Nexio, Avalara, and GPS Capital Markets hosted the Direct Sales Golf Scramble on Friday, August 28, 2020, at Thanksgiving Point. For those who are not familiar, a 4-man scramble is a golf format where four players form a team, and all players contribute to the team score, rather than the score of each individual.
Each member of the winning team received a nice prize, plus each will also receive a Championship Belt – custom engraved to commemorate the Direct Sales Scramble event! Each subsequent year, teams are encouraged to beat the past year’s winning team to take the title (and the belt) home for the next year!
This golf event provided an excellent opportunity for networking and socializing for those who work in the direct sales market. We followed the COVID-19 restrictions, including social distancing, not touching the hole flag, providing individually packaged breakfast, lunch, and drinks, and encouraging masks when inside the clubhouse.
Whether the golfers were shanking, slicing, or hitting the ball straight on, everyone enjoyed the tournament. Players exchanged friendly banter and old-fashioned teasing. We heard of several balls ending up in the river or lost in the weeds and others proclaiming they nailed it! Overall, this was a great day for golfing.
A shout out to our co-sponsors and to the many players who attended. We hope to see you next year.
