Hear me out, my dream goal in Big Four is to organize a Big Four golfing tournament. The best players from each firm go head to head. Obviously too ambitious to do a national level tourney, but I’ll settle for a market-based tourney, to see who is the best Big Four team out of the Houston market for example. Golfers out there, what do you think?

Golf is a fine sport I guess but why play with other accountants? Go play with your...friends?

Haha. Collegues are the only friends we have.

The real question is if u can slide this thru the expense policy

funny

I’m thinking the firms split the cost and expense it to their social/team building budgets. Just need to pay for some tee times and maybe catering and bar for non-golfers that come to watch and network.

This is your dream?
