Second Annual Human Foosball Tournament, FT Bragg NC

The Airborne & Special Operations Museum hosted Fayetteville’s Second Annual Human Foosball Tournament with teams representing military units on Fort Bragg, church groups and businesses competed for bragging rights and to support the fundraising efforts. This year’s tournament will benefit The Vincent House.

Teams of six people attached themselves to fixed poles across the field and move to the right or left as a team in order to move the ball up the field. Twenty-four teams on four fields participate in this all-day, round-robin tournament. The foundation serves as the marketing and financial arm supporting programs and exhibits.

Bleecker Automotive Group in Red Springs is proud to support our local Ft Bragg / Fayetteville fundraising efforts and we really enjoyed watching this fun competition! Bleecker! Bleecker!

Local Ram Dealer Joins Agricultural Elite Bleecker is North Carolina’s First Certified Agriculture Dealership

When Ram trucks celebrated America’s farm and ranch families with a two minute commercial during Super Bowl XLVII, they created a relationship with those families like no other truck maker ever had.

Today, Ram dealers are proud to announce the local fulfillment of that global promise. Having completed an agriculture awareness curriculum endorsed by the National Agriculture In The Classroom Organization,  Ram Trucks welcomes Bleecker Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to the ranks of Certified Agriculture Dealership. A first of its kind in the truck industry, this certification lets the area’s more than 4000 farm & ranch families know the dealership understands what makes their business different. It also signals the dealership’s commitment to the timing of wheat and oat harvest, calving season and third cutting hay by adjusting operations to accommodate the demands of each commodity, and every season.

To become a Ram Certified Agriculture Dealership, Bleecker CDJR was required to commit a minimum of three team members to successfully completing the curriculum prepared by it’s agriculture partners. The
program recommended one each from Sales, Parts and Service. Your Ram Certified Agriculture Specialists at Bleecker CDJR are: Chris Tart, Andrew Scott Mosher, Hugo Peralta, John Hirsch, Nicole Westbrook and Dawn Jernigan.

With the initial curriculum complete, Bleecker CDJR’s Ram Ag Team will now participate in continuing education that extends their knowledge of everything important to North Carolina agriculture, as it happens in real time. Ongoing education, combined with what Specialists learned through the Ag Awareness curriculum, will allow this dealership to become an educated partner with area agriculture by pro-actively anticipating and meeting the changing demands of its family farm and ranch customers.

As part of being Certified Agriculture, The Ram Truck brand has also provided their Dunn, North Carolina dealer (Dunn is between Raleigh and Ft. Bragg / Fayetteville, I-95 exit 73) with some hard core tools designed specifically to help farmers and ranchers gain efficiency and find more profits in their farming operation. Its called Ram AgPack. In short … if the customer uses Ram’s $500 Farmers In America bonus cash, that farm and ranch customer is then qualified for an additional $2500-$4300 of AG-SPECIFIC products that won’t cost them anything extra.

Field & pasture forecasting services. Crop nutrition products. Ag drone technology. An agriculture “care package” bundled with the most durable truck money can buy and specialists trained specifically to know the needs of our agriculture customer. Bleecker is the whole farm & ranch package.

Ram Ag Specialist, Scott Mosher sums it up best: “Appreciation for agriculture’s needs has set deep roots with this community, this dealership, and the Ram brand. We stand ready to offer the industry something no other truck dealer can…a partnership that understands, and delivers to those needs at every level.”

For more information about what this certification means, and the Ram AgPack program please contact a Bleecker CDJR’s Ram Ag Specialist at (910) 892-1800.

Bleecker RAM is North Carolina's first and only RAM Ag Dealership
