Our Purpose

"...to provide a means of exchange of technical information, for the expression of experience and opinion, and for discussion of news of the industry between people interested in rubber, plastics, and associated industries. The aim of this organization shall be to accomplish this purpose by promoting educational, social, and recreational meetings for members in a friendly and interesting manner."


Social Events

In addition to our technical meetings, we hold a couple of really fun social events as well.

Golf Outing

In June of each year, we hold a Memorial Golf Outing that will be named for a recently deceased member. It is always the second Thursday in June, and we host around 100+ golfers at Maxwelton Golf Club in Syracuse, Indiana. You will find our golf outing to be the most reasonably priced Rubber Group Outing in the country, and of course, one of the best as far as having a great time with Rubber Industry people from all over the Midwest. There is always a nice door prize for everyone who attends, a great dinner, a drawing for some nice prizes, and several golf challenge prizes: a couple of closest to pins, longest drive, etc. Lunch and check in start at 11 am and tee time for the best-ball scramble format is 12 pm. Golf carts are included. You can choose to play golf and have dinner, or do the dinner only. Dates for the golf outing are (it's always the second Thursday):
