Our yearly golf outing never disappoints, even when the weather is super hot and humid. We do a scramble every year - 2018 winners were Jeremy Lewis, Lisa Connelly, and Nathan Miller. Longest drive went to Dawn Becker (her first year of playing!), closest to pin was Brent McCreedy, and longest putt was Nathan Miller.
Congratulations to all the winners, and a big thanks for everyone who came out and made it a great day at SMBH!

Central Ohio BIM User Group or COBUG has launched, and it's first event is on September 18th! The first meet-up is on enhancing your BIM workflow. It's open to BIM managers and specialists, Architects, Engineers, Contractors, and anyone else who is interested! You'll learn to...
- Create design concepts quickly and carry those concepts into design development without recreation with Formit
- Win work and communicate with clients by taking them on an immersive journey through the building with Revit Live
- Create fast but compelling walkthroughs of projects in context with Infraworks
- Leverage laser scanning and Recap Pro to bring in point cloud data for as-builts and renovations
- Optimize the model with Insight to ensure peak environmental performance
- When it is time to coordinate with other disciplines, see how Navisworks solves clash issues to resolve them virtually rather than in the field where it is most costly
- Discuss internal and external collaboration and gained efficiencies with the BIM 360 portfolio
