Wrap Contest at WrapsCon

Main Sponsors; "Paint is Dead", KPMF Vinyl and Mimaki

I have served as the head judge at wrap contests all over the world. It has been a great honor and I have met so many awesome people. Being an installer myself, I have truly enjoyed meeting the contestants, watching them work and learning from them. Someday maybe I’ll write a book or a blog about the amazing things I’ve seen. But for today be happy with a paragraph – from me – and from a recent competitor, Chad Parrish. He sent a nice email to myself, one of the other judges, Paul Roba (the tall gentleman in the back row) and Dirk Moebes (to my right and Paul’s left in the back row), the event organizer. He included this photo. Scroll down to read his email. In all the contests I have judged I have never had a contestant write me afterwards, this is a first. And the fact he was happy makes it even better. Thanks Chad!

Hello again guys, I hope all is well and everyone made it home safe from Indy! I just wanted to say thanks again for helping bring WrapsCon and everything that went along with it, you guys did an awesome job. Now that it is over I almost miss that its over, it was such a great experience and I can’t count how many new relationships and new friends I had the chance to meet and talk wraps with.

Its so funny because I never had the intention of entering that wrap contest, I just didn’t want to be walking around all day because Jeff and Lance had entered it right away. So to end up in the finals was nothing but a surprise, then to come home with a trophy was nothing but a cherry on top. It was such a great experience I would not trade it for anything in the world. Again thanks for all your hard efforts and everything you guys put forth in giving installers like myself a place to gather, compete, learn and be able to grow from each others experiences, its much appreciated!!

Sincerely,

Chad Parrish – Owner
