Another Indiana Apartment Association Maintenance Mania is in the books!
This year was the 8th annual Maintenance Mania event, where attendees compete in seven skill-based events and a race car competition where the participants make pinewood derby cars out of maintenance materials. These table games are built around common maintenance activities. Some of the time events are standard for MM programs: Water Heater Installation, Faucet Installation, Flush Toilet Conversion, Icemaker Installation and a Deadbolt Test. For more information, check out http://www.iaaonline.net/sections/mania.php.
In addition, Maintenance Mania includes a series of seminars to promote different topics of interest in the field.
During the competition, Flaherty & Collins brought 41 of our maintenance staff to compete in the timed events – the largest (and loudest!) group at the event.
As always, racing the cars was one of the highlights of the day.
This year, we brought home two trophies. Paul Palacios, an accountant out of our corporate office, took home second place in the Frigidaire Icemaker Installation event. Thanks to our cheerleaders, we also brought home a spirit award!
