Linemen skills on display at annual challenge
On June 3, they put their skill, speed, and safety knowledge to the test as they competed to represent the company at the International Lineman’s Rodeo.
One-person (apprentice) and three-person (journeyman) teams competed in tryouts in Syracuse, NY, and in Millbury, MA. Judging criteria included speed and safety when scaling utility poles, as well as participants’ ability to rescue injured lineworkers.
Top performers will join lineworkers competing from around the world at the 34th annual International Lineman’s Rodeo, in Bonner Springs, Kansas, on Oct. 14.
The rodeo has grown to include more than 200 journeyman teams and 250 apprentice teams.
