Vendors on hand showed dealers their latest product for 2019 plus offered special deals, closeouts and prizes. The Spin to Win wheel was loaded with chances for dealers to pick up some cash. Networking opportunities, prize drawings and lunch added to the day.

Jeffrey Alsop, The Next Level Car Audio-Murray UT, won the top prize at the event… a 55” TV.

Nina Contreras, SiriusXM Sr Sales Manager-Retail Sales, exhibited perfect form as she prepared to throw the double ax at the center of the target.

Kicker’s Brad Ganz, Sr Director Sales-Central US, stated “Dealers were excited to see the Kicker Marine lineup at the show. The after show Ax throwing event was a lot of fun. It was my first hatch and ax throwing event but I soon got with the program.”

Continuing, Herrin added, “The Spin to Win wheel was a lot of fun. We offered cash to dealers who stepped up with purchases at the show to spin the wheel. Dealers earned spins on the wheel based on their purchases at the show. Each spin was worth between $5. and $100. based the space where wheel landed.”

Herrin, related to 12voltnews.com. “Last year we hosted a cart racing event and this year we tried something new at Social Ax Throwing. The venue had about 10 lanes and people could throw a hatchet or an ax at a target some 12’ to 15’ away. On the target there were rings that determined the score… just like darts. All who participated, including Nina Contreras with SiriusXM who was on my team, gave it their best shot.”

Sirius XM and Pioneer were platinum sponsors of the Ax Throwing event.
