It was a perfect day in Southern California when 70 AICC members and guests gathered Tuesday, October 1, at Oak Creek Country Club in Irvine, Calif., for the Association’s annual West Coast Golf Tournament.  Pete Kobrak, western region sales manager for BW Papersystems, chaired the event with the assistance of Ron Vivian of Corrukraft and Mark Olafsen of Allan Company.

The winning foursome consisted of Chris Widera, Mike Coughlin, Chris Morales and Mike Schubert, all from CalBox.  Winners were presented with the Hanan-Feterik trophy which recognizes the founders of the annual tournament, the late Bill Hanan of Bay Cities, and Michael Feterik, former owner of Orange County Container.

At the evening awards dinner, Pete Kobrak welcomed members and thanked them for their support of the event and urged them to “bring one more person” next year.  He introduced Jay Carman of Stand Fast Group, AICC’s recently elected chairman, who encouraged members to get engaged with AICC and its activities.  “My father and his partner were founding members of AICC,” he told the group. “Our company can credit much of its growth to the relationships we’ve formed and the industry knowledge we’ve gained through our AICC membership.”

Several sponsors stepped up to assist in underwriting the tournament. They are:  AG Stacker; Sun Automation; Allan Company; Roosevelt Paper; Olympic Wire; Sonoco; Alliance Machine Systems; Bay Cities; Bobst; BW Papersystems; CorruKraft; Encorr Sheets; JB Machinery; Haire Group and ND Paper.
