AIAVT's 2020 Guy Teschmacher Memorial Golf Tournament
This year's AIAVT Guy Teschmacher Memorial Golf Tournament was a unique opportunity to host a fun and safe event during the year of social distancing. Players gathered with masks on at the Stowe Country Club on Thursday, August 20th. Many enjoyed the opportunity to see friends and colleagues in person, now a novelty since all meetings went virtual in March of this year.
One of our long standing players and sponsors, Bob Neeld shared his thoughts "I have enjoyed the AIA golf outings for several years. Even the one where Rolf Kielman placed a large divot on my head- complete with photographic evidence to be revived many months later in a most embarrassing situation! Engineering Ventures sponsors this event as our way of giving back to the architectural community that has supported us for the last 25 years, but also, because it is a great way to interact with so many of the architects that have become good friends in a fun, laid back setting that promotes comradery. It’s fun, It’s golf, and it is supporting a good cause."
Thanks to our event photographer, Michael Hoffman, AIA/ Studio X, who captured team photos, candids, and some putting contest action shots, which can be seen here.
