We’re pumped up as we roll through August still riding high from our 11th Annual Tiresocks Campout. We hold the event at the beautiful Wellington Lake in Bailey, CO and we had a blast! As a team, we enjoyed friendly competition, a raffle with the help of the best assistants around, and of course, some campfire camaraderie while we sipped on some cold ones. It was the perfect opportunity to hang out and bond outside of the normal daily hustle. Check out some of our campout shenanigans here.
We hope you had a fantastic 4th of July and that your business is booming this summer! We’re not just about business at TireSocks though. We believe in fostering strong bonds and creating great moments for our team. This month we’re all fired up for our 11th annual TS campout. We escape the hustle & bustle, enjoy a few cold ones, some great food, fun games and just connect. It really doesn’t get much better than that! Stay tuned for photographic evidence of our shenanigans in next month’s newsletter.
Welcome to summer and safety. As it should be in construction, safety is a priority at every jobsite. June signifies the beginning of the summer construction rush and is also National Safety Month. The industry is encouraged to increase focus on accident prevention by working to raise awareness around the leading causes of preventable injury. Just as projects heat up at this time of year, so does the weather. Make sure your people are familiar with summer specific safety practices as well, including proper hydration guidelines, heat stress prevention measures, and the use of personal protective equipment suitable for the hotter weather. Check out more in “6 Ways to Beat the Heat This Summer.” There are some great reminders and perhaps you’ll even learn something new.
As the summer approaches and the construction season gets into full swing, we know you’ve got a lot on your plate. Managing teams, juggling schedules, and keeping your job sites safe and clean can be a challenge, but we’re here to help.
Spring is officially on its way and there is a lot to be excited about, especially with the warmer weather on the horizon. Speaking of warmer weather, we had the opportunity to go to the 2023 ARA Trade Show in Orlando last month. Our team was able to meet and interact with a ton of our customers and it was so great spending time with all of you. We can’t wait for next year’s show already!
We want to start by thanking everyone who participated in our 6th annual Pick ’em Pool! This year’s NFL season was a wild ride: Tom Brady coming out of retirement, Mr. Irrelevant (Brock Purdy) taking the 49ers to the NFC Championship, the Texans winning the last week of the season to lose #1 pick, etc. Overall there was a ton of memorable moments this NFL season and we want to thank you for being apart of our Pick ’em Pool!
Exponentially, some years feel like more than one year, are we right? 2022 was one of those for us, and we’re proud to have survived the longest, most exhausting year we can recall. However, we prevailed by embracing our inner zombie and using our inner Mike Tyson—the one who famously said, “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”
It’s October already! A special time of year that invites spooky decorations, football, and pumpkin spice lattes. The cooler weather also brings a welcome break from the heat for our construction workers before the chill of winter arrives.
While you’re shopping for your best Halloween costumes, don’t forget to check out your ranking in the NFL TireSocks Pick’em Pool.

Watch out for David, Charles, and Jeff, who are at the top of the customer leaderboard.
September is a special month for us in the construction industry; it means we’ve wrapped up all the big summer projects and are gearing up for the next big job. There’s also something else to look forward to—the first holiday since July 4th (and the unofficial end of summer) is soon approaching. That’s right; Labor Day is just around the corner. We hope that you’re able to enjoy the time off work with your family and want to inform you that we will be closed on Monday, September 5, to celebrate the holiday.
Speaking of having a good time, TireSocks sported a fun and dirty time at the MudGirl 5K obstacle course on August 13 in Colorado Springs. Take a look for yourself here.
August is upon us! As summer winds down and fall comes around the corner, we hope you’ve soaked in enough sun to last a year. But whether you’ve had your fill of fun or not, there’s one more event you can’t afford to miss. Feel free to either cheer or join in on the fun as our team battles it out in the MudGirl 5K in Colorado Springs. The date? August 13. We’ll be rooting for ourselves!
