Atlanta Golf Outing Brings Over 60 Industry Pros Together

NADRA’s 2015 Atlanta Golf Outing Brings Over 60 Industry Pros Together

From James Gunning, NADRA Atlanta Chapter President:

I am trilled to recap on Atlanta’s first NADRA golf outing that we had on Monday, June 15th at the Brookfield Country Club in Roswell Georgia. NADRA members showed their support despite the brutal 95-degree temperatures with 100% humidity, on a Monday during the busiest time of year…we still Had 60+ golfers attend what turned out to be a pretty competitive golfing journey.

Festivities began with a shot gun start at 1:00 in the afternoon (peak heat) – so what is the solution to proper hydration supply for the finest NADRA golfers?  20 cases of water and Powerade backed up with plenty of beer and booze of course! I want to give thanks our beverage cart sponsors PMC and Wolmanized Outdoor Wood, as well as all of our official golf outing sponsors:

  • Wolmanized Outdoor Wood
  • PMC Building Supply
  • Boise Cascade
  • Stock Building Supply
  • Screw Products, Inc.
  • Rainaway
  • FastenMaster
  • Trex
  • Fiberon
  • CoolScreens
  • ProWood
  • Metro Building Products
  • Compton Sales
  • MultiView
  • Southeastern Underdeck Systems
  • Decksouth
  • Simpson Strong Tie
  • YellaWood
  • Guardian Building Products
  • UltraLox

Without the support of all our sponsors, local chapter members and the help from NADRA HQ – the Beaudry’s, we could not have pulled off such a fun and well-attended event.

NADRA National Board Member, and active Atlanta member, Heath Bowman said, “The golf outing was great. A lot of us don’t get to see each other outside of chapter meetings. It’s fun to catch up in a different setting and have a good time with friends in the industry. It also helps create awareness. NADRA does a lot for the industry, and many of the guests who played, got a chance to see the benefits of being involved with a group like ours. Obviously, networking is a huge part of it, and all of us work hard to stand out in a very competitive industry. But even more important are the friendships beyond the word. At the end of the day, the work we do is to add enjoyment in the lives of the people we work for. Events like the golf outings are a great reminder that we can have fun while we work hard.”

We finished the evening with a wonderful southern style buffet and awards ceremony.

The blistering weather apparently helped the golf scores heat up. Two teams finished with a score of 55:

  • Team Trex
  • Team Outback 

After a scorecard playoff, Team Outback was given the winners trophy with Team Trex as runners up.

  • On Hole # 3 the closest to the pin award was given to Lamar Lea of Decksouth – 20” from the hole
  • On Hole #15 the closest to the pin award was given to Blake Buckler of PMC – 42” from the hole
  • On Hole #18 the long drive award was given to Ty Nowell of Universal Forest Products   – 348 yds ( ouch! )

Several attendees told me that this golf outing was one of the best they have ever participated in; others (even the country club) could not believe that this was our first tournament.  I was so pleased to hear that the common opinion was that the event was ran extremely well and I’ve got to say, we could not have done that without the help of John Lea and Mike reasons of Decksouth. John, thanks for letting us attend your club. It was fun and I am looking forward to the next one!

See you all August 18th at the Ivy in Bulkhead meeting start at 6:00!
