API joined the audio community in Tennessee last week for the annual Nashville Engineer Relief Fund Golf Outing. NERF was established through the efforts of the AES Nashville Section and NAPRS in order to raise funds "for individuals in (the engineering) community who, through illness and tragic circumstances, are unable to practice their profession or face other serious problems." The 1st AudioMasters Benefit Golf Tournament was held in 1998 and has been held every May since at the Harpeth Hills Golf Course.
Each year, API carefully crafts a menu to present. Anticipation in the audio community builds for months prior to the event. This year, API's 16th hole featured Ted's Lamb Sliders with homemade yogurt sauce on a brioche bun. The lamb was locally sourced from a farm in Maryland which is owned and operated by API President Larry Droppa's brother, making it a very special selection. "It turned out great," said API salesman, Mark Seman. "Despite the rain, it was an awesome event!"
