1. A new kind of air hockey We spotted a new sport at the recent GIE+Expo show in Louisville, Ky.: air hockey using 20-volt turbine blowers from Worx Tools to move the “pucks.” Word to the wise: Do not try this game if you want to keep your toupee a secret.

2. Quali-Pros Some of the Quali-Pro guys were upset that their colleague, Paul Blodorn, made back-to-back issues of Golfdom earlier this year. Trying to right the balance are (left to right) Quali-Pro’s John Haguewood and Todd Deitz with Golfdom publisher Craig MacGregor, plus Quali-Pro’s Allan Fulcher, Nick Strain and Jeremy Moore. We’ll see you again in the magazine next month, guys.

4. Media day at No. 4 Golfdom was honored to be included on the national media day guest list for the grand re-opening of Course 4 at Pinehurst (N.C.) Resort. And yes, the event included rounds on No. 2, No. 4, and post-round dinner and drinks at the new Pinehurst Brewery.

5. Back issues ASGCA member Gil Hanse (left) and Bob Farren, CGCS, Pinehurst Resort, show off a back issue of Golfdom that featured Hanse on the cover. Because, you know, we wanted Hanse to remember us so he keeps us on his holiday card list.
