Networking short game at SACC's 20th Annual Bamboo Classic

Networking short game at SACC's 20th Annual Bamboo Classic

Imagine replacing the muted beige walls and lacquered wood trimming with the golden hills of the Northern California Valley; the blare of ringing cellphones silenced by the soft footsteps of wild turkeys crossing lush green grass; good food and good weather being the apex of a sales pitch rather than the staccato hum of a PowerPoint slide.

Imagine a boardroom presentation with Mother Nature as your Closer.

Nearly 20 Northern California businesses made the above a reality.   

The Sacramento Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce (SACC) hosted its 20th Annual Bamboo Classic Golf Tournament July 21 at Catta Vedera Country Club in Lincoln, Calif.

Over 140 golfers, representing a wide-array of the Sacramento region’s business community, participated in SACC’s signature fundraising event. Northern California small businesses capitalized on a unique opportunity to network with tournament participants through tee box sponsorship.

Backhoe ruptures gas line in Sacramento construction zone

SACRAMENTO - A gas leak impacted traffic in the area of Center Parkway and Cosumnes River Boulevard Wednesday.

Sacramento firefighters and Pacific Gas and Electric workers were called to the scene around 10:10 a.m. after a worker operating a backhoe struck and ruptured a four-inch gas line inside the Light Rail construction zone.

Sacramento Fire Department Captain Martin Cordeiro praised the quick thinking of the worker for preventing any further disruptions or danger in the area.

"The operator of the backhoe did the right thing. Once they accidentally hit that line, they shut the backhoe off, they got off, they called 911 and here we are."

The area was quickly zoned off and police provided traffic control in the area.

Sheriff asks for help regarding man missing 1 week

An employee who left his workplace upset a week ago is missing, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department says.

Sukhvir Gill, 29, works at a business on the 7700 block of Stockton Boulevard. He left work in an emotional state July 22 and is considered at-risk because that is not his normal behavior, the sheriff's report says.

Calls to the missing man's cellphone do not go through and calls from family and friends are not being answered, according to the report.

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Gill or the car was urged to contact the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department at (916) 874-5115.

Due to Drought Conditions, Traditional Gold Rush Days Activities Cancelled for 2014

Due to Drought Conditions, Traditional Gold Rush Days Activities Cancelled for 2014

Due to California’s drought conditions and the enormous amounts of water needed to put on the annual heritage event, the traditional Gold Rush Days activities in Old Sacramento have been cancelled for 2014.  The decision was made by Steve Hammond, President & CEO of the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau, along with the City of Sacramento and other stakeholders of the event.

Each year, nearly 200 tons of dirt (or decomposed granite) is used to help transform Old Sacramento into a scene out of the 1850s.  In addition to the visual transformation, the dirt also allows for a safe foundation for the horses, wagons and for various skits and performances to take place in the streets. However, it takes up to 3,000 gallons of water per day to keep the dirt dampened and dust down during the event – plus up to 100,000 gallons of water to clean up the dirt at the conclusion of the event.
