Golf Tournament and Clinic A Success!

This past weekend we had a great time hosting our first golf tournament and equipment clinic! We had 88 golfers play in our tournament at Dell Urich Golf Course here in Tucson. We had a very successful raffle and auction after the tournament.

The next day, we had 37 people attend our first ever equipment clinic. We had one come all the way from Hawaii. We also had numerous attend from California and Colorado. We are already looking forward to more clinics in the future.

We had many former Wildcat athletes play in our golf tournament, including Max Zendejas and George Arias:We had great support from equipment managers all over the country:

We had hundreds of items sent to us from equipment managers all over the country for our raffle after the tournament:

We had awesome items donated to us from all over the country, some we used in a silent auction:

My lovely wife, Cindy, handled all registration for the clinic:

We had nice name tags for all of our attendees:

Tom Boesel from our staff did a GREAT workshop on Embellishing, and he had Stahl's Cad Cutter and other items to illustrate how we use the products. This is a picture of the Cad Cutter:

Welcome Kelly Sharitt and the Utah Utes

We are excited about having Kelly Sharitt, Utah Equipment Manager, and J.T. Galloway, former UofA assistant equipment manager and head equipment manager at Colorado to the conference.

Also, I would like to thank Dan Vooletich and Marty Cothern of Riddell for coming in yesterday to help us fit our new players in helmets and shoulder pads! These two guys fit many of the NFL teams and players, and they were nice enough to come assist us.

They are also speaking at our clinic which is tomorrow.

Everyone have a GREAT weekend!
