Rodeo Competitor Eligibility

Who can compete in the rodeo?
Utility line locators from any part of Nevada may compete in the rodeo as long as eligibility requirements are met. Line locators who may live out-of-state but perform most of their locating activities in Nevada are also eligible.

What are the eligibility requirements?
There are two ways to be eligible to compete: damage free or wild card.

  1. Damage Free – Locator must be damage free for a 12-month period preceding the rodeo from Jan. 1 – Dec. 31. Damage free means no utility damages occurred due to the locator’s locating responsibilities. An unlimited number of locators from one company/municipality may compete under this eligibility requirement.
  2. Wild Card – If a utility damage occurred due to the locator’s locating responsibility between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 of the year preceding the Rodeo, he may still compete if the locator’s  company/municipality recommends him under the “wild card” eligibility requirement. A company/municipality may send 1 locator as a wild card.
