Once again, this event exceeded our expectations. Participation really exploded this year with 17 teams, 16 sponsors, and too many guests to count. Even Governor Asa Hutchinson stopped by! In spite of the chill and the rain, everyone had a great time relaxing with their friends, families, and colleagues.
The competition was tough; all the food was delicious and all the teams were skilled. Ultimately, Forsgren, Inc., walked away with the championship belt. We’ll see if they can hold onto their title next year!
This year, AAPA decided to donate to Ovarian Cancer Research in honor of Taryn Claassen, daughter of Brad and Sherri Fryar of Contractor’s Specialty. Our members rose to the challenge, and we were able to raise over $4,000 for this worthy cause.
A special thanks to our sponsors and to the ARDOT staff who served as our judges.
