David Robertson Smelting Symposium

'Celebrating the Mega-scale'

In conjunction with the TMS 2014 Annual Meeting

San Diego, California, USA, 16-20 February 2014

Social Programme

High Spirits

The three-hour Dinner Cruise on Monday evening, 17 February, starts at the Marriott Marina (right at the Conference Hotel) at 5:45 pm. Tickets cost $130 per person. It should be a memorable experience to cruise San Diego harbor and recognise David Robertson and his wife Ruth. The ship we will be sailing is the 'High Spirits'. She is a sister ship to Franklin D. Roosevelt's presidential yacht 'Sequoia'.

If you have already registered for the conference, but not booked for the Dinner Cruise, you can do so by altering your Registration as follows:
Click the 'Register' button for the TMS Meeting on the TMS web-site (see below); on the next page there is a category at the bottom for those 'Already registered'. Enter your e-mail address and confirmation number, and move through the pages (by clicking Continue) until you find the 'Robertson Honorary Dinner' under 'Social Function Tickets'. Indicate the number of tickets you need and then 'Continue'. Later you will be asked for the additional payment.
