During each Convention, FRSA’s Affiliate Council plans a friendly competitive event and invites the 12 state affiliate chapters to participate. Entry fees and rules are established by the Affiliate Council, which is made up of the Affiliate Representative and the President from each chapter. Affiliates compete for bragging rights and get their name engraved on the FRSA Affiliate Challenge Cup. This tradition has taken place every year since 1981.
Of course, the real winner is the President’s Charity of Choice – this year, the Tunnel to Tower Foundation.
Entry fees and buy-in bets from the competition, along with donations made through the Convention registration site and personal donations to the charity, enabled FRSA to donate over $21,000 to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation – the largest amount to date raised for a charity.
Being in Daytona, home of NASCAR racing, inspired the Affiliate Council to select a slot car race as the competition. Affiliates from across the state competed and had a great time. The winners of this year’s competition were:
■ First Place – Kenny Harp, Polk County Roofing Contractors Association
■ Second Place – Katherine Cleary, Palm Beach County Roofing & Sheet Metal Contractors Association
■ Third Place – Sandy Brinson, Northeast Florida Roofing & Sheet Metal Contractors Association
■ Honorable Mention – Andrew Peet, Central Florida Roofing & Sheet Metal Contractors Association
After the competition, the racetrack was boxed up and donated to the Foundation Auction, where lucky winner, Tim Ellsworth won that competition and headed home with the race set. We thank the Affiliates and those who made donations to the 2022 Charity of Choice! Read more.
