Hi Everyone,

Wow, what a fun time at the Expedite Expo!  I do believe it was the best yet, and is sure to grow next year.

For anyone who couldn't make it, the Expedite Expo is around the 23rd or 24th of July each year, and is held at the Roberts Conference Center in Wilmington, Ohio.

Along with the trade show exhibits of Motor Carriers, Truck Manufacturers and other Vendors, the Expo provides a format to communicate with one another through workshops and fun evening events.

Stu Sutton with Sylectus sponsored a Thursday night cocktail party for the Exhibitors, always appreciated after a long day of booth set up. 

CIS/Progressive sponsored the Friday Casino Night that included all kinds of "fun money" gambling activities as well as breaks every hour for games to win more "fun money" on the side.  By the looks of the place, we will need to expand the size next year.  Many thanks again, for all of the generous donations for prizes that were drawn later that night.

Every year CIS/Progressive sponsors the Driver's Choice Award, where attendees "vote" for the best truck in show.

The winner this year was sponsored by Motor Carrier, J.D. Clark Logistics, Inc., with an impressive exhibit showcasing Dennis & Trisch Boling's beautiful 2005 Peterbilt Limited Edition 379X.  Attendees must have loved this unit because it was a slam dunk on number of votes.  So congratulations Dennis & Trisch...everyone loved you!

When attendees vote for Best Truck in Show, they are automatically entered into the 2 $1,000 Cash Drawings that are held every year at 4:00.  (Winners must be present to win.)

The winners of the $1,000 each this year were:

Eric Hurlock & Rick Gardner

Congratulations, Eric & Rick, and hope to see you next year!
