Martin Cieszko (L) and Tony Jackson, both of Cieszko Construction Company, have been attending the event for several years and have always enjoyed it. There was a wide assortment of John Deere machines equipped with Topcon Machine Control Systems on hand, including this 700J dozer. Making the grade is the John Deere 672GP motorgrader.  The operator reported that he liked the smooth feel of the machine. Chuck Harris (L), president, Benchmark Tool & Supply, explains how the Topcon 3DMC2 GPS system improves efficiency and saves money to Steven James, Carolina Environmental Contracting Inc., Mt Airy, N.C. There were many products displayed at different areas of the event for the guests to look over while going from station to station including the John Deere 643K forestry machine. The forecasted rain that fell didn’t keep the hearty contractors away from the annual skeet shooting event. Many of the attendees said they really enjoyed the break from the day to day. Ken Cates, Rea Contracting, Raleigh, N.C., shattered the first clay at the Flushing Quail Station. (L-R): David Tugwell, Mike Deriso and Eric Wainwright, all of Byrd Brothers, Wilson, N.C., take a break from the action. The group from Professional Tree Care, Raleigh, N.C., included (L-R) John Calloway, Drew Ware, Chris and Ryan Calloway, and Sean Honeycutt. They buy chippers and compact products from RW Moore and have attended the event any year when time permits. Brian Metcalf (L), RW Moore, Raleigh, N.C., used his Beretta 12 gauge while David Garrett, Triton Site Work Development, Raleigh, N.C., preferred his Benelli 12 gauge. Wade Tippett (L) explains to Jackie Sutton, both of Craven County Wood Energy, why he likes his Browning 12 gauge so much. Both men are avid hunters and outdoorsmen. (L-R): Joey Ross and Blane Reese, both of J&J Logging, Hendersonville, N.C., look forward to the annual skeet shooting event.  They are with their RW Moore Salesman, Brad Woodruff. Not even a blade full of wet eastern North Carolina soil could slow down the John Deere 764 high-speed dozer equipped with the 3DMC2 Topcon GPS system.

RW Moore Equipment Company Inc. and Benchmark Tool & Supply Inc. jointly held a skeet shooting customer appreciation event at Drakes Landing, the premier hunting preserve in Fuquay Varina, N.C., on Sept. 23. One hundred contractors from Eastern North Carolina attended the event.

RW Moore and Benchmark had a dozen or so John Deere machines on hand for customers to try out. Several were equipped with laser and GPS systems to help the user move the dirt precisely.

Drakes Landing has many shooting points offering various situations that mimic the actual hunting experience. They also offer quail, western style pheasant hunts and several other types.
