When:  Thursday, June 27, 2013 from 5-8 PM

Where:  Bearden Beer Market, 4524 Old Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN 37919

 Who:  All area engineers and scientists, with a focus on  those who are regular members of any engineering or science society and age 35 or under.

 Sponsor:  East Tennessee Section of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) - and any other local engineering or science society that wishes to co-sponsor.

 Why:  Lots of reasons, including being an event that will yield about 10 points for the next merit-based funding submittal of the East Tennessee Section of ASME -  and June 30 is the cut-off date!  But mostly to have an event focused on networking and socializing by younger engineers and scientists. 

 Cost:  No cost to come, all attendees will get a wrist band  good for $1 discount on beer orders;   Attendees who bring proof of regular membership  in any engineering or science society and  are 35 or under will be eligible for drawings for five door prizes ($25 gift certificates for something or other).

 Food:  Lots of options.   Some appetizer trays will be provided, you can bring in your own food (yes, you can even bring a propane tank to cook it on an outdoor grill!), there are food trucks on the street outside the market, pizza can be ordered for delivery, etc.

 Activities - (other than eating, talking and drinking) - include Ping-Pong and corn hole. 

 RSVP:  It would be nice, but is not necessary, you can RSVP to Joe Carson, PE, Chair East Tennessee Section of ASME   The event will happen, rain or shine - we'll have a covered area in the beer garden. 


The East Tennessee Section of American Society of Mechanical Engineers
 is hosting "Engineers' Night at
the Tennessee Smokies"
on  Saturday, June 15, 2013.  The game will be preceded by a picnic, with food and drink supplied by the Smokies, inside the ballpark.  

We have invited every member of ET ASME section, their spouse, guests and children to attend, for free.    The Section's Executive Committee has
authorized paying the cost (a $21 dollar/person value) for these individuals
for pre-game picnic and a box seat for the game against Montgomery Biscuits.
The game starts at 6:15.  The gates open and pre-game picnic starts at 5 PM.
The picnic will end shortly before the game starts.  It will be held, in the
stands, near  the left field corner and the seats for the game will be on
the third-base side.

This is also "cap" day, so attendees will get a Tennessee Smokies ball cap.
