  • Tri-City Dust Devils Baseball Game

    It’s been a great year for the Columbia Basin Section – several tours (Lampson Cranes, Wanapum Dam, PNNL Grid Modernization, and the WSU Wine Center) interesting talks (A Days Pay – the Bomber paid for by the Hanford workers, Dr. Naveen Karri, The Reliability of Thermoelectric Generators, Joe Cluever, Area in Probabilistic Degradation Models – for corrosion, Jeff Dagle on PNNL grid Modernization Initiative Consortium) and K-Grad School activities or support (First Lego League, Girls Introduction to Engineering, Science Fair, Robotics High School Tournament, meetings with Walla Walla College and Central Washington University student sections, and support of WSU Tri-Cities ASME Student Conference).

    To finish off a great year, the Columbia Basin Section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is sponsoring a gathering at the Dust Devils game on Saturday, June15th, when the Dust Devils play the Everett Aquasox at 7:15 PM.

    ASME arranged for special seating (first base side, right next to the field) and a BBQ prior to the game - all you can eat and drink (soda and beer) for an hour prior to the game (6:15 PM). Tickets for the entire event are $25 per person and can be reserved by contacting Gary Hickman at (509) 430-4048 or

    The tickets and wrist bands for the BBQ can be picked up in the parking lot prior to the game (~6:00 PM).

    This was an extremely fun outing the last few years and I hope you can join us this time as well.
