5th Annual Driver Banquet and Top Dawg Awards Recap

2015 Bay & Bay Driver Banquet

This year's Driver Banquet and Top Dawg Awards were an especially exciting celebration since this was the 5th annual event. Every year, Bay & Bay Transportation honors and recognizes the outstanding drivers that have made our company such a great one. The banquet was held Jan. 31 at the Sheraton Bloomington Hotel. As always, the main focus of the banquet was to celebrate our drivers, and thank them for all of the hard work they did in 2014.

The Top Dawg Awards ceremony is one of the biggest draws of the banquet and celebration. Winners received a plaque, Bay & Bay decal for their truck, a gift card, and raffle tickets. The Top Dawg is determined by whoever is the top-producing truck driver in each division of the company. This year’s Top Dawgs include:

  • Pam Hokanson – Rosemount Mileage Owner/Operator
  • Dennis Rasch – Rosemount Company Driver
  • Denny Hook – Burnsville Company Driver
  • David Foster – Rosemount Percentage Owner/Operator

Congratulations to the 2014 Top Dawg winners!

There is more to “winning” than just being the top-producer. The Driver Banquet also serves as a time to honor those that have been with Bay & Bay Transportation for 10 years or longer. We recognize both the previous honorees and the new drivers who will be added to our Wall of Fame. The group for 2014 includes:

  • Brad Bunn
  • Alvin Hanson
  • Arlen Holland
  • Steve Holmberg
  • Larry Jackson

From awards to raffles, everyone had the chance to walk away a winner during the banquet. Prizes ranged from substantial gift cards to TVs, iPads, and other great gifts. Some of the biggest prizes included trips. Winners headed to Las Vegas are Pam Hokanson, Robert Kotfila, Joel Ortiz, David Foster, and Brad Miles. Additionally, two personalized trips were awarded to Duane Peterson and David Perdue.

Once again, Bay & Bay Transportation would like to thank each and every one of our drivers for helping us have an excellent 2014! Congratulations to the winners, and thank you all for celebrating with us. We can’t wait until next year!
