Out Of The Office And Into The Wild: Creating A Fun Company Event Camping In Missouri

Saturday, March 10th, 2018

Business owners and corporate event planners know that the best company events are fun, morale boosting, family friendly, and budget friendly. What better way to meet all four of these goals than to spend a weekend enjoying nature and participating in fun group activities while Camping in Missouri! It only takes a little bit of planning to pull off an event that workers will remember for years.

The first step is selecting a resort or campground. Event planners should look for a venue that has experience hosting large groups. One way to determine this is to visit the resort’s website. Do they have cabins, lodges, or bunkhouses that can accommodate large groups? Do they offer special pricing for large groups? Are there package deals that include lodging, food, and activities? Are there activities such as hayrides or float trips that large groups can enjoy together? Each of these are good indicators that the resort is an excellent choice for a company event.

The next step is making sure that the event is fun for all families. In addition to participating in group activities, many families may wish to break away from the group for a few hours to enjoy themselves. This should be encouraged. Event planners should suggest hiking, swimming, horseback riding, or fishing as activities families might enjoy. Selecting a resort that is close to other attractions will provide families with even more opportunities to enjoy eachother’s company.

Thirdly, a successful event is a safe event. Camping in Missouri can be a lot of fun, as long as a few safety rules are followed:

* Children should be supervised in and around water no matter how shallow

* A bad sunburn can ruin a weekend – sunscreen is a must

* Alcohol, if permitted, should be consumed responsibly and limited to those over the age of 21

* Nobody should hike or swim alone – this includes adults

* All participants should be instructed to obey all posted safety regulations

Finally, Contact Huzzah Valley Resort. They have staff members who will be happy to assist in planning a corporate event or retreat that is sure to be enjoyed by all employees and their families.

Golf Basics – About Greens


Jeff O’Brien

Knowing how to drive and putt are not the only things you need to learn about playing golf.

Golf being an outdoor activity you play on a living portion of land, and as in everything else out of doors, Mother Nature loves to play this game.

Grasses are different; you might encounter a plush putting green or a weed patch with little growth at all. The putt can be altered by the texture, length and texture of the grass, and how much grass is actually there.

A true golfer doesnt play only on sunny days with no breeze, it is quite common to see a golfer with an umbrella (to protect the clubs) playing in the rain.

Like any other outdoor activity, the rain changes how you putt a golf ball.

You will also come across a condition that is created by man, that is recognized by few golfers, this is called the lumpy donut” however this is not a real threat.

In the United States you will most likely be playing on one of two types of grass:

Bent is a cool weather grass found in the northern states, it is soft with fine blades growing close together, and this creates a carpet like texture. It cant take prolonged heat or humidity.

Bermuda is used in the warmer climates; it is a strong weedy grass that handles warmer climates and humidity found in the southern states.

The blades are long, broad, shaggy and sparser; golfers describe it as a wild shag rug which causes the ball to rise and fall in and out of the blades. Bermuda also has a grain, the direction in which the grass grows.

Their differences create very different playing surfaces for golf.

Balls will roll truer on bent grasses and the break will be caused by the slope of the land. With Bermuda your shot can be affected by uneven growth patterns in the grass.

The place to identify how your shots will react to the different types of grass is the practice green.
