Vermeer Texas-Louisiana, Bobcat of Lubbock Host Annual Tailgate Event

Tue November 02, 2021 - West Edition #23

Apparently folks in Lubbock are ready to get back to post-COVID normal. At least that's the impression that was left by the nearly 300 customers that showed up as guests of Vermeer Texas-Louisiana and Bobcat of Lubbock at the companies' annual "tailgate" event held on Oct. 8, the day before home team Texas Tech would take on TCU.

It was a diverse group of customers that converged on the co-branded facility at 3415 Slaton Rd. in Lubbock. From landscapers to pipeline companies, from ranchers to municipalities, the group was representitive of the varied industries served by Vermeer and Bobcat in West Texas.

Compact machinery was on display from Bobcat; skid steers, excavators, tractors and even the company's newest offering — zero turn mowers. On the Vermeer side, chippers, horizontal directional drills and trenchers were the main attraction.

The event has traditionally been one of the more popular ones put on by the Texas Vermeer and Bobcat dealer, but it was not held last year.
