After a busy Holiday season and start to the New Year, February 2004 is already here. I am continually looking for industry information to include in the Grapevine. If you have news on office moves, corporate parties, industry events or press releases, please send them my way.
Sigma Hosts 28th Annual Cocktail Party
Talk about traditions! Sigma hosted its 28th annual Cocktail Party with great success! Sigma's long-standing tradition of hosting it on American Thanksgiving makes it one of the mainstays of the geophysical community cocktail party circuit. As always, the highlight was the large number of industry friends and colleagues who gathered to mingle and renew acquaintances. The Calgary Petroleum Club's atmosphere brought the warmth of the season into full swing with their lavish Christmas decor and delectable treats! The beginning of Christmas cheer was enjoyed by one and all. Sigma would like to thank everyone present and send their best wishes to those that were unable to attend.
