Winners of the trip to Chicago visit CBOT

During Chatham-Kent’s first annual Farm Show, Thompsons Limited held a draw for a trip to the Chicago to Board of Trade (CBOT) in Illinois. The two winners, Jim Jenner of Merlin and Rob Butler of Croton were accompanied by Denise Shanks and Colin Elgie from our Blenheim and Kent Bridge locations.

The flight arrived in The Windy City at 9:30 am. The group was shuttled to the CBOT by Limo Taxi and was greeted at the door by Advance Trading (ATI) staff Phil Reginelli.

“It was intimidating seeing all the electronic boards that lined the walls changing several times a second but the traders were all very comfortable in their element. We also had a better bird’s eye view of the trading pits from the observation deck”, stated Denise Shanks.

After the tour the group was met by ATI’s CEO, Jay Pierce who accompanied them to the Union League Club, largely accessible by members only, where they enjoyed a wonderful meal in the main dining room.

After lunch the group was given a tour of the city by Limo taxi where they viewed some incredible architecture and learned interesting facts about Chicago. Thanks to Advance Trading for hosting the trip.

Other winners from our draw was Ed Gyetvai from the Bothwell area who won one unit of Hyland Seeds SmartStax™ corn, and John Munn of Hensall who won four bags of Hyland Roundup Ready™ soybean seed.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all who stopped by our booth.
