8th Annual

NCLTL Golf Tournament

The 8th Annual North Carolina League of Transportation & Logistics Golf Tournament was a great success. The Tournament took place Thursday, September 19 at Rock Barn Golf & SPA.  

A total of 22 Teams enjoyed the Tournament. Ninety Golfers had a chance to win the $10,000 hole-in-one prize but we will have to wait till next year to give away $10,000 once again. Mark Williams with Charlotte Pipe & Foundry used a 7 iron on the 9th hole in 2013 to win the $10,000 prize, so it can happen. 

The proceeds from the Golf Tournament will go to the NCLTL Scholarship program.

Also this year we had a toy drive that went Great! You guys came through and a lot of kids will have big smiles on their faces at Christmas this year. The Toys will be handed off to the Toys for Tots Foundation.

A big thanks goes out to our golf chairman Bob Stone who did a great job of putting together a first-class outing. Also Special thanks to Tom Turner, Jerry Carter, Ellis Brotherton and Dave Danner who helped with putting out and picking up the Tee Box signs, taking pictures and overseeing the $10,000 hole-in-one hole.

Winning Teams
This was a close shootout as the winning team came in with a 53 and the next three Teams came in at 54 and had to decide 2nd, 3rd and 4th based on the best Team score starting on 18th then 17, 16 etc.

2019 Bill H. Teague Lifetime Achievement Award
Recipient, Britt Colley


Britt Colley began his career in transportation in 1981 after stints playing baseball at the University of Richmond and junior college ball in Florida. His spent his entire 36-year career dedicated to Epes Transport System. Britt started his career at Epes as a city dispatch trainee in Richmond, VA and worked his way through the ranks to eventually become the company’s President and Chief Operating Officer. Under his leadership, Epes Transport grew to one of the nation’s top 100 trucking companies. Britt was known for his operational expertise and his ability to connect with others. Britt was quoted in 2013 as crediting his success to “a real team and family atmosphere that comes from ownership and key leadership.” Along with Mr. Al Bodford, Britt led by example to create the “team and family atmosphere” at Epes Transport that led to great customer relations and fueled Epes’ continued growth and success throughout his tenure. His passion for his work was unmatched, but his desire was to instill that same passion in all of those he encountered.

Throughout Britt’s career, he was a huge advocate for professional truck drivers and used his time involved in transportation organizations to share his knowledge of the industry on their behalf. Britt was a long-time member of the North Carolina League of Transportation & Logistics and one of the league’s great supporters. He enjoyed attending the informative events and especially the annual meetings, highlighted by the hole-in-one that he hit during the afternoon golf outing in 2016! In addition to the NCLTL, Britt was also involved with the North Carolina Trucking Association, serving as that body’s Chairman during 2013 - 2014.

Britt’s life wasn’t all about Epes Transport and the trucking industry. In 1987, Britt married Angela and together they raised 4 children; Amber, Shaun, Matthew and Todd. He was a dedicated husband, father, grandfather and friend, who was the rock of his family. He loved all things sports. In addition to being an avid golfer, Britt enjoyed baseball and cheering on the Dallas Cowboys and Duke Blue Devils basketball. One of Britt’s other favorite pastimes was spending time with his family and friends at the coast.
