The 6th Annual NSUJL Lineworkers Rodeo in Clearfield, PA was on June 23, 2018, and 19 journeymen linemen teams and 54 apprentices donated entry fees to participate in the rodeo.
The competitors participated in a speed climb, hurtman rescue along with two mystery events. Competitors traveled to the Clearfield Fairgrounds from all over the country. There were linemen from California, Texas, Florida and even Canada. All competitors received the following items: a long-sleeve T-Shirt and a free mini bucket from Lineman’s Supply. In conclusion, the weather projected to be a downpour, however as the day went on the sun shined over the fairground. The sunny weather helped draw a large crowd!
