AMEC’s fifth annual Lineman’s Rodeo is shaping up to be another successful event! 12 Cooperatives will be represented, with 13 teams and a total of 59 linemen registered to compete on September 28 and 29.  The Rodeo will feature individual and team competitions for apprentice and journeymen linemen, lunch both days, a reception on Wednesday evening and the awards ceremony on Thursday.  Competitive events include a knowledge test, hurt-man rescue, modified pole climb, equipotential grounding & insulator change out, transformer arrestor change out, and several mystery events that will be revealed to the participants on September 23.   A number of corporate sponsors have donated to the event, including several that will have a vendor booth set up during the rodeo.  All proceeds from this event will benefit future international projects sponsored by Missouri Electric Cooperatives.  The event is open for all to attend.  Please feel free to join us at any time throughout the competition, visit our vendor sponsors and witness the impressive skills of our linemen on display.
