Networking Options (See Conference Fees link for pricing)
|Golf Outing||Can there be a networking day without golf? We don’t think so! Enjoy networking with colleagues while golfing at Buffalo Run Golf Course. Buffalo Run Golf Course in Commerce City is an 18-hole championship course with lush rolling greens, expansive fairways and picturesque views of the Rocky Mountains and surrounding prairie lands. Designed by renowned golf course architect, Keith R. Foster, ASGCA. This award-winning course has been recognized locally and nationally as one of the region’s premier golf facilities. Golfers will begin promptly at 8 am and finish around 2 pm. There will be prizes handed out at the end of the day! Registration includes breakfast, golf, lunch, and transportation to and from the hotel. (Limit 96 people)|
|Fly Fishing||Enjoy a private excursion to fly fish in the Rocky Mountains. The group will be at two locations throughout the day: Boxwood Gulch Ranch and Long Meadow Ranch (click the links to see video!). Boxwood Gulch is claimed to be the BEST place to fish in Colorado and offers tremendous diversity of river habitat. At the second location there are 2 miles of supremely restored stream environment with stunning trout life. Types of fish you can find include rainbow trout, browns, cuttbows, Snake River cutthroats, brookies, as well as the exotic tiger and palomino trout. There is always a possibility of hooking a fish that approaches the 10lb mark! What are the top three reasons to do a private fishing trip? 1.) Heavenly trout habitat 2.) More fish and bigger fish 3.) No crowds! The fishing trip includes breakfast, lunch, transportation to and from the hotel, fishing equipment, and license. People partaking in this option will NOT be able to attend the first timers meeting as the bus will not get back to the hotel until 4:30 pm. (Limit 30 people)|
|Fall Leaves Tour||One of nature’s greatest treasures is watching leaves turn color in the fall. Colorado is no exception, as the state is famous for the aspens changing color to a golden yellow. Fortunate for us, fall comes early in the mountains and this networking option will have an incredible opportunity to see entire mountainsides covered in golden aspens. During this 1 hour and 15 minute train ride you will get to sit back, relax, and catch up with fellow conference attendees as the Georgetown Loop train winds through the aspen-filled Rockies between Georgetown and Silver Plume. After the tour, attendees will have lunch at Beau Jo’s another Colorado staple, that started in Idaho Springs 40 years ago. This option includes lunch and transportation to and from the hotel.|
|Brewery Tour & Lunch||Colorado is known for craft beer and incredible scenery. Join conference attendees on a guided bus tour of three breweries in Golden, CO, a historic town nestled in the foothills. First, the group will start with Coors Brewery, which is the brewery’s only facility in the world. This is a self-guided audio tour that will end in the tap room. The group will load the bus and head to New Terrain Brewing Company where attendees will have the opportunity to tour the facility. Lunch will be served at this location. Finally, the group will head to Cannonball Creek Brewing for one last beer before heading back to the hotel.
Includes transportation, lunch, and one beer token for each brewery (3 beers total) – attendees must use the provided bus transportation and cannot drive themselves. (Limit 55 people)
