To close out the ASAE Fellows annual retreat later this month, Wes Ehrecke will take the microphone and hand out the Hammies, the awards he invented about 20 years ago. The trophies are mostly trade-show-type freebies that Ehrecke, CEO of the Iowa Gaming Association, has collected over the previous year. But when Ehrecke recognizes each fellow with a little humor and insight, these small items are more than just trinkets.
