“We have been trying to put this together for some time. Now everything has come together. There is a terrific amount of interest in the area and we could have over 100 competitors at the event for Gus” Tom Eliopoulus commented to 12voltnews.com. “Gus was a best friend and worked closely with me here at Ohio Generator. It was such a shock when he left us – and so suddenly” Eliopoulus added.
