Minutes of the March 13, 2006 Meeting
Smoky Mountain AMS Chapter

Everyone met at the WATE-TV 6 studios in Knoxville around 5:45 p.m. to watch the live production of the evening's newscast. There was severe weather in the area at the time, which made for an interesting evening watching how TV meteorologists do their job. After the newscast, Matt Hinkin showed us how he puts together his weather segment using the different computers and weather data. Matt then conducted a tour of the entire studio (including some history of the Greystone Mansion where the studio is housed), and showed everyone how the entire newscast is produced behind the scenes. After the newscast tour, everyone moved to Barley's Taproom in the Old City of Knoxville for dinner.

Officer elections were held the week before (by email) with David Gaffin elected as President, Matt Hinkin as Vice-President, and Ernie Roberts as Treasurer/Secretary.
