Clean Classic Proves to be a Fun Summer Break
Clean Classic Proves to be a Fun Summer Break

With just over 40 golfers, a terrific venue, and great food -- NEFA’s Bradley Friel Memorial Clean Classic was another terrific event!  

Cleaners and vendors from around the NEFA area were on hand to enjoy a day filled with competition, prizes, food, and fellowship.  Golfers were treated to donuts in the morning donated by Klemms Bakery in Windham, NH, and a terrific buffet dinner sponsored by AristoCraft Supply.  The golf course was in terrific condition, and the sun shined for most of the day.  Unfortunately, severe rain and thunderstorms raced in at the very end of the tournament and a couple groups missed out on their final 2 holes.  Not to worry -- the bar was open, the scoring adjusted, and the fun didn’t stop.

After golf, attendees enjoyed the sun and had a few drinks as people had the chance to reconnect with old friends and make some new ones.  We had people join from all over the area, and from as far away as Wisconsin and Alabama.

“This was really a great day,” observed Ed Ziegler of Continental Girbeau, Event Sponsor & Player, “and I really loved seeing everyone enjoying themselves and having fun.  I loved it and really look forward to coming back again next year.  I met some new potential customers and got to spend some time with some current clients.  Couldn’t ask for more.”

“It is important,” reflected Peter Blake, “to maintain the social relationships within the industry and to get to know your peers.  Sometimes I fear we have lost a little of the camaraderie in the industry, but after events like this, it reaffirms just how valuable these types of events can be.  People get the opportunity to share experiences, challenges, and have a chance to know they are not alone in the industry.  I can’t express my gratitude enough to the sponsors of the event.  These companies continually support our members -- and really the entire industry. 

Plans are already underway for the 2020 Clean Classic. Initial plans are to return to Cyprian Keyes for another year, but we are always on the lookout for potential new sites.  If you know of a course you think may fit our needs, contact Peter Blake at the NEFA Office.
