AMP Lineworkers Rodeo

The fourth annual AMP Lineworkers Rodeo will be held August 25-26, 2017 at AMP Headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. AMP Member community lineworkers will compete in three levels of competition: team, individual journeyman and apprentice.

The AMP Lineworkers Rodeo features events designed to replicate actual lineworker tasks and test skills that are needed on a daily basis. Judging is based upon safety, work practices, neatness, ability, equipment handling and timely event completion.
