Ronnie, Managing Publisher 850-547-0102 Well, I thought the best way to start the New Year is to give you all our Solid Gold Smiles ~ or at least a reasonable facsimile thereof. As always, we are eagerly looking forward to another year doing what we do best - serving our friends in the drilling indus- try. That is what makes each of us smile from ear-to-ear each and every day. You are our family, and we will do whatever we can to help you do what you do best for your customers and this wonderful industry of drilling. If you are looking for a certain product, service, or even person in the drilling indus- try and are just having a hard time doing that - please pick up the phone and call 850-547-0102 and ask the WWDR Team, “where, what, or who”. I guarantee you will get the help you need as quickly as possible. And guess what else? You don’t owe us a dime for that information - because you called the one and only ~ WorldWide Drilling Resource ® . We say what we mean and do what we say. I guess you could say, our middle name is “Integrity”. Now onto the New Year. This NEW year has a bit of a change up for us with regards to some trade shows we have been attending since the founding of this company in 2003. While we have always gone out of our way to ensure full coverage for as many events as possible, and as they say “neither rain nor sleet, nor snow (and there has been some bad snow!) nor cancelled flights, kept us from covering those events”, what has happened came as quite a shock to us as much as it may now be for you to be reading it here. No, I won’t go into the details. Just know, this was not at the request or suggestion of the WWDR Team. From all of us here at WorldWide Drilling Resource ® , we will miss being with you, wish you all the best with your event, and pray things change next year so we can visit with those friends we missed this year.* KEEP SMILING! We Will See you on the trail! NEXT STOPS - Mountain States And Virginia *This was to be included in January - but space is some- times an issue.
