Frys Loud and Proud March 2017 MECA PAS 40

The Fry’s Loud and Proud event was held at Fry’s Electronics in Las Vegas, NV on March 18th. Fry’s became a MECA Retail Member this year "in a BIG way, with 34 stores in 9 states,” as stated by Commissioner, Steve Stern, in a MECA news announcement on December 30, 2016. The Las Vegas show was Fry’s Electronics’ kick-off event. The show offered Show & Shine, Sound Pressure and Sound Quality contests with Fry’s sponsoring the awards, providing the store’s parking area for the venue, and food vendor trucks for lunch. Jeff Staat, Tech Team Director, and Rick Barajas, Tech Team District 2 Manager from the San Jose, California Headquarters office, worked to bring MECA events and promotions to their parking lots. They were present at the Las Vegas event. Kevin Thompson of Las Vegas Fry’s organized the event logistics with MECA California running the event. The event successfully drew competitors from Montana, Utah, Arizona, and California, in addition to local Nevada residents. Fry’s has at least two more events planned for this season in San Marcos in Southern California on May 21st and San Jose in Northern California on June 11th.

MECA Manufacturer member, U.S. Acoustics, was also represented at the Fry’s Las Vegas Loud and Proud show with a vehicle competing in Master Class. MECA appreciates the U.S. Acoustics’ presence at the event.
