23rd Annual Outdoor Extravaganza/Member Trade Show

On October 20th, ABC held its 23rd Annual Outdoor Extravaganza/Member Trade Show.  This event continues to get bigger and better year after year, so much so, that we once again took in Ford Park’s Arena area in addition to their Exhibit Hall.  It really has turned into the most popular “must attend” event of the year by everyone in the Petro-Chemical Industry.  Approx. 3,000 people came out to Ford Park and bought extra chances to win over 200 door prizes, 9 shotguns/rifles and 9 pistols. A big thank you goes out to the entire Suppliers & Associates Council, as well as the Committee’s Chairman, Brent Rozell of Drago Supply, Co., Inc., for all his exemplary volunteerism and leadership throughout the year; another outstanding job planning and coordinating this magnificent show.  Also, special thanks to Coastal Welding Supply, Inc. for its donation of plastic bags for all the attendees to carry as they visited the various member booths, and Gopher Industrial for donating the drinking cups for all of the beverage stations. 

Special recognition of our various Platinum, Gold, Silver & Bronze Sponsors who paid for all the great food and drinks, as well as the Gun Sponsors who paid for all the firearms:

What a great turn out we had for this year’s 22nd Annual Hurricane Party. The event was catered by Larry’s French Market and they did a great job as always! Our guest speaker was Jefferson County’s Emergency Management Coordinator, Greg Fountain. He had up to date information and procedures for emergency situations, as well as, played out the various “what-if/worst-case scenarios”, while stressing the importance of hurricane preparedness and the need to develop a plan for your family, pets, property, and employees.  

Once again, we had the famous “Hawaiian Shirt” Contest. The winner this year was Jimmy Harrison of Higginbotham Insurance. He was awarded with a $50.00 gift certificate to Larry’s French Market.

A special thank you to the following members for their generous door prize donations: LJA Engineering, Inc. (large rolling cooler, Bluetooth Radio, Bluetooth radio/charging stations) and Moncla’s (two gift certificates for white chocolate bread pudding). There was also the annual recognition of new members. All those in attendance not only enjoyed great food and company, but they had fun networking with the other ABC members. Thank you again for your continued support and dedication to ABCSETX.
