GIS in full swing

So much action already today, and things just really gut busy for me tomorrow.

 - Went to a Phoenix UPI meeting, where they talked about changes to the company since the acquisition by UPI. Owen Towne raved about the possibilities of the company now that is was a UPI business. UPI has grown 29% in the last year. "It's still the same customer service," Towne told the group. "It's still Sharon doing our customer service. Only the last few letters of her email have changed."
- Popped into the Syngenta media reception, where Stephanie Schwenke, golf market manager, talked about Daconil Action. Bombed their boxing quiz that they gave everyone while I caught up with all of my media brethren. Chatted with Bob Goglia -- he golfed this weekend in Vegas with his 79-year-old dad.
- Saw about 100 supers I knew as I ran from one corner of the convention center to the other. Sorry that I had a cell phone attached to my ear!
- Got the Golfdom booth set up for tomorrow...

Speaking of tomorrow... we'll be presenting our Herb Graffis Business Person of the Year Award to Paul Chojnacky tomorrow at 10:45. Come see Paul and say hi!
