Glass Expo Midwest 2006 Underway and Going Strong;
Torrence Aluminum, MTH Employees Winners at Golf Outing
Glass Expo Midwest 2006 is underway today at the Renaissance Shaumburg
Hotel and Convention Center in Shaumburg, Ill., with a full range of educational
seminars for both the flat and auto glass industries.
The social aspect of the show began yesterday with a golf tournament at
Highland Woods Golf Course. The event, a four-person scramble, was won
by a three-person team consisting of Rich Kuras, Rich Graham and Tim O'Connor,
all of Torrence Aluminum with a score of -11 par.
There were two closest-to-the-pin competitions, Kuras winning one of those
competitions and Dennis Koziol of MTH Industries winning the second. The
event's long drive competition was also won by a member of MTH staff,
That evening, many attendees traveled for an optional event to U.S. Cellular
Field to watch the local Chicago White Sox play the New York Yankees in
a very close baseball game. The final score was 7-6, Yankees favor.
"We've been coming to this event for years and have always learned
something new. Even the glass 101 session taught attendees quite a bit,"
said Michael Collins.
Glass Expo Midwest trade show opens today at 3 p.m. (runs until 8 p.m.
with a cocktail party on the floor starting at 6 p.m.) and will be open
again tomorrow from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
