Second Annual Valuation Expo Cornhole Tournament Announced
After the huge success of our inaugural Valuation Expo Cornhole Tournament we have decided to pack up the boards and bring them back to the Flamingo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for Valuation Expo 2013. Do you have what it takes to win the tourney and bring home the championship?
This year it will be even bigger and better than before. Real Valuation Services who exhibited in San Antonio and will be back on the trade show floor in Vegas will be sponsoring the Cornhole Tourney this year; and defending their title. They are bring more sets of boards to allow more people to play at once and make sure that everyone has a chance to participate and we can make the tournament field even better. When we asked Tom Schurer, Director of Sales & CEO of Real VS, why they chose to sponsor this event at Valuation Expo he responded, "We wanted attendees to affiliate us with the tournament aside from our participation in it – and hopefully see the lighter side to us and how that translates to our team culture. Last year was such a fun atmosphere and a great way to let loose and socialize with everyone."
We are really excited about the Tournament this year and will be offering great prizes again to the winning teams, most creative team name, best costumes and more. There will also be a constellation bracket with prizes, for those that won't go down without a fight. We have already had several people contact us to let us know how much they are looking forward to this upcoming year's tournament. We hope it will be as exciting as last year.
Chancy Beebout, Manager at Appraisal Central in Lakeland Florida, who helped her team come in third place in 2012 had this to say about last year's tournament "I had the best time participating in the Appraisal Buzz Cornhole Tournament at the 2012 Valuation Expo. It was such a great way to meet others attending! I would highly recommend signing up for the fun and excitement and who doesn't like a little healthy competition!"
Appraisal Quality Manager at US Bank, Sam Glusica had this to say about his team which won the best team name last year, "Winning best team name for 'Evel CORNievel' was one of the highlights from San Antonio! The tournament made everyone involved feel like an active participant in the Expo even after the professional sessions were done for the day. Aside from a way to meet many new industry professionals it also turned out to be a great teambuilding experience to play with, and against, the other US Bankers in attendance. The team captain instructed me to start brainstorming new team names even before we booked our flights to Vegas for this year."
Tony Pontikis, National Business Development Manager of RealVS who was a part of the championship team from last year's event said this about the tournament, "We've been training and practicing all year: indoors, outdoors, wood boards, aluminum boards, cloth bags, nylon bags, righty, lefty….of course I'm kidding. Seriously though, Jason and I are really looking forward to all the match-ups and close games. However it pans-out for us - it's sure to be an awesome time. I'll do my best (again) to curb Jason's hootin'-and-hollerin'."
We expect the event to be even more competitive this year and all Valuation Expo attendees and exhibitors are welcome to join. If you don't have a teammate but would still like to play, don't worry we can match you up with someone of a similar skill level. With all the extra help and boards from Real VS we expect the tournament to run like a finely tuned watch. Be sure to sign up for the tournament by CLICKING HERE.
