Scott and Angie Schmid of Scott’s Auto Service, an Auto Value customer of Al’s
Automotive Supply in Granite City, Illinois, said the Ultimate Outdoor Adventure trip was a “one-of-a-kind adventure.”

“The magnitude of this trip is hard to put into words,” said Angie Schmid of Scott’s Auto Service, an Auto Value customer of Al’s Automotive Supply in Granite City, Illinois. “This entire experience was first-class all the way! From the activities and excursions to food and drink it was a one-of-a-kind adventure. Big Cedar Lodge was the perfect setting, our hosts from the Alliance were a lot of fun, and this group of winners from all over the U.S. were the best bunch of people. Congratulations to all of the winners. This is a trip we will never forget!”

The promotional event kicked off on Oct. 2 when the sweepstakes grand prize winners flew into Missouri and were welcomed with an evening of food, fun and games at Fun Mountain, a 50,000-square-foot center of endless entertainment at Big Cedar Lodge, Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper’s hosting site.
