Annual Christmas Luncheon – Speaker: Travis Hall, President of Browning

Our Annual User Group Christmas Luncheon will be held at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, December 12th, 2012 at Corbin’s Grille located in the heart of Layton, next door to the Hilton Garden Inn and Davis Conference Center, 748 W. Heritage Park Blvd.

Our speaker for the Christmas Luncheon this year will be Travis D. Hall, President and CEO of Browning, headquartered in Morgan, Utah. Travis earned a Marketing degree from the University of Utah and upon graduating went to work for Marriott & Asay a full-service marketing, advertising and PR firm. In 1996, while looking to find a career in the outdoor industry, Travis was offered a position at Browning. He has held several positions at Browning including public relations manager, director of marketing, vice president sales & marketing, senior vice president and COO. His passion for the outdoors is what drives him to come to work every day to help the team at Browning uphold its great legacy. He currently resides in Fruit Heights with his wife Nancy, daughter McKenzie and son Bridger.

Come and share the Christmas cheer with your fellow Midrange users, managers, and others in this area. That’s what this group is about. Sharing and progressing. We are looking forward, as always, to this month’s meeting. Come out, mingle, learn and share with each other!! Remember, everyone attending will receive door prizes and a special drawing will be made for other special prizes.

A paid membership entitles two people to come to the luncheon free of charge. Any additional guests will be charged $13.00 per person at the door.

We will need to give the Corbin’s Grille a count of how many people we are expecting to attend. So please RSVP to a member of the board by noon on December 6th.
