The STC Rochester Chapter kicked off the 2015-2016 program year on Wednesday, September 2 with “Take a Techcomm Professional Out to the Ballgame.” Thirty members and guests joined the 10,069 fans who saw the Rochester Red Wings defeat the first place Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders, 8 to 1, ending the RailRiders’ bid for the International League North Division title.
It was unusually warm at 84 degrees, under partly cloudy skies. Plenty of one dollar specials from food vendors ensured everyone shared a meal during networking before the game. Brochures were provided for potential members and everyone talked about the coming year and the advantages of membership in the Rochester Chapter.
The minor league baseball website has the stats on the game, capturing the experience for attendees and those who missed the event alike–in a useful format for technical communicators!
