If you were not inside the Orange County Convention Center tonight for GIS's Closing Celebration presented in partnership with John Deere Golf, well, you missed quite a photo-bomb opportunity.
To conclude a spectacular week, which included more than 13,000 GIS attendees, none other than GCSAA CEO Rhett Evans, newly-elected president Bill Maynard, CGCS, and Board of Directors member John Walker participated in a skit with closing celebration talent Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood from the TV show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
Earlier, it was announced that Penn State No. 10 (pictured) won the annual Turf Bowl, edging out second-place Cal Poly Pomona. Penn State received a check for $4,000 for its victorious achievement.
Before he exited at the conclusion of the evening, UMass senior Andrew Travers, who participated on stage with Mochrie and Sherwood in a skit, summed up his night. And, his week.
"It's been a great week. I can't pick one moment that was best. Tonight was neat," said Travers, 4-year GCSAA member, "but, just being here in general, honestly, is what stands out. I am grateful to be part of this industry."
