When we are not managing forestland resources

Posted on: March 15th, 2019

MSUSA’s President Terry McKenzie displays the plaque awarded his 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood judged as the “Best Restored” classic at the Good Guys Lonestar Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway near Fort Worth.

What do members of the Bird Forestry and Advanced Ecology team do when we are not managing forestland resources for customers? For starters, some enjoy classic cars while some enjoy fishing.

Terry McKenzie’s 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood captured the “Top Restored” award at the “Good Guys 9th Spring Lonestar Nationals” at Texas Motor Speedway near Fort Worth last weekend. Terry displayed four vehicles from his collection in the show where some 1,300 hot rods, customs, muscle cars, restored classics, and more gathered for one of the region’s largest automotive events.

When awards were presented, Terry’s Cadillac had been judged as the “Best Restoration” of them all. Congratulations to Terry and his immaculate 1956 Cadillac on the honor.

Terry serves as president of MSUSA, a member of the Advanced Ecology “Total Land Solution” family of companies. This is the second win this year for the car as it was also recognized as “Best in Show” at an all Cadillac event in Fort Worth last month.

Advanced Ecology’s IT Manager Lynn Johnson (right) and his brother Shelby show off a couple of nice-sized sand bass caught in the Sabine River near Logansport, Louisiana. Lynn’s team placed fourth in the Barber Sand Bass Jackpot Tournament, three ounces ahead of Shelby’s team.

While Terry was showing cars at Fort Worth, Lynn Johnson, one of Advanced Ecology’s resident outdoor enthusiasts was competing in the Barber Sand Bass Jackpot Tournament at Logansport, Louisiana. Lynn and his fishing buddy partner, Tod Hufferd, finished fourth with a total weight of 13 pounds 10.6 ounces for their tournament regulation “best five fish.”

A total of 23 teams competed for the cash and merchandise prizes awarded at the angler’s event that was the first of what will be an annual tournament, according to organizers.

Fierce competitor that he is, Lynn noted with humor that he was most proud of the finish for placing ahead of his brother, Shelby Johnson, by three ounces.

Congratulations to Lynn on his excellent tournament finish as well as his “friendly family feud” victory. Lynn serves as the IT manager for Advanced Ecology “Total Land Solution” family of companies.
