Media members duke it out for good at GIS 2013

Editors of industry publications were given the chance to compete for up to $2,000 on behalf of their choice of charity.

| February 11, 2013

To end GIS on a “good” note, members of the golf turf media battled it out in a round of “Superintendent Pyramid: Media for Charity” on Thursday, Feb. 7 at the Golf Industry Show in San Diego. The competition was put on and held at the BASF booth. Two team members from five publications; Superintendent, Golfdom, Golf Course Management, TurfNet, and our own Golf Course Industry; picked one of six categories offered in BASF’s pyramid. They were then given 30 seconds for one teammate to describe a word to the other teammate, similar to the game Catchphrase.

When the dust settled, GCI’s  Kyle Brown and Heather Tunstall came out on top yet again, going six for six and winning $2,000 for the USO. Golf Course Management and TurfNet each won $1,750 for the charities Wee One Foundation and Chopin Hall respectively. Superintendent magazine won $1,350 for Brother’s Brother Foundation and Golfdom won $1,100 for Disabled American Veterans. Overall,  BASF donated $7,950 to various charities.
