Happy November!  

We hope that you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and that 2017 has provided you and your business with a ton of reasons to give thanks!  

We are grateful that the National Happy Hour Day event held on November 12th across 16 markets was a record-breaking success, and that registration for the 2018 SSIA Conference is filling up quickly.  Don't forget to take advantage of the Early Bird rate and save $100 if you register additional attendees by midnight EST tonight.  The Regular Rate of $400/attendee goes into effect tomorrow, December 1st.   

This month, we'll welcome a new member, highlight an existing member, provide you with the stats from National Happy Hour Day and keep you in-the-know about everything conference-related.

If you have any questions or comments, or would like to be considered for next month's Member Highlight, please contact Krissy at

National Happy Hour Day A Success!
The Social Sports Network set the world record for most simultaneous high fives across multiple venues!  Our official count is 338 participants in 16 markets.  We'd like to send a big THANK YOU to Sa Dao of NLA Sports for spearheading this effort AND to all of the clubs that participated in this flagship event.

Sa is compiling the photos and videos from each of the markets for the World Record agencies to review.  He will have a video collage that participating clubs can use to share on their Facebook pages, along with "I Broke A World Record" award certificates for individual participants.  He will also be showcasing a longer video that will be presented at the conference in February.

Put 11-12-18 on your calendar, Folks!  
Member Highlight
Atlanta Sport and Social Club hosted the Inaugural Atlanta Grilled Cheese Festival last month.  The sold-out event featured local restaurants serving up their take on the classic grilled cheese (along with some creative variations), plus live local music, a beer garden, and a variety of tailgate games and competitions.

The 2018 event is moving to April 14th-15th in order to fall on the weekend after National Grilled Cheese Day (4/12), and will serve over 5,000 attendees. Xoso Sport and Social League's "Sacramento Grilled Cheese Festival," which was the inspiration for the Atlanta event, will fall on the same weekend.
