Being a Judge

Our goal at the International Lineman’s Rodeo is to be fair and consistent in judging all events. If you are or ever were a qualified practicing, working lineman you are eligible to be a judge. When you volunteer to be a Judge it is important to attend the Judges meetings held at the Sheraton Overland Park Hotel, located at 6100 College Boulevard, Overland Park KS. on Friday before the rodeo. In these meetings each event is reviewed and final instructions are given so that our judging can be fair and consistent. The journeyman teams and apprentices participating in the rodeo, have spent many hours preparing to compete and deserve dedicated judges interested in fair and consistent judging.

Please review the list of items below to see what is expected and needed to participate as a judge.

  1. Have had experience in the electrical Linemen trade.
  2. Attend the Judges meeting on Friday
  3. Wear Hard Hats
  4. Wear Long Pants
  5. Wear Hard Sole Shoes
  6. Have a clipboard
  7. Have a stopwatch (capable of times down to hundredths of seconds)
  8. Foul Weather Gear is not required, however it is a good idea to be prepared as the rodeo goes on rain or shine.

Judges will receiveĀ an official ILRA Hard Hat and Safety Vest to be worn during judging and ticket for lunch. The Judges will also receive a banquet ticket for the awards banquet Saturday evening.

We need and welcome Judges and Assistants from all participating companies and locals.
