The Everett Porter Unintentional was founded in 1987 by Bill Kaman, President of Kaman Music.
Kaman was approached by Ovation Guitars Purchasing Manager Everett Porter, who mentioned in passing that a golf tournament should be organized to bring together music industry vendors, dealers and Kaman Music employees.
To Porter's surprise, Bill Kaman
agreed and immediately put plans in place for the tournament.
Due to the serendipitous creation of the tournament, it was henceforth known at the Everett Porter Unintentional.
