St. Cloud, MN - Anderson Trucking Service (ATS) rewarded four of its drivers with an all-expense paid fishing and hunting trip in Port Charlotte, Florida as part of its recent ATS Great Fishing Trip Giveaway.
ATS company drivers Walter Hooper of Oklahoma, Julian Dmytryszyn of New York, Al Ritter of South Dakota and Michael Vasseau of Arkansas were chosen from a drawing of all ATS active million mile drivers to take part in the trip that was led by professional guide Tom "Fish" Fischer.
The two-day excursion included a full day of fishing for snook, grouper, shark, red fish and tarpon along with an additional day of hunting for wild boar.
"They flew us in the corporate jet, put us up in a 5-star hotel and we were treated like kings," said winning driver Walter Hooper. Julian Dmytryszyn added, "It was a wonderful trip. I was very impressed. It was an incentive for making million miler." "We had a lot of fun. I wish it could've been longer," said Al Ritter. "I had great luck and even caught a hammerhead shark," said Michael Vasseau. "It makes me feel good as a driver and I came home with even more respect for the company."
"Life isn't just about work," said ATS CEO Rollie Anderson, who hosted the trip along with ATS's Gary Stang. "Work is important, but so is relaxation." Earlier this year, ATS took 12 other winners on an Minnesota fishing trip led by fishing great Ted Takasaki.
