Topics will include:
8th Annual Golf Tourney
Spread the word! The 8th annual WNY Photonics Golf Tournament will be held on July 17th at Shadow Lake and Shadow Pines Golf Clubs in Penfield NY.
Last year's event raised $14,500 for a total thusfar of $43K to benefit the Golisano Children's Hospital at Strong.
The participation from WNY photonics companies, their suppliers and and friends, as well as companies from as far away as Opto Sigma in California made the event another rousing success. Ron and Diane Schulmerich are looking for volunteer committee members to help organize this year's event. The organization of the tourney has become more challenging each year with the increasing participation. They are in of a need of a little help from their friends!! We also want to get an early start on soliciting larger corporate sponsors this year.

APOMA Workshop in November, 2008
The APOMA board has approved a 2 day workshop to be held in Tucson, AZ this November 17th & 18th at the new Optical Science building at the University of Arizona. The workshop will cover a variety of topics on optical fabrication such as Scratch Dig, diamonds, testing, optical tolerances, pitch and polishing pads, presentations by optical machine builders on the latest equipment, and much more.
According to Jim Sydor, current APOMA President, "The goal is to run the workshop in different parts of the country every other year so as not conflict with OPTIFAB. Once the agenda is finalized we will post it on the APOMA website."
