With the first PET decorating contest being an incredible success, we decided to keep the Thanksgiving tradition going for the Second Annual PET Decorating Contest. As part of the “2 Groups, 1 Family” iRex initiative, seven teams signed up not only to work together assembling a Personal Energy Transportation (PET) vehicle, but to then decorate their PET with a Thanksgiving theme. Teams put their own twist on the Thanksgiving themes, which included The Walking Dead, Star Wars, and The Peanuts! The combination of creativity, imagination, innovation and community citizenship in this activity represents the unique culture of the TyRex family. The winning team was announced at the TyRex Annual “Say Thanks” Giving Day, which is one of the special times each year that all of the TyRex companies come together as one family.
Votes from “Say Thanks” Giving lunch attendees and special guest judges, including PET-Austin president John Rudd, were tallied. PETs must be ride-able without limitation and were judged based on originality and creativity. The SabeRex Wild Turkeys (Carlos, James, Andrew, Kenny, Larry, Jeff and Sonia) took first place with their impressive chuck wagon, just beating out The iRex Forgiven Turkey (Ericka, Nelsy, Angelica, Elsa and Maria). Megladon’s Turkey Trotters (Cynthia, Donna and April) took home the third place ribbon with their magnificent tee-pee. A BIG thank-you goes out to these participants and to everyone who contributed to this event!
