    A Night of Mini-golf & Food ‘fore’ Team Bonding



    The Allendale Group team enjoyed a night of fun (and slightly competitive) mini-golf, with a great meal at Firejacks once everyone had finished on the course, followed by more tasty courses at the restaurant. There were quite a few hole-in-ones but it was our IT Director, Scott, that took the crown this time around with a score of 43.

    It was a great evening enjoyed by all and it was a good opportunity for everyone to meet and get to know our new Technical Product Specialist, Phil Cadman, a little more as well. Phil was at Bowers Group for 16 years and brings a wealth of Metrology knowledge with him to the Allendale Group & Machine DRO, we’re looking forward to what the future has in store with Phil onboard.
