GKCDS Day at the Royals Game

" Let's Go Royals" was the chant of several dozen Greater Kansas City Dental Society members, friends, staff, sponsors, and families last Saturday at the K. They were gathered as part of the annual Day at the Royals game outing put on by the GKCDS. This was my first year to attend and it was awesome in spite of the heat and the 2-1 loss. Hey the team had just won 11 in a row and moved into first place. A let down is not surprising. I didn't notice anything but smiles (and sweat) on the faces of the people I talked to.
Thanks to good sponsors (BWTP, MDIS, UMB, Mallow-Tru Dental Studio, and Delta Dental) we were able to enjoy the event and the game at a very reasonable price. The event started with a catered tailgate and a nice breeze under the tent. People enjoyed their BBQ and cold beverages while visiting with sponsors and friends. The kiddos were active with bag toss. It was great to see both the "wise and experienced" crowd and some younger and newer faces as well. I enjoyed introducing myself to a handful of new faces as well as hobnobbing with the familiar ones.
The game still had highlights including Alex Gordon's home run and lots of silly between inning competitions. And there's always the amazing fountains. Ok, on to the photos above. That's Dr.Amy Gillihan (in white) with her office staff. Dr Chad Barth, Dr Wesley Christian, Dr Nikki Banwart Christian, and Dr Barth's wife take in the meal while they visit. The tent shot reflects the windy but hot day that made photo taking less than desired. And the whole crowd enjoyed the shade of Section 425 with an excellent view of the game.
