As the Official Marking Paint Sponsor of the 2014 International Utility Locate Rodeo, Krylon Industrial Marking Paint is giving locators a chance to win a trip and a chance to compete in this year’s rodeo on the campus of Emory University in Atlanta, GA. Since its inception in 2001, the International Utility Locate Rodeo has been the preeminent competitive event for Utility Locate Technicians. This annual event for locate professionals is co-sponsored by the National Utility Locating Contractors Association (NULCA) and Georgia 811 to encourage better locates, a safer work environment, and reduced damage to the utility infrastructure. “This competition provides an opportunity to recognize the great work of individuals and a profession that normally goes unnoticed unless a mistake is made. We are proud to have the continued support of Krylon Industrial, who also understands the importance that locate technicians play in the role of damage prevention,” said Meghan Wade, Locate Rodeo spokeswoman.
The International Utility Locate Rodeo is an opportunity for utility locators to come together and compete for the rights to be called the industry’s most accurate locators and win part of over $15,000 in prizes. The event also features a trade show where the top companies in the locating industry display their latest tools and technologies.
“We continue to support the International Utility Locate Rodeo because it truly recognizes not only the skill and dedication of all locators, but also the importance of the locating industry and the job that all locators do to keep all of us safe every day,” said Paulette Grimme, Brand Manager at Krylon Industrial.
Krylon Industrial will send four (4) locators to this year’s rodeo - one for each of the Rodeo's Competitive Divisions: Telecommunication, Gas, Water, Power - to pit their skills against the best in the country. Interested locators can enter at KrylonMakeYourMark.com. Winners will receive flight and hotel accommodations, the registration fee, and a chance to compete against the best locators in the country for a chance to win additional prizes.
Added Grimme, “We’re using this promotion to encourage locators to visit KrylonMakeYourMark.com to learn how using Krylon Industrial Marking Paint can save them REAL MONEY. Everyone knows that the true savings for any locator is the time spent on the locate, not the few cents it costs to dispose of a can. Because Krylon Industrial Marking Paint was developed specifically for locators, it delivers a solid 2" mark in ONE PASS which reduces the number of trips locators have to make to the truck to change out the cans… thus saving them REAL MONEY.”
The Krylon Industrial International Utility Locate Rodeo Sweepstakes is open to individuals who are legal residents of the United States, are eighteen (18) years or older at the time of entry and are practicing technicians employed by a utility company, one of their locate contractors, or owners or employees of private locating companies. The entry period runs through June 27, 2014.
