Coach's Corner

Coach’s Corner – Q3, 2020

Thanks to my creative wife Nancy for providing a special 70th birthday during this time of COVID-19.

Initially, the thought of having a 70th birthday was not very inspirational. So I took on the challenge to change a negative into a positive, i.e. “John’s 70th Swim Challenge”. I discovered the annual swim event “Got2Swim” put on by local nonprofit Colin’s Hope was a victim of the coronavirus, and knew I had found my 70th birthday inspiration and challenge. 70 swims in 70 days, raising $7,000.

And one final #70 proclamation – the definition of old age is established to include everyone who is at least one day older than me!

This quarter’s TyRex Tribune theme can best be described as having a Dinosaur theme and dealing with COVID-19 as an entrepreneurial business family, and of course our TyRex Family commitment to the community featuring our RecognizeGood Legends and Lighthouse programs. Who could have ever predicted in January what COVID-19 would have in store for us in 2020?

TyRex is very excited about becoming a corporate sponsor of the Gault School of Archaeological Research. Check out our TyRex Virtual Dino Bingo – what an event, successfully combining our work-from-home workforce with our multi-zone TyRex Technology facilities family members.

COVID-19 has changed everything at TyRex except our united company culture of “Survive, SUCCEED then Grow!” And, having some fun with our “Guess Who’s Behind the Mask?” game created by Lisa Martin.

In closing, TyRex Leadership is committed to providing a COVID-19 safe place to work while continuing to provide quality parts, products and services to our much-appreciated business partners.

Welcome back Andrew! We barely had time to miss you. Here’s to your good health and strong leadership, leading the TyRex Business Family into its exciting technology future.

Thanks for listening!
