Glass Expo Midwest™ 2006 Golf Outing Goes Back to Nature

The golf outing offered at Glass Expo Midwest™ (GEMS) 2006 is filling up fast and looks to challenge even the more avid golfers in the industry.

Event attendees participating in the event the day before the seminars and trade show take place will find themselves playing in the Cook County Forest Preserve, on a course wherein water comes into play on six of the 18 holes. An intermediate challenging course, it has 52 sand traps strategically placed throughout tree-lined fairways. The Preserve has a huge lighted driving range for evening practice and a total of ten courses to play on.

The golf outing is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 at the Highland Woods Golf Course in Schaumburg, Ill. The event, a four-person scramble, has no team restrictions and attendees are invited to "bring your best team."

The event, co-chaired by Dennis Koziel and Pete Pontikis of MTH Industries, will begin at 9 a.m. Registration includes golf cart rental, range balls and lunch, and prizes will be awarded for first place team, longest drive and closest to the pin.

The golf outing takes place the morning of the White Sox/Yankees baseball game to which GEMS attendees are invited to purchase tickets for the patio package, which includes dinner and drinks, two hours prior to the opening pitch.

Glass Expo Midwest begins on Thursday, August 10 with seminars and workshops starting at 8 a.m. at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center in Schaumburg, Ill, a suburb of Chicago. The accompanying trade show floor opens at 3 p.m. on the 10th and at 10 a.m. on Friday, August 11.

Online registration is available for attendees who don't want the hassle of a paper registration and helps attendees avoid the lines of on-site registration.
