2011 EIGSC Golf Outing a Success!

June 21, 2011

Hello Group,

I think most of us would agree that this year’s golf outing was another huge success. Special thanks to Scott Dutton for organizing everything and thanks to everyone else that lent a hand. We appreciate all the sponsors, without your support this tournament would not be possible. EIGSC Secretary Ray Miller will be writing a brief version of “The Shaft” this month covering the tournament, if anyone has anything they would like mentioned please forward to him (Ray.Miller@Draka.com).

This month the Elevator History Museum (elevatorhistory.org) will be opening in Long Island City, New York. Founder and Curator of the museum, Patrick Carrajat, is asking for our assistance in helping preserve the history of our trade by donating any old artifacts that could be displayed at the museum. He says he already has a good collection of antique elevator components from the east coast but his west coast catalogs lacks some. If anyone has anything they would like to display at this museum please contact Patrick directly at 917.748.2328.

May Meeting – The Shaft

June 10, 2011

The Shaft


The May meeting was called to order at noon on May 17, 2011

with 28 members and guests in attendance.


President Allan Lloyd provided an overview on the financials then

asked if there was any old or new business that needed to be discussed.

There being none, Mr. Lloyd asked for a committee report


Golf Committee chairman Scott Dutton reminded the group that the

outing is on June 17th at the California Country Club (wwwgolfccc.com). The group asks that you get your registration fees and sponsorships in ASAP. The registration will continue on the day of the tournament at 12 noon with the tournament beginning at 1pm sharp. As always, there will be a reception and raffle following the tournament at approximately 5:30pm.


Allan thanked Scott and then introduced the guest speaker who was Mr.

Gary Sullivan Vice President of ECS Corporation


Gary gave a power point presentation on his company which manufactures

escalator replacement parts and is entering their 50th year in business. ECS

is a family owned and managed business which makes parts such as steps

and step chain for Otis, KONE, O&K, Montgomery, Schindler and Westing-

House escalators. They also have another company that specializes in on site

cleaning of escalator steps. Afterward Gary asked for questions and one person

asked an approximate price that a “refurbished step” would cost and seemed

impressed with the price given in the answer.


Following the power point the new method used in the drawing for the prizes

was roundly supported especially by the winners the Grand Prize of

$50 was won by or Vice President Andrew Ryan.

The May meeting concluded at 1:15PM


September 20th  is the next scheduled meeting, seems far off, our attorney friends from Murchison & Cumming, LLP will be the speakers for the lunch, with a presentation on spoilage of evidence.

See you all at the Golf Outing next week.
