Our first annual UAPA member appreciation event was a huge success! Members from UAPA and their guests were invited to Social Axe in Salt Lake City for an axe-throwing party, lunch, and a great networking opportunity. This event was a way for UAPA to say, “Thanks!”
The event started out with a lesson in axe throwing, along with some friendly competition, and ended with the top 20 axe throwers competing in an elimination-style tournament. Skyler Droubay from Double D Distribution and Jesse Averett from Geneva Rock went head-to-head to compete for the champion spot. In a drama-filled championship match, Skyler clenched the win when his axe hit the “beer can” target for 10 points on his last throw.
UAPA is quickly growing to become one of the nation’s largest asphalt associations, and it’s all thanks to our great members. We are working hard to grow the association so it can continue to give our members opportunities to learn, to network, and to get connected to all the great things happening in the asphalt pavement industry here in Utah. And, along the way, we may even throw an axe or two to celebrate.
