Streamline - Fall 2013 - (Page 28)

VRWA’S 2013 EXPO Highlights from the 2013 EXPO August 21-22, 2013 OUR 2013 EXPO was held Aug. 21-22 at the Augusta EXPOland in Fishersville, Va., with an attendance of attendees, vendors, speakers and staff. Wednesday morning started with a light breakfast and some time to visit with vendors. After breakfast, the training sessions began for those water and wastewater operators needing those CPEs. Some attendees and exhibitors opted to participate in either our annual golf tournament or clay shoot. Between training sessions, attendees were able to meet with exhibitors who displayed the best and newest supplies, materials and services with both outdoor exhibits and indoor tabletop displays. Our afternoon training sessions wrapped up about mid-afternoon to make way for the games, where operators could show off their skills with horseshoe and corn hole tournaments, backhoe and water meter toss contests. It was a great way to unwind with some friendly competitions. Thursday got underway with a hot breakfast and more vendor time before training sessions began. A barbecue sponsored by HD Supply followed with pork barbeque and chicken with all the fixings. After everyone enjoyed their delicious lunch, we had prize drawings from our vendors and our annual water tapping contest, sponsored by HD Supply. The VRWA staff appreciates everyone who attended. We would like to offer a special thanks to our speakers who came to assist us in providing quality training to our operators. Also, a special thanks to our vendors who are listed below. Without you, we could not provide the training events that benefit our rural systems by educating all our operators.
