Gregory Carreras wins the 4th Annual NRCGA Utility Locate Rodeo!

The NRCGA Utility Locate Rodeo is an annual competition that showcases the utility line locating profession. The knowledge and skill utilized by line locators are important factors in underground damage prevention and in keeping our community safe.

All locators working in Nevada are encouraged to participate for a chance to win cash, TVs, gift cards and other fabulous gifts provided by the Rodeo’s generous sponsors! It’s also a great opportunity for locators to meet colleagues from other locating companies, as well as NRCGA members.
