Raffle Winners! John Dixon and Charles Dunbar III

We finished up another CPO® Certification Class in San Diego this past Thursday and Friday, and it was a great mix of students from various fields in our industry.  Pictured on the right are a couple of pool guys that were in the class  — they were happy to be there!

John Dixon (left) won a free seat in our class at the IPSSA Region 6 Table Top that we raffled off in Redlands this past February.  John is an IPSSA member of the Temecula/Murrieta chapter.  Charles Dunbar (on the right) also won a CPO® class seat, but at the IPSSA Region 7 table top in San Diego, which was also in February.  Charles is currently a United Pool Association (UPA) member, but is soon-to-be an IPSSA member (he likes the ongoing training that IPSSA promotes)!  Way to go guys!  It was great to have you!
