The Palm Beach Pool Show on August 21 was held at the Palm
Beach Marriott. Horizon Pool & Patio, for the third
consecutive year, won a $500 Visa card for bringing the most attendees to the
show. Attendees took advantage of the free admittance with
pre-registration and pre-purchase of auction raffle tickets. This put
them on the show floor quicker by bypassing the lengthy check-in lines.
Many kudos to the volunteers that helped with setup, registration check-ins,
cleanup, and the auction. Matt Wills, Red Rhino Leak Detection, planned
and executed a superb auction this year. Thank you, Matt, for a job well
done. Without our volunteers, attendees and exhibitors the show would not
be the success it is known to be.
