Congratulations to Brian, K-Shard and to all of the competitors in both competitions. As usual my staff stuck me with booth duty so I was unable to watch but I heard the scores were very close this year. The level of professionalism exhibited by contestants has improved over the years and I am extremely impressed with how supportive the competitors are of each other.

Below are a few photos of the show that Korey put together. The happy guy holding up the trophy and $10,000 check is Brian Fenner of Safe Glass Technologies and at the bottom right is 3rd place winner Robert Rask of Integra Glass. Robert's wife Mellisa, currently 6 months pregnant, also competed in the event.

Windshield repair was not part of the Replacement Competition, but K-Shard of GlassPro keeps Delta Kits Products on hand: "I don't always repair windshields, but when I do...I prefer and Delta Kits' products."

I was able to watch guys compete for $3,000 in the architectural window film tint off, $5,000 in the automotive glass tint off, and $10,000 for the windshield replacement Olympics. The competitions were intense and everyone was on their "A" game. I had the privilege to judge the 9 contestants in the windshield repair Olympics and I must say that all of the techs were doing their best at their best while being judged on their professionalism, vehicle preparation, customer interaction, repair technique, appearance of completed repair, and post repair procedures.
