GlasWeld Returns as Platinum Sponsor of WRO for Third Year

For the third consecutive year, GlasWeld of Bend, Ore., will hold its position as platinum sponsor of the Third Annual Walt Gorman Memorial Windshield Repair Olympics (WRO). This year's WRO will be held in Las Vegas November 6, 2008, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. The event is co-sponsored by the National Windshield Repair Association (NWRA) and AGRR magazine and is held alongside the International Auto Body Congress and Expo (NACE).

The competition serves as a venue for repair technicians to showcase and learn from one another. The WRO is open to all and features technicians from all over the world.

"2007 saw the most qualified and prepared contestants yet and we believe that these events are the beginning of a new level of awareness about the value of well-trained and well-equipped repair technicians," says Mike Boyle, president and chief visionary officer for GlasWeld. "Our industry needs to focus on the positives that repair brings to the consumer, such as great economic and environmental benefits. We are proud to sponsor this important event for the third year in a row."

The first-place winner of the WRO will receive a cash prize of $1,000, a gold medal and trophy as well as bragging rights as "World's Best Repair Technician." Second place will receive $500 as well as a silver medal and third will receive $250 and a bronze medal.
