March, 2013

This is time of year for the NRC’s Regulatory Information Conference” and BT will be there. Look for Bernie and say hello, it is probably the last time you will see him limping along with the bad hip. It would also be a good time to find out where the “A Team” is with Used Fuel Management and the Equipment Inventory we are building!!! Can you spell Doerfer Wheelift ?

Alex Hay was at Millstone March 7th, I wonder what that was about?

Our home away from home! Cooper Nuclear Station

Get off Interstate 29 at the Rockport Exit and travel West on Highway 139. When you cross the wide Missouri River the first road on your left is County Road 648A take the turn and follow the road around until you reach the end of the stand of trees. (If you arrive in the spring you will no doubt understand the meaning of the “wide Missouri”.) There you will see a driveway and a sign saying Brownville RV Park and River Inn Resort. Try it you will love it. It is the best place to stay in the area and you can walk to Cooper Station from there. Be sure to allow your self enough time to enjoy the gourmet breakfast.  They are beyond good and included in the price of the room, even better!!! Maybe we will see you there one of these days!!!

The “A Team” attended the USA Conference in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado the week of June 12th through June 15th, 2012. The USA conference as always was a complete success on the venue it presented. We arrived before the fires were present and the beautiful state of Colorado was defiled with the Shootings. BT did not have a booth this year but was able to roam the floor and meet and greet several of the upper management staff of our Clients and friends. It was as usual an outstanding opportunity to renew friendships and create new ones.


Remember next years USA Conference is at The Homestead Resort, Hot Springs, Virginia, June 4th through June 7th, 2013.
