Thank you to all that attended the 2016 Texas Lineman’s Rodeo and spent their weekend at beautiful Nolte Island with 27 of Texas’ finest utilities in the spirit of competition. This year's Rodeo was one of the best yet. We had 45 Journeyman Teams, 119 Apprentices and 39 Cook Teams competing to be called the best in Texas. Congratulations to all of those that persevered the heat, humidity, the strong competition and received recognition for the hard fought trophies. The Texas Lineman’s Rodeo is an excellent example of why Texas is, and continues to be the greatest State in the Union. From Texarkana to El Paso, Perryton to Brownsville and every town and city in between, Texas electric utilities have the toughest, most dedicated and talented linemen in the nation.
The Texas Lineman’s Rodeo is in the business of stressing safety and performing tasks through repetition, that will make the lineman safer, more efficient and valuable to their utility and a better provider for their families. We are dedicated to helping the competitive lineman to become better teachers, mentors and leaders within their respective organizations.
The Texas Linemen’s Rodeo Association is extremely grateful to all the utilities, sponsors, vendors and volunteers that participate in the Rodeo and all of our activities. We could not do this without you. A special thanks to the Northwestern Lineman College Apprentices and their hard work throughout the weekend. The future of linework looks much brighter with the talents these young men bring to our industry.
The 2017 Texas Lineman’s Rodeo activities are scheduled for July 13-16, with the competition starting at 6:45 AM on the 15th.
May God Bless and keep you all Safe
