St. Louis needs golfers

Got a note today from Rick Drake, who's running the Alarm Association of Greater St. Louis' 5th annual golf tournament, and could use a hand. The proceeds of the tournament "are to assist and benefit our local chapter alarm association, members and other interested parties in the mechanics of starting and maintaining an accredited industry apprenticeship program to learn the necessary skills that would enable them to work in the alarm industry." I agree with Rick, George Gunning, and a number of others that a pipeline for new talent into the industry is important. The event is Oct. 6, at Pevely Farms, which is apparently a very nice course, starting at 8 a.m. If you're interested in playing or sponsoring the event, you can find Rick at 636.349.2442 Ext. 301 or email Sounds like there's a good St. Louis BBQ involved, too.
