On Monday night, NAEC did an experiment and invited a bunch of Atlanta area elevator types to join them in a luxury box at Turner Field. The least exciting part was the one to nothing loss of the Braves to the Pirates. There was no defense needed on the field because there was no offence. So we pretty much ignored the field.
But the rest was a ball. There were 34 attendees all together. NAEC contractor, supplier, and consultant members got a chance to rub shoulders on a beautiful Atlanta evening. Most of the NAEC staff was also able to be there. The environment, food, drink, and company were all outstanding. A very fun night. I wish I had taken some pictures.
GALaxy controls have a great presence in the Atlanta area. Either Lerch Bates or Premier Elevator deserves the credit for firmly anchoring GALaxy as the control of choice in these parts. I got a chance to thank Tim Murphy of LBA, and Phil Reid, Hugh Bertchin, and Robert Barber of Premier Elevator all in the same evening.
Based on the popularity of this event, NAEC is looking for opportunities to host similar member get togethers in other cities / venues. If you think that something like this might go over well in your area, you ought to give Teresa a buzz and plant the seed with her.
A great time was had by all.
