We like to provide local flair by planning fun excursions for Tuesday afternoon that give people an extra opportunity, once the work and education is over, to network over a fun activity.
This email is to make sure we are all on the same sheet of music when it comes to the Tuesday afternoon agenda! As we mentioned in our last email, the sponsors have really stepped up to add value to each of our 4 formalized networking offerings for Nashville. Over the years, there have been tennis tournaments, golf tournaments, fishing tournaments, tours and excursions and our ever popular Gearhead Tour.
Here are the Tuesday offerings for Nashville that will make the MOST of your EGSA experience:
EGSA Fall Golf Tournament

US Army Corps of Engineers Tour of Old Hickory Lock
EGSA Gearheads love to see an engineering feat or offering in every destination we travel to. Here's something new and exciting for Nashville thanks to our friends at
Nixon Power Services Company
While the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers finalize this exciting opportunity, we will stick to the facts!
Named after President Andrew Jackson (our 7th President), the Lock was named "Old Hickory" just like Jackson's nickname, because of his toughness and brash personality. It is located at Mile 216.2 on the Cumberland River and is approximately 11.5 miles northeast of Nashville. The lock is open to pass navigation traffic 16 hours a day, 365 days a year and closed nightly between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Opened to navigation traffic in June 1954, the lock chamber is 397 feet long and 84 feet wide. During normal lake levels, the lock will lift a boat 60 feet from the river below the dam to the lake above the dam. The lock releases over 15 million gallons of water each time is emptied.

Get Ready for Red, White and Blue at our final reception of the Conference.
Don't forget this when you pack! During the EGSA Closing Reception, we are heading towards the patriotic end of the spectrum! Sponsored by

(Advanced Manufacturing & Power Systems, Inc.), the Closing Reception will feature a Red, White or Blue theme on Tuesday evening, as we hope our attendees will display those three colors in their attire too.
