For entertainment this year we had Sid Manning,Provincial Administrator Plumbing and Gas at Alberta Municipal Affairs, who after some delay with a technical difficulty gave a talk on codes and some of the strange installations he saw in the field.
The technical difficulty was that Garry Alexander’s computer (Being almost as old as him) did not have the program to show Sid’s presentation, but Sid being well experienced in difficulties, abandoned Garry’s laptop and used his own. It pays to rehearse and to be up to date.
After dinner, there much socializing and tall tales.
