Utah Trucking Association Micro-Conference

By: Rick Clasby, Executive Director

 

The trucking association leadership is excited to announce an upcoming micro-convention.  This event is scheduled for September 17 and 18, 2020 in the St. George, Utah area.  While still under design, this convention will certainly consist of the traditional sporting clay tournament and President’s Cup golf tournament. 

 

The sporting clay event will be held at the Purgatory Trap and Sporting Clay venue in Hurricane, Utah and will begin at 2:00 pm on Thursday, September 17th.  Arrangements have been made to allow utilization of both sporting clay course so here is plenty of room to accommodate a large group while still adhering to sound social distancing practices.  Participants and sponsors can register in teams of four or as individuals at utahtrucking.com under the “events” tab.  An Annie Oakley shoot-out will be offered following the sporting clay tournament.  North American Trailer has graciously offered to provide the top team(s), individual shooter, Annie Oakley winner and grand raffle prices.  There are numerous other sponsorship opportunities available including general sponsorship, refreshment/meals, ammunition, etc.  This event is one of the most popular presented by the association each year and provides for a ton of fun along with a terrific opportunity to network and socialize.  Please register soon to ensure you get to participate.

 

The President’s Cup golf tournament will be held at the Sand Hollow golf course in Hurricane, Utah on Friday, September 18th.  Registration and a continental breakfast will begin at 7:00 am.  Course officials are allowing a shotgun start at 8:00 am.  Again, every effort will be made to ensure that sound social distancing precautions are made.  The Sand Hallow pro course is beautiful and lots of fun to play.  There will be a limit of 132 plays on this course so register soon to ensure a spot on the pro course.  The links course will be available for teams and individuals registering after the 132 slots are full.  Golf hole, breakfast, lunch and refreshment cart sponsorships are available and encouraged.  For hole sponsors, it would be a great opportunity to visit with the greatest number of micro-convention participants by having socially distant, interactive activities at your assigned hole (games, prizes, promotional materials, etc.). 

 

Association staff is working on inviting speakers to present following the sporting clay, golf or both.  They are also working with hotel providers to secure a block of rooms.  More specific information pertaining to this two-day event will be coming in the next weeks.

With the interesting happenings of 2020, the association looks forward to offering this gathering in an effort to provide some sense of normal, an escape and an opportunity to gather as a trucking family.  Please feel free to call the association team regarding questions or to offer recommendations at 801-973-9370.  Again, registration is best handled at utahtrucking.com under the “events” tab.
