"We congratulate the most recent NATE Bowl winners and look forward to
announcing many more as the contest continues through October," says Rex
Boynton, president of NATE. "It's still very early in the going, so it's our hope
that all HVACR contractors will get involved in this good-natured competition."

In addition to monthly prizes, the five contractors at the end of the contest
with the most NATE Bowl points in each of the three "divisions" will be
entered into a grand prize drawing for a Super Bowl package to be announced
in early November. Teams can get points for every NATE-certified technician
they have on staff. Additional points can be earned each time a technician
gets certified (or re-certified) or earns additional NATE credentials. All points
accrue during the NATE Bowl season, which lasts from February through
October 2008. Any HVACR contractor in the United States or Canada
