Golf and Tennis Tournaments Provide Unique Networking Experiences

We had a great golf tournament today - weather was excellent, but for a little wind. We had a full house and a robust competition. First place went to the team of Jeffrey Cohen, Bill Forrest, Mark Reynolds and Jim Whitney, with a score of 69. Second place went to Henry Baer, Amy Lynne Long and Mike Von Lehman with a score of 70 (they won the tie breaker since there were two teams at 70). Third place went to David Baker, Don Giuseppi, Tom Pabst and Robert Schwartz, also with a score of 70.

There were two skills competitions - one each for women and men. The closest to the pin was won by Maria Chang and Greg Hengehold. Long drive was won by Maria Chang and Dan Kerrigan.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all who participated.

A special mention and thanks to our golf tournament sponsor, Hilco. Thanks also go to Cole Taylor Business Capital and Myron Bowling Auctioneers for sponsoring our refreshment cart. Lastly, thank you to O'Keefe & Associates and Anderson Bauman Tourtellot Vos & Company for their hole sponsorships.

TMA also held a tennis tournament at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes. Congratulations to the first place winners, Peter Seckel and Richard Hauer, and the second place winners, Morten Kucey and Paul Kelly.

For both the golf and tennis tournament participants, this was a great way to start the 2010 convention experience and to spend quality time together. We look forward to a great 2010 TMA Annual Convention.
