Our Spring 2019 tour in Arizona was a success thanks to the tour sponsors including Island Stone, Scottsdale Fire & Water, BBQ Island, Pentair & Basecrete.

The tour kicked off Sunday with drinks and dinner hosted by Tributary sponsor Island Stone at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. Members gathered for happy our drinks and dinner at the Orange Sky restaurant with amazing views from the 15th floor.

Day one began with a luxury pool project tour in the Lost Canyon neighborhood of Scottsdale. We owe a huge thanks to John Smieszek and Gordon Berry of Liquid Evolution Pools for the in-depth tour and to JMAX Plumbing for the delicious refreshments.

Our next stop included a tour and Q&A at another Liquid Evolution project currently at the plumbing stage in Paradise Valley.

A quick break for lunch and go-kart racing prepared us for more project tours, including two Premier Paradise projects, currently under construction, and one of their recently completed luxury pool projects in Paradise Valley.

Dinner was hosted by BBQ Island in Tempe and included live product demonstrations by Lynx Grills and Memphis Grills, and dinner prepared by professional chefs from Lynx Grills flown in for the the event.
