The Memorial Day weekend is behind us, and next stop on the calendar holiday hit parade is the Fourth of July – but between now and your DPCs of Texas have plenty to keep everyone busy!
First and foremost, the International Utility Locate Rodeo is riding into town June 22-24. The actual competition takes place on Saturday, June 24 and will be followed that evening by a banquet and awards ceremony. It’s going to be a big affair – as of a few days ago the competition count was 28 competitors in Gas, 9 in Power, 6 in Water and 9 in Telecom.
The official hotel is the Embassy Suites DFW North, 2401 Bass Pro Drive, Grapevine, Texas 76501. Trade show exhibits will be open at the hotel Thursday, June 22 and Friday, June 23. You can get all the information at http://www.locaterodeo.net/ and we’re looking forward to seeing you there!
Also coming up in June are two more Mock Line Strike/PipelineResponse events in Texas. We’ll be in Kerrville for the Hill Country Safety Day, Mock Line Strike, and PipelineResponse on June 15th, and in McAllen for the Rio Grande Valley Safety Day, Mock Line Strike, and PipelineResponse on June 29th. More information on both of these events can be found here: http://dpcoftexas.com/special-events/hill-country-safety-day and here: http://diggingtexas811.com/pipeline/meeting/70
Get out your calendars and pens! Ready, set, go!
Until next week, safe digging!
