2010 marks the 75thAnniversary of the Society of Petroleum Engineers Gulf Coast Section (SPE-GCS)!  To celebrate 75 years of successful activity as well as our wonderful members and volunteers who serve to make the section as success, SPE-GCS and its Auxiliary Club is hosting a party on November 6, 2010 at Union Station in Minute Maid Park from 7pm-10pm.  To celebrate the achievements of the organization over the past 75 years, the Anniversary Party will highlight three different quarter centuries in separate themed rooms. 
  • The 1935 – 1960 room will be designated as a “Speak Easy” featuring casino tables and a jazz band to correspond to that time period. 
  • The 1960 – 1985 room will feature a dance floor with a live cover band playing songs from the 60s and 70s.
  • The 1985 – 2010 room will be the reception room for attendees to enter.  It will contain large poster spreads of past SPE journal covers highlighting key events over the past 75 years.  It will also feature activities that urge members to relive their favorite oil and gas industry moment or memory to be documented and used for later events.
In addition to SPE members and their guests, we are extending this invitation to other professional organizations as well to help us celebrate this momentous occasion and to help foster more interaction between our societies.  This is a great opportunity for companies to get in front of a large diverse group of people.
