I was humbled and flattered to get an invite to the 2011 Ranger Advantage Tour. The event was 2 days, and gave me a chance to see the Ranger Boats ‘family’. Besides getting great insights into Ranger Boats, the 5 Star Advantage Program, and what is new with the products and marine industry products that are installed on Ranger Boats, it was a chance to test drive boats on the lake and also get a tour of the Ranger Boats Factory.
Ranger Boats was more than accommodating, and put on one heck of an event. The tour of the factory, or the ‘plant tour’ as it was called was off the charts. I mean, like getting to walk and get a tour of the Chevy assembly line or something. They welcomed pictures and video, and I did my best to keep up with tour group, because there was a lot to take in and observe. Imagine how few business welcome folks to come on in, video our plant, and just have their clients, business partners, competitors ( you know it happens ), etc just walk thru and take it all in. That speaks to confidence in what you do and how you do it. I really enjoyed the event, and was great to get exposed to what is going on in the industry.
