This will be our thirteenth year of attending this truck show and how it has changed over the years. This has always been a working truck show for us to learn more about our industry as well as looking at new products and picking up items for our truck. MATS has never been a leisurely event.

Team Run Smart can be found in booth 34360 and on display will be Henry and Jeff's New Cascadia's. Come on over and check out the new trucks and see what is in the works with Team Run Smart for this year. All of the "Pro's" will be in attendance at this show and we all look forwards to meeting new people and catching up with friends.

Trucker Buddy International will be located in booth 40572 and there will be several Trucker Buddies there to answer questions and talk about their experiences as Trucker Buddies. I have known several of these guys for years and they are all characters with hearts of gold. Worth the trip to just to meet them. Some of their ideas they use with their classes will make you wish you had a Trucker Buddy when in school.

Once again Women in Trucking is hosting the Salute to Women Drivers that will be held Saturday. Stop by the Women in Trucking booth 40557 to register Anyone can attend the Salute and all women truck drivers will receive a red t-shirt and after the event there will be a picture of all the women truck drivers in their red shirts. This is a fun way to meet other women truck drivers and to hear their inspiring stories.

Each evening there are all kinds of activities in the Papa John's Parking lot. It is considered the show after the show. We will have our truck over in this area near the TA/Petro portable showers.

Hoping the weather is warm and we are looking forward to seeing you!
