Aerosol industry leaders from across the eastern U.S. trekked to Vernon, NJ for the Eastern Aerosol Association’s (EAA) annual Golf Outing on Tuesday, August 5th. Over 50 people attended the all-day event at Crystal Springs Golf Resort, nestled in the quiet rolling hills of northwest New Jersey’s picturesque Kittatinny Valley.

Apart from completing 18 holes in shotgun format, the guests enjoyed a buffet lunch, putting contest and dinner/cocktail hour complete with raffle prizes and skill awards.

The winning scramble foursome, with a cumulative score of 11 under par, was Charlie Ortmann and Brock Manner, Diversified CPC; and Bart Bastian and Nikko Lavey, Spray Products Corp.

The winners barely edged out the second place team (-10) of Joe Everard, Unilever; Sean Fitzgerald, Cobra Plastics; Brent Stine, Barbasol; and Dennis Smith, Precise Packaging.

The two “closest to the pin” winners were Buddy Carhart, EXAL and John Gruver, Unilever. Joe Everard, and Nick Fluet, Unilever, won awards for longest drives.

Finally, a hotly-contested putting competition was won–after six rounds of tiebreakers–by Kevin Lynch of Falcon Safety Products.
