IBA: Fun Abounds at the Bench Bar Conference

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Though the Bench Bar Conference’s unparalleled educational programming naturally receives top billing, its plentiful non-CLE related offerings are also worthy of being shared and appreciated. From golf to trivia, these activities are vital in creating the casual, relaxed atmosphere that has made the Bench Bar Conference a one of a kind event for 20 years. Check out some of the highlights, and visit www.indybenchbar.org to register!

Golf Tournament

After a cold, rainy spring, it’s likely that hitting the links will stay at the top of many dedicated golfers’ to-do lists throughout the summer. Organized by veteran Bench Bar golfer Bob York and sponsored by Wilson Kehoe & Winingham, the Bench Bar Golf Tournament promises to be the perfect opportunity to tee up a great Bench Bar experience. Golfers will enjoy a day at Champions Pointe, a Fuzzy Zoeller course located in Henryville, Indiana, just 25 minutes from the Bench Bar host hotel in Louisville. Feeling competitive? Cash prizes (and bragging rights) are in store for victorious foursomes. Not a pro? Never fear—golfers of all ability levels are welcome!

Thursday Evening Cocktails & Dinner

The conference’s Thursday dinner option has steadily grown in popularity as attendees, seasoned pros and first-timers alike gather to begin socializing and networking prior to the official kick-off to the programming on Friday morning. Attendees at this year’s dinner, sponsored by Bose McKinney & Evans LLP, are in for a treat as we take over one of Louisville’s newest restaurants, Quattro. Quattro opened up in early 2013 to stellar reviews and features “uniquely fresh flavors and rustic Italian cooking in a beautiful setting and exciting atmosphere.” Get a sneak peek at our dinner experience at www.quattrolouisville.com.

Lighten Up and Laugh Luncheon

In a profession that involves great responsibility and a need for near constant focus and attention, it’s easy to take life a bit too seriously. Nationally renowned speaker Craig Zablocki will help attendees take a lighter approach to life, injecting humor into everyday experiences. Learn more about Craig at www.craigzablocki.com.

Trivia Night to benefit the Indianapolis Bar Foundation

After making its Bench Bar debut in 2012, Trivia Night is back! If last year’s packed room and stiff competition are any indication, 2013’s rendition will truly be a can’t-miss feature of the Bench Bar Conference. Trivia emcees James Bell and Adam Christiansen will have participants laughing as they battle it out to claim the title of IBF Trivia Champions and the traveling Thinker trophy. Plus, all of this fun benefits a tremendously worthy cause—the Indianapolis Bar Foundation. You can’t lose!

  1. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  2. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!

  3. @ Rebecca D Fell, I am very sorry for your loss. I think it gives the family solace and a bit of closure to go to a road side memorial. Those that oppose them probably did not experience the loss of a child or a loved one.

  4. If it were your child that died maybe you'd be more understanding. Most of us don't have graves to visit. My son was killed on a state road and I will be putting up a memorial where he died. It gives us a sense of peace to be at the location he took his last breath. Some people should be more understanding of that.

  5. Can we please take notice of the connection between the declining state of families across the United States and the RISE OF CPS INVOLVEMENT??? They call themselves "advocates" for "children's rights", however, statistics show those children whom are taken from, even NEGLIGENT homes are LESS likely to become successful, independent adults!!! Not to mention the undeniable lack of respect and lack of responsibility of the children being raised today vs the way we were raised 20 years ago, when families still existed. I was born in 1981 and I didn't even ever hear the term "CPS", in fact, I didn't even know they existed until about ten years ago... Now our children have disagreements between friends and they actually THREATEN EACH OTHER WITH, "I'll call CPS" or "I'll have [my parent] (usually singular) call CPS"!!!! And the truth is, no parent is perfect and we all have flaws and make mistakes, but it is RIGHTFULLY OURS - BY THE CONSTITUTION OF THIS GREAT NATION - to be imperfect. Let's take a good look at what kind of parenting those that are stealing our children are doing, what kind of adults are they producing? WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS TO THE CHILDREN THAT HAVE BEEN RIPPED FROM THEIR FAMILY AND THAT CHILD'S SUCCESS - or otherwise - AS AN ADULT.....
