NEFA's 24th Annual "Brad Friel Memorial Clean Classic" 2019

North East Fabricare Association
24th Annual



“Brad Friel Memorial Clean Classic”

Wednesday, July 17, 2019


NEFA’s annual summer event is moving to Cyprian Keyes Golf Club in Boylston, MA on Wednesday July 17, 2019 with a 9:45 shotgun start.

Since opening in 1997, Cyprian Keyes has received numerous national recognition and awards.  The dramatic course combines the beauty of nature with stimulating play.  The course features a challenging, but fair layout and is frequently rated one of the best maintained courses in central MA.

 NEFA will again be using the popular 2-score, Bramble format this year.  In this format, all players tee off, the group selects the spot of the best drive, and then all players hit their second shot from that spot and play their own ball in through the hole.  The team then records the two best scores for the hole using the handicap provided.  This enables players to play more of their own shots, and the handicapping systems makes if fair for all players in all skill levels. 




NEFA To Co-Sponsor Environmental Webinar
NEFA To Co-Sponsor Environmental Webinar

On May 22, NEFA is joining with MAC, SEFA and CCA to partner with EnviroForensics to host a Remediation & Clean-up Webinar.  The program is free to all members and will be held at 2:00 EST.  

Jeff Carnahan and Dru Shields of EnviroForensics will discuss what you can expect in a dry cleaner’s environmental cleanup, emerging issues, available funding opportunities, and how to get yourself into the driver’s seat. This is a proverbial roadmap for dry cleaners to address their environmental issues while minimizing out-of-pocket expenses.

“This is a great session”, observed Peter Blake, NEFA Executive Vice President, ‘and it is a great opportunity to learn about what you can expect from a clean-up, or a remediation action.  Even if you are not currently involved in a clean-up, but have concerns, then this webinar is for you!  You can ask questions, learn how to protect yourself, and learn how you can prepare for business transition.  I get a lot of calls on how to prepare an exit strategy and environmental concerns remain one of the biggest concerns.”

Attendees will learn:
- How environmental cleanups are triggered, what you can expect during the environmental cleanup process, and emerging issues that need to be addressed
- How you can use historical insurance policies to help pay for environmental cleanups
- How you protect yourself and others from environmental liability when you’re ready to retire or sell your business

You’ll leave with a clear understanding of the multi-disciplined approach necessary to address environmental contamination and with clear next steps. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions during our Q&A session.
