Comments from our President

April 1, 2014

In his delightful book “By Way of Introduction” (1929), A. A. Milne writes of golf
I have noticed when playing golf, that the more I alter my swing (and I alter it every week, in the certainty that at last I have attained the true one) – the more this happens the more characteristic of myself does my swing appear to the onlookers. In vain, I assure my caddie or my opponent that I am a different golfer altogether today; that I have a straighter left arm, a more advance left foot, a flatter trajectory of the club-head. He only smiles. He would recognize my ineffective swing three hundred yards away.
Anyway, have
YOU signed up for the DGGS Golf Tournament? The event is scheduled for Monday, April 28, and will be held at The Tribute and Old American Golf Clubs in The Colony – both beautiful courses! You can sign up individually or with your own foursome by going to http://www.dgsdallas.org/en/cev/406 Sign up by Friday, April 11.

And we posted an article from our April, 1983, “DGS Bulletin” titled
“New Exploration Strategy: Dry Hole Drilling”, by K. Shields. I suspect it is as true now as it was then. Check it out at http://www.dgsdallas.org/en/art/286/

Our next Geophysical Luncheon will be Thursday, April 17, at 11:30 am at Brookhaven College Geotechnology Institute. Paul Collins will be talking on
“Rock Physics and Seismic Data used in Characterization of Source Rock Reservoirs”. Sign up at http://www.dgsdallas.org/en/cev/368

The
15th Annual Crawfish Cookout is also scheduled for Thursday, April 17, from 5-11 pm at Winfrey Point on White Rock Lake. Sign up by April 11. More information and signup instructions are on our website at http://www.dgsdallas.org/en/cev/412

Our final Luncheon of the 2013-2014 season, the
Annual General Meeting and Awards Luncheon, is scheduled for Thursday, May 15, with David Monk, SEG Past President, speaking on “Geophysical Technology Changes from the View of an Oil Company”.

DGS Members will be asked to cast their ballots after the April Luncheon to vote on our slate of officers for the 2014-2015 term. Our President-Elect, Don Macpherson, presented the initial slate of nominees at the March Luncheon. Additional nominees are encouraged, with the nominee's consent -- please forward me the name and contact information, along with 10 member signatures, as per our Bylaws.

A reminder -- save the date for the
2014 Joint DGGS Holiday PartyThursday, December 11! We had a great Party last year at the Perot; this year’s Party will be new and different and just as much fun!

As usual, check back here on our website for updates and more information on these and other upcoming events.
