Thank you to the following presenters: David Arnold, Warren Zwanka, Wesley Curtis, Team Geoprobe, Lorrie Partridge, Mike Keen, Marc Nault and Doug Keller. The Friday Night Reception sponsored by Atlantic Drilling Supply and Geoprobe Systems, was a fantastic time for attendees to network and meet with the outside vendor displays.

Following the educational sessions officially opened the Trade Show Hall. The hall was sold out with more than 75 exhibiting companies. Thank you to the 2017 Sponsors and Exhibitors. Without you, the FGWA Annual Convention & Trade Show would not be a success!
