Join us for the 3rd Annual Minnesota Lineworkers Rodeo!

Don't let the name fool you. You don't have to be from Minnesota to participate. The Rodeo is open to any lineworker!

The Rodeo offers lineworkers the opportunity to increase proficiency, gain confidence and experience some healthy competition. Again this year, events will be single-person so that any lineworker can participate! Everyone who participates will receive a commemorative tee-shirt and is invited to join us for our awards reception in the evening. Registration for this event is free to MMUA members.
