Fifteen educational sessions provided ample opportunity to stay abreast of developments in DOT and OSHA issues, well rehabilitation, grouting, soil cuttings, pumps and motors, and more. Approximately 40 booths in the exhibit area let drillers check out the latest supplier offerings.
The association expresses much gratitude to the sponsors of the 2002 event -- Aermotor Pumps, Bradford Supply, Foremost Industries, HOK Sales, Amtrol and Tri-State Tubular. We'll add our thanks to the companies -- Larson-Becker, Preferred Pump and Wilmar Pump -- that took care of the hospitality suite action; much fun was had, indeed.
