PRO-TRUCKER MAGAZINEe

Trucker’s Family Weekend would be going strong 14 years after he first approached Pro-Trucker Magazine asking for help. The first Annual BC Big Rig Weekend, “A Trucker’s Dream” was held in 2001 and it was a great success. It grew considerably in 2002 and that year we had an overwhelming response when we asked companies in the industry to sponsor trophies. Many of the companies who sponsored trophies in 2002 still sponsor them today. In 2003 we hosted the first Alberta Big Rig Weekend. As the years went by it became more and more expensive to host Big Rig Weekends so in 2004 we went and spoke with companies in the industry about Major Sponsorships. Howes Lubricator and Shell Rotella T immediately stepped forward. • Howes Lubricator is now our longest continuous supporter having been a Major Sponsor for the last 10 consecutive years. • In 2006 Glen Transport, which soon became Glen West Specialized, also became a Major Sponsor. They have been a Major Sponsor now for a total of 9 years. • Shell Rotella T was a sponsor for the first 6 years until 2010 when they went through some major changes within the company but I am very happy to say that they came back as a Major Sponsor in 2014 and have now been a sponsor for a total of 7 years. • ZZ Chrome first became a Major Sponsor in 2008 and they have remained a Major Sponsor the last 7 years. (They have also supplied the majority of chrome and stainless that adorn the trucks at the shows.) • Peterbilt of Red Deer became a Major Sponsor the year that Alberta Big Rig Weekend moved to Red Deer. They have continued to be a Major sponsor for the past 5 years. • This year we welcomed AMC Insurance as a new Major Sponsor. Hopefully they too will continue to support the shows in the coming years. There is no doubt that the Dale Feechuk’s dream of a Truckers Family Weekend would not be alive and well today without the support of both our Major Sponsors and our Trophy Sponsors. These companies are a rare breed in that they not only know the importance of giving back to the industry that supports them but they actually reach into their pocket and put their money where their mouth is. I would like to encourage all our readers to take note of the companies who make these event possible and, if you have the opportunity, support them and their businesses like they support you.

And most of all, THANK YOU to our show & shine participants for another great year! PAGE 19
