As usual, our luncheon will be at Sinbad's just south of the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero near the foot of Mission St. We meet at 11:30 and are seated at 12:30. To make reservations call Paul Black at 925-827-9511 and leave a message on his machine.
Tim Pozar emails the newsletter to about a third of our members. I'd like to see more of you sign up for that service, which you can do at our website, which is listed later in this newsletter. Then we can stop the printed version in July of this year.
I've been the SF Area SMPTE chairman for the past two years. SMPTE had been using a postcard for meeting notices. They switched to a brief email message sent to all local members directing them to the website when the notice for the next meeting is posted. That has worked very well with the result that the local chapter budget is used entirely for programs.

A few months ago I picked up a sample pack of the Dixon SenseMatic 2000 automatic pencil. It looks like a classic yellow pencil complete with eraser. The big difference is that it works without any work on my part. It advances the lead as needed. The downside is that you won't find it in one of those pseudo office warehouse stores. They've sold all their shelf space to the usual suspects. You might have to go to..(GASP!)...a real stationery store.
