TLRA 2014 Rodeo

Are you ready to Rodeo?  The Texas Lineman's Rodeo Association and the Advisory board have been meeting and planning another year of competition at the GBRA Nolte Island Park on July 19, 2014. The events are being finalized, the judges are working on the work procedures and the field construction day has been set for March 6th 2014.   The build day is a great day to reflect on our past as it’s the 178th anniversary of the fall of the Alamo.   As Texans, we are a strong, proud, people that honor our history and are committed to building a great future that will provide the new generations of Texans strong opportunities with the electrical power we provide them.

The 2014 Texas Lineman's Rodeo may very well be the most challenging and the best competition yet.  We are sure that the utilities, families, friends and supporters will have plenty of fun while the competitors are show casing their talents for all to see.  And the BBQ ain’t bad either.

As we have committed for the last 17 years, the Board is working on the details to provide a great time at a minimal cost to all those that participate.   Once again we’ve placed an special order for a nice 80 degree partly cloudy day with a light breeze for Nolte Island.   Now that comes with a slight margin of error of 20 to 30 degrees.  The Farmers Almanac indicates the weather the week of the rodeo will be just right for the hottest lineman’s rodeo in the nation.

The 2014 Scholarship Application is completed and should be posted for those 2014 graduating seniors who are planning to attend a university, college or a trade school in the fall.   The Board has approved a total of $5,000 to be granted to no more than 10 graduates.  Look for the Scholarship tab on the website for more information.

The Chief judges are continuing to refine the events and work procedures so we can post them so everyone can start their practicing and honing their skills for the competition.   We hope to have the events and work procedures posted by mid March.

The TLRA Rodeo is made possible because of the generous donations of our sponsors, vendors and supporters that ensure the three days of events that surround the competition are made available to all utilities at the lowest possible cost.  If you or someone you know would be interested in sponsoring any part of the Rodeo, please have them get in touch with us.

May God Bless and keep you all safe and healthy,
TLRA Board of Directors
