Contestant Close Ups: Eric Chriswisser and Lynn Lovetinsky
AGRR magazine and the GlassBYTEs.com daily email newsletter
are marking the days until the Auto Glass Technician Olympics by introducing
this year's competitor field with a daily contestant profile.
Chriswisser will join coworker Lynn Lovetinsky, last year's silver medallist
at the Auto Glass Technician Olympics, as he returns this year to win
first place and the title of "World's Best Auto Glass Technician."
They will travel to Las Vegas from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where they are
employed by Auto Glass Center, an AGRSS-registered business.
Married with a two-year-old daughter, Chriswisser brings nine years of
experience as a certified installer in auto glass installation to the
competition. In his spare time, he enjoys attending Iowa State sporting
events and spending time with his family.
Lovetinsky has 15 years of experience in auto glass installation. Married
with two children, in his spare time, he enjoys gun collecting.
Both will be installing with Dow adhesives during the competition.
The Auto Glass Technician Olympics, now in its second year, is co-sponsored
by the Independent Glass Association (IGA) and AGRR magazine. The
event follows on the heels of the second annual Auto Glass Replacement
Safety Standard (AGRSS) Conference and both events, along with the National
Windshield Repair Association Conference and the Windshield Repair Olympics
are co-located this year with the Auto Glass Expo @ NACE.
The events will be held November 1-4, 2006 at the Mandalay Bay Convention
Center in Las Vegas.
