’s upcoming virtual technical luncheon. On April 13th, Real Image Solutions will be presenting the use of 123BIM, which develops 3D virtual models for use in presentations and project collaboration. You’ll be seeing an email soon with registration information.
I wanted to give an update on our annual Clay Shoot. While a virtual clay shoot may sound good to video gamers, this is one event that needs to be held in-person, so we’ve postponed this signature event until Saturday, October 16th. Stay tuned for information on registration.
One of the obligations of each ASHE section is to periodically submit an article for the national Scanner magazine. This spring it is the Central Florida Section’s turn, so reach out to any of your Board members (email@example.com) if there is a project or technological advancement that you’d like to get out to a national audience. The deadline to submit is April 9th.
Here are a few one-liners as March’s Corny Joke(s) of the Month:
– Why can’t a bicycle stand on its own? Because it’s two-tired.
– A man walks into a bar with a pavement core in his hands and says: “A beer please, and one for the road.”
– A father was washing his car with his son and the son asked, “Dad, can’t you just use a sponge?”
And, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I leave you with an Irish blessing:
May your troubles be less, and your blessings be more.
And nothing but happiness come through your door.
