July Trivia Contest Winner!

August 1st, 2016 by

award-155595_1280

This month’s trivia question was a tough one. But we still had a few who know their Summit history!

We asked, “TapRooT® will return to San Antonio for the ___ time for the 2016 TapRooT® Summit”

We’ve had several Summits over the years, and although we do visit new locations, it seems that San Antonio is a popular spot. This year will mark out 5th Summit there. It’s such a wonderful city, and we’re excited to see all of our clients again in Texas.

There were quite a few entries, but only a few were correct. Out of those, a winner was picked at random. The winner of the July Contest is…

Brad Boehner – congratulations!

Thank you all for playing! Stay tuned for more contests this summer.

Here in the TapRooT® office, we thoroughly enjoy your all’s clever captions during our caption contests. This month, we decided to make it TapRooT® Summit themed since our trip to San Antonio is coming up soon! Take a look at the picture of one of our Tech guys, Garrett, from the 2014 TapRooT® Summit, and come up with the most clever caption you can in 5 words or less to enter to win.

May Contest Winner!

May 31st, 2016 by

The results are in, and apparently many of you know your TapRooT® Summit history. Way to go!

We asked, “In what year did Mark Paradies organize the first TapRooT® Summit?”

Although many answered correctly, I’m sure those of you who didn’t get to play are dying to know… 1994! Can you believe the TapRooT® Summit began in Gatlinburg, TN with just 33 attendees 23 years ago? We hope this gets you excited for the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit in San Antonio in August!

We had many responses, over half of them being correct, but there can only be one winner. After removing the incorrect responses and shuffling the correct ones, the winner of the May Contest is…

Charles Fowler – congratulations!

Thank you all for playing! Stay tuned for more contests this summer.
