Golfing for a Good Cause

When you play golf at the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio, you’ll also help send a student to college. Sign up for the College of Fellows golf outing and your donations will go to the College of Fellows scholarship fund. You could win $25,000 on the grand prize hole. If you miss the big prize, you can win a great gift on another of the many contest holes.

This gorgeous 18-hole championship course, designed by PGA Tour golfing legend Greg “The Shark” Norman with Sergio Garcia, offers golfers the total PGA Tour experience. The course design reflects the Tour’s departure from a modern style course to a more intimate design with a natural look and feel that highlights the rolling hills of San Antonio Hill Country.

Host to the Tour's Valero Texas Open, the par-72 course features a traditional design that balances narrow tree-lined fairways with wider fairways, and offers multiple routes to the green. The intimate design includes narrow corridors carved through oak trees and native grasses and plants throughout. The 7,435 yard course has forced carries on only two holes. Downhill holes play into the prevailing wind and uphill holes play downwind. A variety of Bermuda grasses especially selected for the course provide optimum playing conditions.

Don’t miss this opportunity to join your SMACNA friends for some fun and to support this worthy cause!

FEATURED SPEAKER

Dan Gable

Recognition Lunch
Monday, October 13, 2014
11:45 AM

Olympic champion. National champion. World champ. Discover the wisdom of one of the world’s great Olympians and coaches, Dan Gable, during Monday’s Recognition Lunch at SMACNA’s 71st Annual Convention in San Antonio, Texas.

It’s safe to say that this Golden Olympian—an honor bestowed upon the top 100 U.S. Olympians of all time—knows something about winning on a massive scale. This unstoppable wrestling champion and coach has learned something about excellence, perseverance, and determination. You’ll hear what Mr. Gable has to say about this and overcoming setbacks, individual and team domination—and more.

“Eventually I will find ways to learn and be better from whatever happens in my life,” Mr. Gable notes, “understanding that on every setback, there is one less chance of having another that is similar. Of course, this means fewer setbacks and more of an opportunity for success.”

Compiling an unbelievable record of 182-1 during his prep and college careers, he was a two-time NCAA National Wrestling Champion, three-time All-American, and three-time Big Eight champ. He won a gold medal at the 1972 Munich Summer Olympics without surrendering a single point to any of his opponents.

As a coach, he taught his wrestlers how to be great. As the University of Iowa's all-time winningest coach, he won 15 NCAA National Wrestling Team titles while compiling a career record of 355-21-5. Leading U.S. teams in international competition, Mr. Gable is a three-time Olympic head coach, six-time World Team head coach, and led 10 World Cup teams to gold medals.

He was named the top wrestler of the 20th Century by Gannett News Service and listed as one of the top coaches of the 20th Century by ESPN. You’ll learn how to bring out the champion in you at Monday’s Recognition Lunch.

The next time you hop in the car, you might want to think twice before reaching for your cell phone. Safety expert David Teater will tell you why—and hold you spellbound—during the spouse breakfast, Tuesday, Oct. 14, at SMACNA’s Annual Convention in San Antonio.

He will take you on a meaningful journey as he shares the history of mobile communications, the science of distraction, the profound impact of distracted driving on our safety, and solutions to the problem.

A fascinating speaker and storyteller, Mr. Teater will explain that driving is much more than “eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.” You will come away from this riveting session knowing exactly what you can do to educate and protect your family and friends.

As the National Safety Council’s senior director of transportation initiatives, Mr. Teater leads advocacy initiatives to reduce deaths and injuries associated with distracted driving. In addition, he speaks frequently on the subject, and has testified before state legislatures and the U.S. Congress.
