Annual AMA Golf Event
Mike Molloy wins Traveling Trophy
40 golfers and 10-15 others participated in the 2013 Golf Event at Creve Coeur Golf Course and MarketVolt corporate offices on Olde Cabin Road. We enjoyed a glorious day of sunshine and golf on Friday July 5th. Mike Molloy prevailed as champion with a low score of 38 at the tight municipal nine-hole track. Mike was awarded the traveling trophy and pledged to defend his title next year. About half of the golfers (by show of hands) had participated in this event before while half indicated this was their first time participating.
The event owes a debt of gratitude to committee volunteers Bud Menzel (Treetop Enterprises), Jamie Collins (Kent Precision Foods), Dave Cox and Bethany Kellogg (Sandbox Creative), Pat Hawn (MarketVolt), Jeff Snell (iDream Solutions), Kelly Wiethuchter (Centro) and chairman Wes Morgan (Morgan Studio/East). A special thanks to the golf course who again provided tournament conditions and first-rate services to our group.
The American Marketing Association of St. Louis also grateful acknowledges the sponsors Creatives-on-Call, MarketVolt, Sandbox Creative, iDream Solutions and Morgan Studio/East. Golfers, luncheon guests, volunteers and post-game reception/networking guests enjoyed a beautiful sunny afternoon with temperatures in the 80s. Among the field were teams from Digital Intersection (including the remarkable swing of young Eric Mastis), Bolt Restoration (featuring the Purcell brothers), Kent Precision Foods (best dressed team in knickers and caps) and Sandbox Creative (with clients from Unico and CitiMortgage) and Victor Technologies (featuring Tony “Tiger”Tatar).
Among those returning golfers were Bob Mogley of Stealth Creative, Bob Bishop of Bishop & Partners, John Grizzell (Grizzell and Company), Annie McBride (Annie M. Creative), Tom Shaughnessy (Group 360), Rowdy Jones (Compear Design). Michelle Yates (The Lawrence Group), Jeff and Sarah Kirtley (Val Pak). Among the first timers were Nate Bookout (Neu Concept Productions), Don Vail (Horizon Point Strategies), Perry Drake (UMSL professor) and Todd Purcell (recent MBA) and Joyce Bruno who won “longest drive” with a little help from a friendly cart path bounce.
The event tees up a new year for the St. Louis Chapter of the American Marketing Association. It is a tribute to our tradition of advancing the study, practice of marketing and connecting marketers. Thanks to all who participated, volunteered and supported this 15th annual AMA golf event at Creve Coeur Golf Course!
