Eastern Division Meeting

The next meeting of the Eastern Division T&O will be held on August 25 at Vesuvius, Foseco Place, 4604 Campbells Run Road Pittsburgh, PA, 15205. Tel:(1) 412 276 1750. ALL SFSA members are invited.

The format of the meeting will be slightly different, we will start with the meeting in the morning followed by a tour of the Vesuvius R&D facility after lunch. The R&D facility addresses the development of refractories for all hot metal applications.

It is recommend that we stay at the Marriott - Pittsburgh Airport hotel

It is located just a few minutes from the Airport, they have a shuttle service, and you should be able to get the Vesuvius rate of $99/night. If you have any problems with getting that rate please advise let me now and we will address the situation.

The Marriott to Vesuvius Research map and driving directions from the Hotel to Vesuvius is available here. [184kB pdf] Vesuvius will be arranging for shuttle transportation from the Marriott to Vesuvius.
