Southern California Chapter Hosts Successful Summer Social
By IIBEC Southern California Chapter Industry Director Arturo Ortiz, Jr.
The IIBEC Southern California (So Cal) Chapter (formerly the So Cal Chapter of RCI, Inc.), hosted their annual Membership Drive & Summer Social on August 1, 2019, at Splitsville – Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA.
For the first time, the chapter held their event at a bowling alley as a fun way for the community to get together, mingle, and knock down some pins! Splitsville graciously hosted approximately 52 guests, many of whom participated in the exciting and outrageously fun bowling tournament. Attendees escaped the evening heat while enjoying delicious appetizers and food, refreshing beverages, and of course, great company. IIBEC So Cal Chapter President Kyle Eazor led the evening with a warm welcome for all in attendance, including some chapter news updates and rallying potential speakers for our fall lineup of technical dinner meetings. The event offered the opportunity for members and nonmembers to network and socialize in a casual and interactive open setting, while enjoying some good, competitive team bowling.
Even though everyone was a winner for showing up, the chapter recognizes Ryan Garcia and Joseph Schettino for achieving the highest and lowest scores of the tournament – they won’t say who got which. Ryan and Joseph took home the grand prizes: complimentary registrations to either one of IIBEC So Cal Chapter’s big 2020 events—their 20th anniversary Hawaii Winter Workshop in January, or their 18th Annual Golf Tournament in April. Congratulations, gentlemen.
The IIBEC So Cal Chapter members appreciate everyone who made the time to attend and help make the IIBEC So Cal Chapter Membership Drive & Summer Social a wonderful and truly memorable experience. They would like to especially thank the event’s refreshment sponsor, Brian Carrillo, with Encore Building Products.
