Eric Tracy is fantastic and I can’t say enough about the guy. Eric and I have worked together on my event the last 10 years so if this is your inaugural event, I wouldn’t think twice about hiring him. Eric brings a lot of value. In addition to his services and products that are tangible, his intangible services are what makes him invaluable to me. My first handful of years he brought a lot of tournament planning wisdom. Each year my solid field of golfers continue to return and each year I seem to gain one or two new sponsors. We are growing and I know that I couldn’t have gotten this far without him. Sometimes the knock against Eric is his fees that might seem like a lot on the face of it. However my contention is that if he can pay for himself (and he always does) then why not hire him? Eric brings a ton of giveaways items, he brings pre-tournament and on-course fundraising games and he always has new ideas for how to make more money for my cause. Further he is great at the dinner/lunch portion of the event and playfully gets people to open up their pocket books. I often wonder why more folks don’t hire him? Since I make more money with him than without him, since people are entertained pre-tournament, during the tournament and post tournament, and since he makes my event so much more memorable it has always been a no-brainer to continue having Eric as a part of my event.

The Mulligan Man was a huge success. Your banter on and off the course, the jokes and your exceptional ’emcee’ prowess were very much appreciated by our players and sponsors alike. ‘Where did you find him, and how can we get him back next year?’ was a frequent question I was asked immediately following the event. Your help with the compressed social hour and auction really helped rescue what could have been a disaster. It speaks to your expertise in handling these events with style and effectiveness. I cannot thank you enough! I want to ask you to come back for our 2001 event….

Playing as The Mulligan Man in our tournament, I was fascinated by how quickly you made friends. I don’t know how you do it. Not only did you play with every group, but I’m amazed at how you seemed to remember everybody’s name. Remembering names lends so much to people having a good time; it makes them feel special. But I really want to thank you for the professional way you served as our Master of Ceremonies. It was obvious you were in complete control the entire evening. You made the banquet move smoothly, you kept the crowd laughing with your humor and jokes and the most important to us, you raised significantly more money on our auction items than we anticipated. Your service to us was money well spent…. Using those baseball gifts to encourage silent auction bidding was a unique twist and absolutely increased bidding action. Please let the Angels know the goodwill they are spreading with their give-aways. Thank you again for all you did and we look forward to working with you again.

I play in about 4-5 charity tournaments that you host and it’s always been a pleasure playing with you. In fact, you chipped one from the fairway for an eagle last year on the 15th hole at El Caballero. I look forward to playing with you again. Wayne Sluman

I just wanted to really thank you for sending me the CD of the photos from our photo shoot, and for sending me the newspaper and golf magazine as well. That’s a lot of extra work, and I am very impressed with your commitment to follow through with the people you work with. Most people work on the “out of sight, out of mind” theory…but you are a true professional. I’d be proud to work on any event with you! Have a great weekend, and let me know if I can help you in any way. Greg Baxter
