The 2016 AARA Annual Weekend

The AARA 18th Annual Meeting and 2nd Memorial Mark Buessing Golf Tournament was held on Sept. 16-17, 2016.


The event filled weekend started on Friday, September, 16th with a meet and greet cocktail reception sponsored by SA Recycling. The beautiful courtyard at the Crowne Plaza San Marcos Resort kept everyone cool as they enjoyed the warm evening with good conversations, drinks and hor’doeuvres.


We were lucky enough to have Mike Swift, the ARA president, join us and mingle!


The weather was warm Saturday morning but 108 people showed up to play golf at San Marcos Golf Course in Chandler, Arizona and enjoyed the continental breakfast sponsored by Rim Vault.

We changed things up for the 2nd Memorial Mark Buessing Golf Tournament. This year it was a flighted 4 on 4 scramble with contests on every hole and an additional putting contest sponsored by Liberty Iron & Metal. This really kept things interesting.



The golf tournament proved to be fun for all ages. A special thank you to Tom Buessing for all the time and energy he put into rounding up the sponsors and golfers for this great event.


The Liberty Iron and Metal putting contest winner was Fergie!

A big thank you to, Spectrum, Coyote Towing, Blue Grace Logistics, Riteway Auto, Consolidated Personnel Services, AAA Pallet, Manheim Phoenix, Parts Trader, Phoenix Automotive Cores, IAA, Power Plus products, RSA Cores, Hollander, LKQ,  DV Towing, and Brock supply for being hole sponsors.



In addition, we had URG, Custom Auto, Aviation Auto, Martin Auto Museum, American Auto Recycling, New Way Auto parts, M&R Auto, Alma Auto parts, MKT Analytics, Dulaney Auto Parts, Supershear Inc., Hidden Valley Auto, Just Trucks and Van, Stadium Auto Parts, Global Parts Solutions, Carolina Auto Recyclers, Nordstroms Auto, James Environmental, Sabori Core Consulting, RAS, and American Group Logistics as sponsors on Mark’s Friend’s hole. A big part of this event is to raise money for the ARA scholarship fund. Thanks to all of the sponsors we were able to raise over $7000!!!! And everyone had fun doing it.


All of the teams hit the course with gusto and not only did the balls fly, but the teams had a blast and worked up a good appetite.



Thanks to Wendy Wilson and her friend for all of their volunteer efforts!



There were so many winners that afternoon at the awards luncheon following the tournament; it seemed that everyone walked away with a prize.


The overall tournament winner was Mike Pierson’s team. Mike along with Jeff Inman, Trace Udall and Jarrod Wright took home the trophy until next year. Nice Job Team!


The Saturday evening exhibitor’s reception sponsored by Jeff Jaramillo Insurance and G.J. Sullivan was well attended and enjoyed by all.  SA Recycling sponsored a wonderful meal at the Crowne Plaza which was followed by the 18th annual meeting.


Brent Sapergia from SA Recycling started things off with a few good stories then, Kristie Werner from URG, did an excellent presentation on the core program and e-commerce. Next,’s Jeff Mastervich had an informative discussion on Website services with the members, followed by a message from Mike Swift, president of ARA. The final speaker, Reuben Farris from Phoenix Automotive Cores, had an interesting presentation on the core program benefits.

Arizona Color Vehicle Wraps and Graphics provided signage for the event and printed the event program. A special thank you to Jim Foxwell, Samantha Marcantonio, Matt Nisbet and all the staff!

Watch for details soon about the 2017 meeting. If you’d like to help plan the 2017 Annual meeting, have some ideas, or suggestions to make the event more fun and memorable for the members, email the AARA at or contact any of the AARA board members.
