NEPPA's 2017 Lineworkers Rodeo was cancelled due to the overwhelming, and much appreciated, mutual aid response to both Hurricane Irma and Maria in both Florida and the US Virgin Islands.  Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to restoring power in the public power community.


Let's make up for a missed year and join in the spirit of competition!
