Letter from the Executive Director, October 2013, TheGRCBlueBook
New England is ablaze with Fall Foliage in full color and the Red Sox are preparing for their first game of the World Series! I have to admit that I am both a St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox fan. I attended college in Missouri and the Cardinals AAA team play in a beautiful stadium in downtown Springfield, Mo, home of Brad Pitt. You know…. Angelina Jolie’s husband!
However, after living in New England for more than 20 years I have finally become a true Bean Town fan. I can’t lose either way so I will enjoy the first two games in Missouri with my Cardinal buddies and the rest of the series with my Red Sox pals. Play ball!
The fall season also ushers in a full complement of events and conferences focused on risk management and training that you may find inviting.
