ABEF Topgolf Outing

Written by NAMA on Friday, February 5, 2016 , 9:29 am

PROB-0061_black+greenhigh resForget what you thought you knew about golf. ABEF is scrapping the traditional golf outing for something a little different this year. Join your peers at Topgolf for a competitive and fun
time everyone can enjoy—no golf experience required.

Here’s how it works… Take a swing at microchipped golf balls, aiming them at targets to rack up the points. Just picture a 240-yard outfield with dartboard-like targets in the ground. You can choose from different games where you aim your golf balls at different colored targets. The closer to the center or “bull’s-eye” you get and the farther out into the field you hit, the more points you receive. Plus, enjoy great drinks and food in an upscale club atmosphere. Fore!

Are you more of a visual person? Check out a video of Topgolf.

Take a look at the website: Topgolf Overland Park

When: Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Where: Topgolf Overland Park

Time: 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Bus will depart the hotel at 2:00 p.m. and be back at 6:00 p.m.

Cost: $100/person

The 2016 Closing Keynote Speaker is living proof that you can totally transform your life and your business if you put others first and find a mentor. Speaking about second chances and overcoming incredible strife, Jim Morris’ story is a testimony that goals can be achieved, even if the odds aren’t in your favor.

Greg Guthrie
Time and Task Management for Busy People
Pre-Conference Workshop
Wednesday, April 13 • 12:30 to 3:00 p.m.
