Contractors exchanged hammers for golf clubs recently for a fun event at Antelope Country Club sponsored by Carhart Lumber.
Marketing Director Haylie Babl invited contractors from the store locations in Neligh. Tilden and O'Neill to spend a recent afternoon at the Neligh golf course. Making this a little different than most events is that vendors were set up at various holes showing contractors their products and offering fun games for prizes.
"Having the vendors here adds fun to each hole," Babl said. "It lightens the mood a little bit and takes the seriousness off of the actual golf. Some have games set up at the holes, and each vendor has given us a pin prize."
Fifty-four golfers participated in the event. JamesHardie Siding served as title sponsor while BPI of Sioux Falls was the beverage and food sponsor.
"All of these vendors are here to show their appreciation to our contractors who use their products every day, so it's nice to have them all here to see each other face to face, get to know each other and say thank you." Bable said. "This is a contractor appreciation event, and we're able to do this because of our great vendors."
Babl said the entire company is putting on similar events throughout the summer to get all of their contractors involved and to say thank you.
