Comments from the President of the Dallas Geophysical Society

September 2019 President's Letter

Dear Members,

On behalf of the Board of Directors, let me say “Thank you” for allowing us to serve as your Dallas Geophysical Society BOD for the 2019-2020 term. We’re excited to start back and look forward to your participation throughout the year.

Our first event this term was a joint Fall Membership Social with the Dallas Geological Society on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 at BJ’S Brewhouse in Dallas, TX. It was a great time to network and socialize with G&G professionals from across the metroplex and we encourage everyone to join us next year. A special thanks to our geophysical sponsors, Dawson Geophysical and  Seisware, for their generous contributions to the event. And remember, you can always renew your membership on our website:

We’re changing up the luncheon schedule quite a bit this year and working with the Dallas Geological Society to provide a great slate of talks for 2019-2020. To this end, we will take turns hosting our luncheons this term with the following schedule:

SEP 2019 - Dallas Geological Society
OCT 2019 - Dallas Geophysical Society
NOV 2019 - Dallas Geological Society
JAN 2020 - Dallas Geophysical Society
FEB 2020 - Dallas Geological Society
MAR 2020 - Dallas Geophysical Society
APR 2020 - Dallas Geological Society
MAY 2020 - Dallas Geophysical Society

The Dallas Geological Society will host their first talk of the term on Thursday, September 19th at Brookhaven College in Farmers Branch, Texas. Dwayne Purvis will speak on New Dynamics of the Natural Gas Market. Mr. Purvis is a great, entertaining speaker, so we encourage you to attend if you can. Register on the Dallas Geological Society here:

Our first Dallas Geophysical Society hosted luncheon will be on Tuesday, October 8th at Brookhaven College in Farmers Branch, Texas and sponsored by Seisware. Please note the day-of-the-week when scheduling to attend. We are welcoming back Dr David Lumley, UT Dallas, by popular demand and we’ll be sending out more information as we near the date, so be sure to add our Dallas Geophysical Society email addresses to your contacts so you don’t miss our e-blasts: and Dr Lumley is constantly researching new geophysical technologies and we look forward to hearing him speak again!

On October 28, 2019, we will have our 44th Annual Dallas Geophysical Society Golf Tournament at Texas Star Golf Course in Euless, TX. Registration and sponsorship information is available on our website, so please register and sponsor here: We had an excellent turnout last year and hope to see many familiar and new faces on the course!

We have one more save-the-date for those who plan in advance. Our Second Annual Sporting Clay Classic will be held at Elm Fork Shooting Sports on Saturday, April 4, 2020. Mark it down now! Registration and sponsorship information will go out following our Golf Tournament in October. We expect registration numbers to grow significantly from last year, so please be sure to plan your budgets now!

Again, thank you for allowing us to serve our local geophysical community. We look forward to seeing you at the Dallas Geological Society hosted luncheon later this month!
