Cherry Creek Schools will again host the Summit in 2019 at Cherokee Trails High School.

AMERICA’S BEST TECHNICIAN CONTEST
Most of America’s Best committee has retired and are looking for new committee members.
David Anderson reported that the Lee’s Summit School District will be hosting the 2018 tech contest. America’s Best Committee would like to restructure the “contest” and use it as a Technicians Training for the state winners. America’s Best would like to come up with new incentives. In past years, factory tours were done by the major component manufacturer like Cummins, Paccar, Thomas, etc. The factories would sponsor the training and provide everything. America’s Best would like to make it more of a training instead of a contest.

Congratulations to Kyle Shanahan from Academy 20 and Zach Davis from Douglas County who will be representing Colorado at America’s Best this year in Kansas City.

VENDOR PRESENTATION
Jason Seyfried and Gene Damron from ATTP and Dennis Belanger from LiquiTube Tire Sealant. Dennis explained that LiquiTube is Ethyl glycol based and cleans up with water. Because it is antifreeze bases, tires run up to 35° cooler and stay fluid up to -45°. LiquiTube seals the bead, rim, and weather cracking and totally balances the tire. It lines the inside of the tire with 100% protection. It is installed through the valve stem (except TPMS, brake bead to install). The installation pump is sealed so no cleaning necessary. LiquiTube offers a money back guarantee.

Thanks to ATTP for the bar-b-que.
