Hello,

Welcome to the BABC - Houston newsletter of upcoming events, articles, jobs and more from our membership.


RBS 6 Nations RugbySaturday kicks off the much anticipated (at least for some of us) 6 Nations Rugby BABC Member Big John's Sports Bar has purchased the entire tournament package and will be open at 7:30 am tomorrow serving a proper Irish breakfast. Terms of the contract with the carrier require the establishment to charge $20 at the door for the the day. The first weekend schedule is below.

 

Saturday           Feb 1                08:30am                       Wales vs Italy

Saturday           Feb 1                11:00pm                       France vs England

Sunday             Feb 2                9:00am                       Ireland vs Scotland



And, speaking of rugby, I have been privileged to be ask to sit on the Houston Sports Authority planning committee for the USA vs. Scotland match at BBVA Compass Stadium in June. It looks like there will be some new and quite posh hospitality opportunities available. We will keep you updated on that.



Please note the newest event on the Calendar. BABC has initiated a new luncheon speaker series British American Business: Energy. This first in this series will be 12 March at the Marriott Westchase.


Ed Rawle, Chief Economist with Wood Mackenzie, will answer the question, "How important is the resource boom to the US economy?". Registration is open and sponsorship are available.



BABC's Strategic Alliance Roundtable (StAR) February meeting is next Friday on the 7th, 7:30 am. February's presenter will be Chance Graham of Storyteller Promotions. He will be speaking on how to grow your business through corporate events. The event is hosted at the EIC. Breakfast is sponsored by the Holiday Inn Energy Corridor.
