The 20th Annual National Brockway Truck Show was a huge success. It began with the Brockway Ice Cream Cruise In on Thursday evening with lots of fun, food and conversation. Friday started off with the Huskie Drive which was recorded by photos taken from a drone and a helicopter photographer. This event was enjoyed at the Greek Peak Mountain Resort in Virgil, NY by 90 people arriving there in 42 Brockways and a few cars. Lunch was served and truck games were played with lots of humorous memories. Wine tasting, the Italian dinner, Brockway auction and spectacular fireworks completed Friday's activities. Saturday started off with the Brockway parade and activities on Main Street, Cortland. The awards ceremony resulted in the following:
Oldest Brockway truck - Bob Messersmith - 1928 flatbed
Brockway trailered the longest distance - Aaron Tipton - 753 miles
Brockway driven the longest distance - Bruce Taylor - 353.1 miles
People's Choice award (leads next year's parade) - Andy Preiser 1969 361
John Potter Memorial Award (Trucker's Choice) (on next year's dash plaque) - Aaron Tipton 1946 260XW-3

Brockway reunion.
