Randy Smith Memorial Golf Classic – October 2014
The 20th Annual Industry Specific charity event, the RSMGC, was held in the Atlanta suburbs recently. This unique event is an exhibit industry tradition that brings members of the exhibit community in from across the country to participate and contribute to a great cause.
We recently had the honor of attending our first “Randy” event and were moved by the generous amount of emotional and financial support the event provides to industry families in need. Held at the beautiful Chateau Elan, outside of metro Atlanta, the evening event was an enjoyable and heart warming experience championed by founder Rich Johnson. The creative energy and compassion Rich brings to the event is impressive and his annual film series is quite memorable. The afternoon golf outing is the big event and another worthwhile experience we’ve been yearning to attend. So for next year’s Randy our calender is set and we’ll be bringing our clubs.

These are inter dynamic issues crucial to shaping winning concepts. It will be great to grow our skills and bring more insight home to our clients.
I’ll be posting some random updates from the EDPA ACCESS 2012 and looking to keep it interesting and relevant. I’m also looking forward to seeing industry friends, meeting new peers and partners. We’ll also be introducing our talents and design services to builders. We had great success recently, winning the EDPA Midwest’s Designers Challenge, and would love to show more companies what we can do for them. See our 1st place concept here.
Escaping the impending mid-western winter seems like a great idea too. Maybe I’ll see you out there!
