Pacific Northwest Lineman Rodeo
Thank you to all the participants who participated in this year’s event!
Over the past 26 years, this event has grown more than expected. Each year as the number of teams and apprentices increase the need for judges coincide. This year, for the teams that registered a judge, thank you, without their participation this event could not be possible.
In past years, shortage of judges meant they could not take breaks, have the opportunity to enjoy the rest of the activities, eat their lunches on the run and have the longest day of all the volunteers. Consider your fourth member a necessity.
This year, we also thankfully did not have to resort to our contingency plan to cancel an event due to an insufficient number of judges.
Starting in 2020:
- Teams, Apprentices, Pre-apprentices, and Judges registrations will all be on-line only.
- Teams WILL NOT be able to register without a team judge.
- Teams arriving without a team judge present on Saturday morning WILL receive an automatic deduction (actual amount TBD). No Exceptions…
The dead-line for registrations and maximum number of competitors for teams and apprentices will be communicated at a later date.
Again, thank you for your participation and we look forward to seeing you and your families again next year!
