  • Event Names - Please Help

    We are having the trophies built for the contests we are running during the roundup. I am struggling with the names. Please help me out. Sorry about omitting #8 gotta keep it secret till the Roundup.

    1)Toilet Seat Horse Shoes
    -Each contestant will be given 6 throws. Throws will be scored by typical horse shoe rules

    2)Manual Pipe Prep
    -Contest will be given a 2-3 foot length of 1” pipe with damaged ends (maybe angle cut) The contestant will have to cut of the damaged or angled ends on each side and thread both sides of the pipe using a pipe cutter, vise, and manual threader. Clock will stop when contestant screws fittings on to both ends.

    3)K1500 Board Blast
    -This could be a timed contest similar to the competitions we have had at trade shows between salesmen. Fastest time to cut through the board wins.

    4)Locator Race
    -Contestant will have to trace 2 lines to the end and mark the end of the line. We will use the fire hydrant and a buried line in the field.

    5)Lag Drive
    -Contestant would have to drive 10 lag bolts into a 6X6 using either an impact driver or one of our cordless drills.

    6)1/2” Copper Maze
    -We would have a prefabricated wooden stencil/maze that we would have the contestants fabricate a simple run of copper and dry fit it into the maze with press fittings. Each contestant will be given 5’ of ½ inch copper and 4 press fittings. The time will stop when the completed run through the stencil is pressed together.

    7)Long Camera Job.
    -We will use the branching lines in the yard to test the contestants camera skills. They will run a line down each of the three splits in each line. At the end of each line will be a message that they have to read off in order to go to the next branch. Time will stop when the camera is extracted from the pipe after the last branch is verified.

    8)Top Secret


    9)Drain Blockage Bust
    -This contest will be performed in the submerged line in the yard. We will construct a section of pvc that has blown foam in it. The contestant will have to break through this blockage. They will have the option of using a k-60 or k7500. Time will stop after the blockage is cleared.


    Please recommend changes to the names.

        You're absolutely correct I had forgotten all about the limitations of the K-7500.

          Here are my quick ideas-gotta think about it though.

          #1-Lord of the Rings

          #2-Pipe Pro

          #3-Fastest Blaster

          In Mark's honor, #4 should be" location. location. location."

          #5-The others lagged behind

          #6-a-maze-ing Propresser

          #7-Smile! You're on Camera

          #9- Sectional VS. Drum

          I think these names give a reminder to the winner of the event, but gve the winner opportunity to tell others all about their trophy's meaning.

                    Re: Event Names - Please Help

                    It's official and I'm saying it now:


                    I'm not coming up to compete
                    Just to meet and greet.......



                    The past few weeks I've noticed that my left rotator cuff is getting uncomfortably loose, scary loose and I don't know if exercise or reducing work load is either the answer nor the option at this point.

                    I will however show everyone that task of me one-handing a drain clog as unfortunately I'm in the boat where I have no choice but to favor using the good shoulder, right one.

                    If I re-tear this cuff with all I got going on......it will demolish my second business short of hiring useless laborers to accomplish the feat.

                    Y'know........the kind that show up on a big bus that offer daily pay if you just show up? Dem kind of workers.

                    Besides.........no one liked my idea of a tuff, competitive clogged drain scenario a couple months back,

                    Rick complained, Josh relieved that temporary issue of "time" by allocating more.

                    Nobody but papadan commented on that scenario....and the double 90's as a swing joint with both heading vertical was for the asking about.

                    Sooooooooooo.......

                    I just won the roundup for offering the best hard drain clog, one handed mind you since my health is like george burns right now, deteriorating beyond earthen matter.

                    So I'm coming up for my check and at least 4 ridgid calendar girls for private team sessions in the hotel room. MSDS sheets will not be necessary.

                      Dunbar, it will be a pleasure to meet you.

                      How did you get the owie? Lifting the drum machine?

                      What happened to the East Coast? You guys are dropping like flies with the "rotator cuff" problem. First HVAC Hawk, then Gear Junkie, and now you?

                        Since you had promised to compete with one arm tied behind your back is there really an issue?
