  • Event roundup-next year suggestions

    While it's still fresh in everyone's mind;

    -have a bare stud wall and have the team rough in a sink and toilet.
    -install a water heater
    -have a drum and a sectional far away in a van and you start in the drivers seat and take the machine out and set it up to the clean out. Time stops when you're back in the van.
    -no template for the copper maze, measuring is an important skill
    -having fewer events that lasted a little longer would suit me just fine.
    -cut a sheet of plywood-2 parts-points for speed and points for straightness
    -frame a stud wall.

    I know that Ridgid is a huge company that like any other company is scared of liability but please understand we're plumbers who do this type of work. Sign the safety release form and let us go at it.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

    ben, i know you're looking for revenge

    but they're still mopping up cutting oil from the threading contest.

    with any luck, there will be no competitions as a commercial cruise ship will not allow for it

    especially in the carribean

    give it some time to sink in as your emotions are running wild

    don't you have access to some naval ships

      Not revenge but it's best to talk about these things while it's on everyone's mind. Hopefully 8 months from now when Josh asks for suggestions, the details of this one will be a little fuzzy. I don't want the Ridgid guys and gals to think this is a negative thread on them by any means. This year's roundup was fantastic. Just a way to improve for next year.

      A cruise ship idea does sound good. Might even be cheaper for them.

        And Josh wondered why woodworkers were not signing up!

          If he added the framing and stuff you might get more of us, though rushing something with a RIDGID framing nailer seems like a recipe for disaster.

            Maybe a sanding competition for the woodworkers? Take a piece of hardwood and cut a curvy profile into it with the Band Saw, then sand the profile (Oscilating belt/spindle sander), then use the ROS to final sand it to 220 grit. I might have a chance to win that!!

            The straight-cut competition is a great idea. As long as I can bring along my straight edge!

            Framing competition would be very cool, too. Take a pile of 2x4's and given a length and height, make a wall. Top plate, bottom plate and studs. Points for getting the crown in the right direction!

            Will there be a video competition again next year, Josh? If so, I'll get busy on it now!
            I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

              We had some power tools folks at the Roundup and we had a great time with them. I think they had a good time as well. At least they kept coming back each day

                    i think if more wood workers singed up they would have had some other things to do but there were many more pipe fitters and plumbers singed up .so come next time and we will play with wood


                    the plumbers did make some wood chips cutting wood

                        clamp a peice of osb or plywood down have some rip lines chalked on them for 5 or 6 full lengh rips and see who can cut them the straitest and the fastest.

                        a door hanging comp, a window installing comp, for the sparkeys a pannel (3-6 circuts) wireing comp, 3 way switch comp,

                        oh and since we are all going to be there a burger eating contest.
                        9/11/01, never forget.

                          I sense tension in this thread




                          What really happened up there to bring this discussion on.....?


                          And I haven't seen one picture of ToUtahnow unless he was the cameraman.


                          What gives?

                            No tension at all and I hope no one thinks there was any up there. Besides, you can talk trash when you show up to events.

                              dunbar, sorry you missed it as josh had 4 sets of teams and believe it or not, you and all clear were inked in on team geritol with bill/plumberscrack, mike/ topdog, and myself.

                              talk about years, they had an oxygen tent set up with prunes for a snack.

                              too bad you missed it. we could have swept all 9 events.
