The Pelican Chapter’s annual craft competition was held on December 11, 2014. This competition was held to determine who will represent our Chapter Training Center and compete at the ABC National Workforce Development Conference. Each year competitors in welding (pipe and plate), millwright, pipefitting, electrical, and instrumentation line up to see who will be the best. All of those that placed received pre-paid VISA gift certificates. The first place winner received a $300.00 certificate while second place received $200.00 and third place received $100.00. All first place winners will have a fully paid trip to compete at the conference which will be held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on March 3-6, 2015. We would like to offer a special thanks to our contractors for supplying volunteers as judges and providing the food for breakfast and lunch. The success of this event can be directly attributed to their efforts. We would like to thank all of our competitors for their effort.
