IBEW 1245 members at NV Energy competed in the recent National Gas Rodeo in Fairview Heights, IL.
The team was selected following a competition with other NV Energy workers in a series of timed events. They built a typical residential meter set, installed a gas service, connected it to a gas main and capped it; and performed a “speed dig” to the bottom of a 3-foot-deep pit.
The five servicemen with the fastest combined times on those events, and selected to compete in the national Rodeo, were: Marty Kumle, a 15-year IBEW 1245 member; Mike Kennedy, 15 years; Stelios Marakis, 10 years; David Diaz, 5 years; and Kurt Davis, 4 years
