Who says techies’ don’t know how to have fun? You would be shocked if you knew how much fun it is to be associated with the Carroll Technology Council. We currently have four fantastic events that help support the council.
Every spring we hold our Annual Golf Tournament. There is no doubt that this is the most laid back tournament in the county. We have expert golfers, medium level golfers, horrible golfers and just plain non-golfers. But, it is FUN! It’s a great way to give back to the council and support our programs.
Technically Speaking Gala
In the fall of every year we hold our Technically Speaking Gala — a formal event where we address the “State of the Tech Council.” We invite dignitaries, speakers, and families to come see who receives the “Techie” and “Tech Company of the Year” awards. We also honor a local business that supports technology in the Carroll community.
During the hot days of summer, the Tech Council rolls up its sleeves and cooks up a storm in front of the grill at our annual cookout. Guests enjoy ribs, chicken, sausages and dogs. And of course, don’t forget the beer and entertainment. Every summer, we have had the event at a local driving range. It’s kind of fun to watch how far you can drive a golf ball when you’ve had two beers.
And finally, at the end of the year, the Tech Council holds its Holiday Party. It’s relaxed and home grown event. Members help by contributing tasty dishes and treats and their favorite holiday recipes. It is just what the doctor ordered after a long year of fixing hard drives and laying cable. Everybody comes, even if it’s for just an hour. It doesn’t cost a dime and it’s great.
