Out & About with OBAC

Getting out and meeting our members and future members is really important to OBAC. The gallery below shows where we've been lately. Be sure to check out our event calendar to see where we'll be in the near future.

Larry Hall NATG

North American Truckers Guild president Larry Hall explains to his members that if anything is ever going to change for drivers and owner-operators, they're going to have to set the bar higher than it's been in the past. "we can no longer settle for second best," he says. "We're pros and we will be treated as such."

Park NATG

While at the first general meeting of the North American Truckers Guild in October, Jim Park delivered his popular 2010 and Beyond presentation, outline what he believes lies ahead for drivers and owner-operators as the industry emerges from a devastating recession.

Ritchie NATG

OBAC was invited to attend the first general meeting of the the BC-based North American Truckers Guild, and to lend a hand in the fight against speed limiters in that province. Joanne Ritchie is seen here explaining the speed limiter protest post card to NATG members.

Convoy ball team

This year's Special Olympics Convoy in Paris, Ontario raised over $50,000 for the cause. The folks pictured below all managed to collect $1,000 or more  in Convoy sponsorships, thus earning themselves a spot on the baseball team. The "Convoy Refugees" managed a respectable on-field performance against the special olympics athletes' Stratford State Farm Insurance C Team, who won the provincial C-division championships at Windsor earlier in the summer.
