Streamline - Summer 2016 - (Page 12)

VRWA's 2016 Conference Conference Center, along with Virginia Rural Water Association, hosted its 28th Annual Conference on April 18-20. Over 616 supervisors, operators and sales representatives were in attendance. Conference started with a beautiful Monday for a golf and clay shoot outing. The day ended with a Vendors Reception as the exhibit hall was opened for all to see the latest in technology. Tuesday started with a delicious breakfast, training classes, along with an opening session followed by the Business Meeting. Our day ended with casino "Southern Corrosion HOTEL ROANOKE AND Style." We would like to thank our Platinum Booster sponsor Southern Corrosion for once again giving us the opportunity to offer fun entertainment to the conference attendees. Wednesday ended the conference with more classes, final visits with the vendors and a wonderful sit down lunch with David Dawson (Advantage Partnership, LLC) sharing with us ways to apply teamwork in the workplace. We ended with awards and prizes and then said our goodbyes to old and new friends, only to see them again next year. 2016 CLAY SHOOT WINNERS WINNING TEAM Frank Davis, Brad Brown, Danny Hylton and Brian Rodgers SECOND PLACE TEAM John Seaman, Tom Delbridge, Mike Ritchie and Pam Baughman THIRD PLACE TEAM Jack Girardi, Bryce Carter, Mark O'Sullivan and Greg Everhardt HIGHEST SHOOTERS First Place with a 98 - Frank Davis Second Place with a 91 - Mike Ritchie Third Place with a 90 - Greg Everhardt Pump Winner - Scott Foley Sub Gauge - Tom Delbridge Female Winner - Pam Baughman Sportsman Award - Paul Mahoney Gold Medallion - Pete Sleeman Silver Medallion - Donnie Pruitt Bronze Medallion - Robbie Boyer 12 S T R E A M L I N E * S u m m e r 2 0 1 6
