President’s Corner September 2016Greetings fellow Skalleagues!
Fall is almost upon us. At least that’s what the calendar says! I truly hope everyone is able to put a strong finish on 2016 as we enter the last quarter.
A giant thank you goes out to our friends at the Tampa Airport Marriott for hosting us this month. Everything was outstanding! From the cocktail hour and appetizers, to the dinner presentation and dessert. Our market is truly fortunate to have so many outstanding options that serve our number 1 industry!
Congratulations go out to our raffle winners: Kathy Fischer won the 50/50 draw while John and Karin Donadeo won a $50 gift certificate to The Sail Restaurant and golf for 2 at Tampa Bay TPC. (Probably should have shaken the tickets up better!) And Tessa Hubbard took home a one night stay at the Airport Marriott.
I strongly encourage everyone to get their reservations in for our October meeting at the Opal Sands on Clearwater Beach. It promises to be an evening to remember and if you have yet to see this property, prepare to be WOWed! Please note that this meeting is on TUESDAY October 4. Not our normal Monday. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Opal Sands!
Yours in SKAL,
