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 
Gaylord Springs Golf Links

Get ready for another spectacular EGSA Golf Tournament, sponsored by Blue Star Power Systems! Gaylord Springs, designed by US Open and PGA Champion Larry Nelson, offers challenges for golfers of any skill level. Located 5 minutes from Gaylord Opryland Resort, this course has consistently been recognized among Golf Week's best courses you can play in Tennessee.

Additional Golf Tournament Sponsors include:

Generator Solutions Inc. - Hole-In-One Sponsor
Girtz Industries Inc. - Insulated totes for the course
Diesel Radiator Company - Co-Sponsor of the golf prize gift cards
Clay & Bailey Mfg. Co. - Co-Sponsor of the golf prize gift cards

Honky Tonk Scavenger Hunt & Pub Crawl

Sponsored by Marathon Generators, we pulled out all of the stops when it came to deciding what our third activity would be for Nashville. Get ready for a networking excursion that is truly unique!
First, pick up your box lunch and board our luxury motor coach for a quick ride downtown with your closest EGSA colleagues. This 3-hour scavenger hunt will bring you down Broadway while you search for some unique items with your team.

Each EGSA scavenger hunt team will have to follow the clues provided, allowing them to see all the major sights downtown. Just to keep you on your toes, there are also clues to gathering stops (5).

Join us on the EGSA Scavenger Hunt in Nashville and sign up today! Space is limited to 50 people, act now.

EGSA Fall Fishing Tournament
Percy Priest Lake

EGSA's putting up the 'Gone Fishin' sign on Tuesday! Sponsored by John Deere Power Systems, we are taking the fall competition to Percy Priest Lake, a 42-mile long 14,000 acre U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lake that was created by the J. Percy Priest Dam in 1968.

The Lake is maintained by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. A valid Tennessee fishing license is required for all anglers.

Additional Fishing Tournament Sponsors include:

Diesel Radiator Company - Fishing Tee-shirt Sponsor
Girtz Industries Inc. - Insulated lunch tote

Gearhead Tour
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.
The Tuesday Closing Reception - 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. (AMPS) (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. You can wear a combination of all three, or select one or two. Either way, it will be a nice group photo for Powerline if we are all (casually dressed) in Red, White or Blue!

Join us in Nashville for Megawatts in Music City. We hope you are keeping a beat!

Warm Regards,
Jalane Kellough
