Meeting Wednesday Highlights the Wells Burt PDF Print E-mail

Hey Everybody,

Sorry for the late notice, but the next meeting of UASC will be this 
Wednesday, June 26th, at the LifeStorage / Helix building, 310 S. Racine 
at Jackson. As usual, light refreshments will start at 6:30, business 
at 7:00, and the main speaker around 8:00.

Our speaker for this month's meeting will be Keith Pearson, Past 
President and Founding Member of UASC, speaking on the Wells Burt. Keith 
was one of the original discoverers of the Wells Burt, as part of A & T 
Recovery, back in 1988, and was then one of the major surveyors of the 
wreck as part of UASC's first big survey project in the late 1980s and 
early 1990s. Keith will talk about the history of the wreck, the 
condition it is in now, and lead a discussion of what if anything should 
be done about it next, 25 years after its original discovery by A & T.

If anyone has anything they would like put on the agenda, please let me 
know by return e-mail.

Thanks, and I hope to see you all there on Wednesday,

John
