2018 Lineman’s Rodeo Results

Lineman’s Rodeo Final Results

October 15, 2018

Despite the deep mud, rain and chilly temps, PAR had an excellent turn out at the 2018 Lineman’s Rodeo. More than 220 lineman teams and 300 apprentices competed, and the PAR team finished 11th in its division and our apprentice finished 7th. We also had two PAR linemen competing on behalf of IBEW local 53 who finished 5th. That’s not bad considering the amount of participants competing.

Congratulations to all the linemen who participated!

The 35th Annual International Lineman’s Rodeo & Expo was held October 10–13, 2018. All three days of the event took place in Overland Park, Kansas, at the Overland Park Convention Center. The Rodeo was held October 13 in Bonner Springs, Kansas, at the National Agriculture Center & Hall of Fame, with the awards banquet back at the OP Convention Center that evening.

The 2018 Expo featured some of the industry’s leading manufacturers and suppliers, where the latest developments in tools, equipment, technology, and services were featured. The Lineman’s Rodeo attracted competitors from around the world. Events included Hurt Man Rescue, Pole Climb, and two mystery events.
