SIOR Northern California
The torch hit the road to Napa in early
April with a stop with the Northern
California Chapter at the Black Stallion
Winery. SIOR members and guests
gathered for a group shot in front of the
mountain of wine barrels with the torch.
In the end, the barrels, banner, torch,
and all attendees were jostled into
place to commemorate the occasion.
A good time was had by all with great
camaraderie, food, and of course, wine!

visit Atlanta's new professional baseball

Atlanta Falcons football stadium and
continued on to the Atlanta Braves new
Sun Trust Park Baseball Stadium in Cobb
County where the SIOR Torch got a VIP
tour on the field where the video was
panned around the stadium from the
batter’s vantage point at home plate.
The SIOR Torch was then packed up and
sent to Savannah where it overlooked
cargo ships and loading action at the
Savannah Port. From there it received
a wonderful champagne toast from our
chapter members in Savannah gathered
around a live piano player on the lawn
in front of the courthouse.
