First-Time AGTO Competitor Looks Forward to Education, Fun, at AGTO

Ed Monzin of M&M Auto Glass Service will travel to Las Vegas this November to compete for the first time in the Fourth Annual Auto Glass Technician Olympics (AGTO).

"I hope it's a good time and I hope everyone learns something," says Monzin, who chose to compete this year after reading about the competition in previous years in AGRR magazine, which co-sponsors the event with the Independent Glass Association (IGA).

"I've been reading about it and decided I wanted to go try it out," he adds.

As for what he's doing to prepare, Monzin says, "I install auto glass every day."

In addition, he's reviewing the AGTO rules and regulations.

Though Monzin expects the competition to be fun and educational, he also hopes it's educational for the public.

"I hope to promote public awareness," he says. "It's a good chance to let people know windshields can't be installed improperly."

Monzin has 14 years experience and resides in Midlothian, Ill., with his wife, Sherie.

In his spare time, he enjoys billiards and autocross racing.
