Ladies Day Luncheon

Book Exchange

The ARTS, CRAFTS AND HOBBIES activity needs your help! 
Ron Smith says  “If you have a hobby, special interest collection, art of any form or a special skill, please consider sharing it with your fellow SIR.  All it takes is an hour before our monthly meeting and we’ll help you get things set up and taken down. In the process you may find a new friend who has your same interest and of course your fellow SIR will appreciate your time and effort.  Give me a call 925-314-3066 or send an e-mail.   All of us old guys like to see stuff and we appreciate people who collect or have a hidden talent or special skill. SHARE it with us. It makes the meeting more interesting and  I’ll even buy you a glass of wine.”

A Brief Bio of our SIR Luncheon Speaker

Monday, May 13, 2019

Cam Inman will be the speaker at our SIR Luncheon on Monday, May 13.

Cam Inman covers sports for the Bay Area News Group, specializing in the 49ers and the NFL. A Bay Area native, he grew up in Cupertino at the same time as Apple Computer, and he turned pro as a sportswriter at age 16.

Cam joined the Contra Costa Times chain in 1995, starting out in Pleasanton covering high schools and youth sports before moving onto the pros in 2000. He’s been a 49ers beat writer in two stints, from 2000-04 and 2011 to the present. He’s also served as a general sports columnist, and a NFL columnist.  Cam is an avid fan of golf, craft beer and, most especially, his three children who have survived his questionable coaching.

Please bring your questions for this fun and interesting discussion at our next luncheon.
