If you have participated in the past, you already know how much fun this will be. If you have never attended an ISPE Fun Day, you are in for a great surprise!
All participants will start with an 8am complimentary networking breakfast. Bloody Marys and Screwdrivers will also be served (if a sponsor is confirmed). Participants have the choice of golfing or wine tasting. Then at the end of the day, ISPE will host a banquet dinner open to ALL participants to network and reminisce about the day's events.
ISPE has been given exclusive use of the 18-hole Chardonnay and the adjacent 18-hole Eagle Vines golf courses for Fun Day. Conducting the Golf Tournament on 36-holes will speed up play and provide more sponsorship opportunities out on the courses.
We will continue a scramble format where the best shot from each player is used. This format makes the game fun for golfers of all abilities. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams, as well as closest to the pin and longest drive holes on both courses.
Four large coach buses filled with your colleagues and new industry contacts will be visiting Sonoma wineries. Participants start the day with the golfers and sponsors at the networking breakfast at Chardonnay Golf Club. The buses will use a shotgun approach, visiting one winery before lunch and one after lunch. All four winery tour buses will join together at Cline Family Cellars for our famous lobster feed. The lobster feed includes one full lobster for each participant along with prawns, artichokes, potatoes, onions and corn. It's also served with sourdough baguettes and drawn butter. At the end we will have Chocolate It's It Ice Cream Sandwiches.
After lunch, buses go to their last winery of the day before returning to Chardonnay Golf Course. Please note that each participant will visit Cline and two other wineries (selections made by ISPE).
