GATES EVENT WITH STAN WATERMAN
October 31, 2007 - 7:30PM
John Ellerbrock, Karen Ellerbrock, and Pamela Mazey Metz of Gates Housings hosted a private gathering on the evening of the 31st featuring the legendary Stan Waterman. Stan presented a retrospective of video shot by himself and his assistant, Nancy McGee, using Sony HDV cameras in Gates underwater housings. As usual, Stan’s video presentation and accompanying commentary was excellent, and included quite a few humorous moments that made us laugh out loud.
I didn’t know everyone there, but in addition to Stan and the Gates folks, Eli and I sampled fantastic food with Berkley White, Jim Decker, Bret and Gretchen Gilliam, Mike Luzanski, Sally Thomson, Allan Millham, Rick Belmare, Joe Holley, Alexx Edwards, and others. I believe Stan referred to the gathering as being “first-class,” and I couldn’t agree more. Special thanks to Gates Housings for hosting such a wonderful event.
Eli and I stook out quite a bit in our orange Halloween costumes. But that’s OK. :)
