Contestant Close Up: Doug Harper

AGRR magazine and the daily email newsletter are marking the days until the Auto Glass Technician Olympics by introducing this year's competitor field with a daily contestant profile.

Binswanger Glass in Hickory, N.C., is sending Doug Harper to the Auto Glass Technician Olympics in November to try his hand at bringing home the title of "World's Best Auto Glass Technician." Binswanger Glass is an AGRSS-registered company.

Married with two children, Harper has been installing auto glass for 23 years and was named "Tech of the Month" by AGRR magazine in 2000. In his spare time, Harper enjoys camping, watching college football and attending car shows.

He will be installing with SIKA brand adhesives during the competition.

The Auto Glass Technician Olympics, now in its second year, is co-sponsored by the Independent Glass Association (IGA) and AGRR magazine. The event follows on the heels of the second annual Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard (AGRSS) Conference and both events, along with the National Windshield Repair Association Conference and the Windshield Repair Olympics are co-located this year with the Auto Glass Expo @ NACE.

The events will be held November 1-4, 2006 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
