Afterwards, Dave Fraser, MC and national director for the Atlantic chapter, explained the evening's activities, which included a casino night followed by the traditional Chinese auction. The evening was well-attended, with over 90 people present.

The trade show took place Saturday, Feb. 12. There were 40 booths filled with a wide variety of products for rental companies to view. At the luncheon, Wayne Beckett, incoming national CRA president, addressed those in attendance, focusing the spotlight on the wide range of CRA member benefits, from
driver training and group insurance to the coming cost of the business
survey the association is organizing.
