Later this month cannabis industry professionals will put down their lighters and pick up their golf clubs as the second annual Fore Twenty Golf Tournament comes to Portland on June 30th. It is a business tradition to fortify deals and build relationships on the golf course, and with the budding cannabis industry it is no different. This years tournament will see 55 cannabis brands from Oregon hit the green to tee it high and let it fly, as MRX Labs defends their title in the largest cannabis tournament in the northwest.
This sold out private golf event has spiked interest from celebrity and sport figures alike as cannabis becomes less taboo around The United States. Former NBA All-Star and current sports cannabis activist, Cliff Robinson, will be in attendance as he helps pave the way so cannabis can be accepted as an alternative to pain killers and other addictive medications for athletes that are injured and worn down during their careers. “Cannabis helped me deal with the physical and mental stress of being a professional athletes for 18 years. I’m so grateful that now in 2016 I’m able to put my beliefs to work, and help the sports industry understand how cannabis can be an alternative solution for athletes all over the world. It will be great to get out on the green this month and speak with all of these great companies that are helping pave the way for a brighter future.”
This summers Fore Twenty Golf Tournament gives CannaProfessionals the opportunity to take a break from their hectic schedules to network in a different manner than the usual banquet hall conference. Fore Twenty Sports wants to continue to spread awareness, while helping everyone network through a fun and stress-free environment. “We are here to unite all of these great brands that are beginning to establish their presence in the Oregon cannabis market for a day of good times and hopefully spark new relationships. There are so many talented people behind the scenes who work endless hours to make this industry grow, and we are glad to provide this opportunity,” Matt Enos, event coordinator said.
This tournament will feature Truly Pure; the winner of Best CO2 Cartridge in Oregon from The Dope Cup, 2 state of the art analytical labs in MRX and Green Leaf, a few booming dispensaries in Oregon like Oregon’s Finest, Blazin, and Maritime Cafe, a web platform guru’ing dispensary deals in The Daily Leaf (DailyLeafDeals.com), and so many more.
If you did not get a chance to sign up for the June 30th Fore Twenty Golf Tournament, then you will be happy to know that the next 2 tournaments will take place in September. Dates have not been solidified yet, but Fore Twenty Sports is hoping to bring one more industry professionals event, and another that will be open to the public.
