Congratulations to Hugo Gutierrez and Hasan Basic for being the top finalist in this year’s regional floor covering competition. Hasan from DSB+ and Hugo from Golden State have earned a chance to represent their skills, their shop and our Union at the National Floor Covering Competition in Las Vegas early next year to try to become the best of the best in floor covering. Hugo will be competing in the carpet contest and Hasan will be showcasing his skills in the LVP contest. It also needs to be mentioned that Hugo’s carpet mockup at the regionals this year, almost got a perfect score which has never be done before in the history of the competition. I also want to shout out the other competitors who did great jobs and should be proud that they had the confidence to go out put their knowledge and skills on the line to compete against other installers. On the carpet side Gary Gullickson from Andersons just finished right behind Hugo. On the LVP contest you had Sal De La Torre from All County Flooring, Justin Lopez from Andersons and Cody Hartwick from Local Union 1237 BT Mancini’s Sacramento.
