“We would like to invite all Companies in the distribution of Natural Gas to join us in September for this exciting, challenging competition,” says Michael Chitwood of Ed Young Sales, Co and Rodeo Committee Chair. “As most competitors will tell you, not only are you tested through competition, they enhance their individual abilities, through learning to excel through team competition. An important part of the event is the camaraderie of their peers, many long time competitors liken this event to a family reunion. We would like to encourage you to come and be part of our family.”
The event is expected to draw teams from utilities across the nation that see real value in letting their crews put themselves to the test. These companies believe that participating in the National Gas Rodeo can play an important role in developing a mindset and skill-set of excellence and professionalism.
The National Gas Rodeo thanks all their sponsors for supporting this event including, Case Construction Equipment the platinum sponsor and exclusive equipment provider. Without our many sponsors this event would not be possible.
