Broadcast Pioneers Luncheon
Bala Golf Club, Philadelphia
Wednesday, January 17, 2007
Our first luncheon for 2007 was on Wednesday, January 17, 2007. It was a sports panel discussion that was outstanding. It was Philadelphia's Best Sports Broadcast Team; the Broadcast Pioneers Sports Gang!
It all took place on Wednesday, January 17th at the beautiful and historic Bala Golf Club, 2200 Belmont Avenue (across the street from the State Police) in the Wynnefield section of Philadelphia.
Meet and greet (networking) started at 12 noon with a full-course lunch including salad, coffee or tea and dessert being served at 12:30 pm.
This luncheon had the largest attendance for a January luncheon in the history of the organization. We also had a birthday cake. Why? Because it was the 45th birthday of the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia. Now with 306 members; more than in the entire history of our group.
