A Respectful Reminder

We're living in a time of uncertainty and divisiveness. It's truly an unparalleled time in history and in our lifetime. Now more than ever, we have to respect and protect one another. Regardless of any ideology or beliefs, SMRBA isn't a place to share or promote them. Whether it's a seemingly clever remark during a meeting, an off-handed comment in the chat, or even the unintentional subtlety of wearing a potentially offensive or demeaning T-shirt on Zoom, this is unwanted behavior.

Our mantra of "no drama and no politics" is more important than ever before. We always want you to consider SMRBA a safe place where you're free from ridicule and judgment. We're here to promote our fellow members, showcase and grow our business, and build strong and satisfying relationships. Let's all be aware, take care, and continue to support and uplift one another.

As always, we thank you for being a member of our SMRBA family.

2nd Annual Gerald Hundt Memorial Gold Tournament. December 12, 2020

Sponsored by the Superstition Community Food Bank and Republic Services

Tee off with your colleagues and corporate partners at the Gold Canyon Golf Resort. Dinosaur Mountain golf course is consistently rated as one of the top courses in Arizona.

The scenery, dramatic elevation changes, abundant wildlife, and exhilarating views all make for a memorable golfing experience. 

“Unforgettable” certainly describes the Dinosaur Mountain, a course where the championship layout is laced with a rollercoaster ride that would rival Six Flags! 

Most golf courses have one signature hole. Dinosaur Mountain has at least ten holes that could fit the bill. 

Following the tournament, join us for food, drinks, and a chance to win fabulous prizes, all benefiting the Superstition Community Food Bank.
