The fifth annual COPi Cup Golf Invitational was held on March 4-6 this year at the iconic Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill golf courses. Competition was fierce but friendly on the links, with 60 dedicated golfers vying for the coveted 2017 COPi Cup title. Off the course, participants banded together to raise a staggering $175,000 ($50,000 over the original goal) to fund higher education scholarships for the SCGA Junior Scholarship Program.
“I believe a great time was had by all, and as it has been in the past, the competition was intense. I am blown away by the generosity of our participants. To realize donations of more than $175,000 is rewarding to all who worked hard to organize and stage this event,” said Phil Frengs, President and CEO of Legistics, the founding COPi Cup sponsor. “But more importantly, it speaks to the willingness of these players to give back to the game, funding collegiate scholarships for the kids we reach through SCGA Junior.”
Wow! We did it again! We received another Silver Award from Graphis, the international design journal. This one was also for our rebranding as Legistics, but this time the award was part of Graphis’ Logo Design 9 annual — a different competition, but an equally competitive one.
We’re delighted that our new graphic identity continues to be recognized by the design industry, because it continues to make a positive impact on our company as well.
Thanks again to FreeAssociates for their stunning design concepts and execution.
Fresh off their storybook 2016 season, the Legistics/RS1 racing team took to the track on January 27th at Daytona International Speedway for the first race of the 2017 IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge. The weather may have been cool but the competition was hot as drivers Nick Galante and Spencer Pumpelly kicked off what promises to be a hard-fought, action-packed, season-long defense of their championship title.
As the sun was going down on the legendary Florida speedway, scores of high-performance engines were revving up for the first qualifying round of the year. Behind the wheel of the #17 Porsche Cayman, Nick Galante got a good run out of the bus stop and a good draft out onto the oval. The stars all seemed to be aligned as Nick qualified the car at 7th.
The team was eager to build on Nick’s momentum, but there was a catch. Unlike a typical 2.5-hour race, the season opener would be a grueling 4 hours. On everyone’s mind: how would that extended time affect them, their cars and their carefully calibrated strategies? Undaunted by the challenge, Nick started the race on the inside of the 4th row and passed three cars before the 4th turn. By the end of his steely stint on the course, the #17 was in 2nd place.
Nick handed the car off to hot shoe Spencer Pumpelly who exited the pits in the 6th spot. Charging back in his usual aggressive way, Spencer was back in the 2nd spot by the 3-hour mark. After a fierce, multi-lap battle with the #56 of Jeff Mosing and Eric Foss, Spencer made a great pass and took the lead.
With only 45 minutes left in the race, an unexpected flurry of caution periods and yellow flags opened the door for other cars to stock up on tires and fuel. Spencer got pushed back to the 5th spot with 15 minutes remaining. After yet another caution period at the 5-minute mark, Pumpelly charged his way back towards the front of the pack. In a show of grit and skill, the veteran driver muscled the #17 across the line in 3rd place for a coveted spot on the podium!
A great start to another exciting season for the RS1/Legistics team!
The COPi Cup golf tournament, an annual celebration of competition, camaraderie and charity, will be held this year at the iconic Pebble Beach Resorts on March 4-6. Presented by Legistics to benefit the Southern California Golf Association (SCGA) Junior Scholarship Fund, the COPi Cup Pro-Am Invitational is a unique opportunity to mix it up with other executives and golfers who share a love of the game, a fierce but friendly rivalry, and a commitment to helping underserved youth succeed in golf and in life.
The action will play out across two of the most spectacular and legendary golf courses in the world: Spyglass Hill and Pebble Beach. Each foursome will include three amateurs and one professional competing over two rounds for the coveted COPi Cup title. Off the course, collaboration is the name of the game, as participants and sponsors pull together to reach this year’s goal of $125,000 for the SCGA Scholarship Fund.
