  • Roundup Highlight Video

    This really only has Thursday in the highlights but still a quick glimpse of the happenings at the RIDGID Roundup. Its the same clip we showed on Friday at the Roundup for those of you who came. We had to swap out the music so we could display it publicly. Old music was much better.

    Great job JOSH!!! Wish i could have been there!! It looked like rick almost got knocked out during the pipe threading contest. I'll bet there was a couple of close calls with that one!

              I think extra credit should be given for that. In the field the foreman would send you home for the casual removal of die heads I saw at the competition. It was pretty obvious at the competition who had spent some time threading and who had not. I'm sure next year will be much a better competition because people would have practiced techniques. I guarantee Rick will be under a minute next year.

                We already have ideas for competitions we can switch up. K1500 will stay regardless. Seems like everyone loved that one.

                  The one thing the videos will not show is all of the fun we had at the hotel and non "official" gatherings. I'm already shopping for air flight deals for next year.

                    I think the cut and thread competition should also involve some fitting assembly, (at least cap the ends) and then an airtest to see if it hold pressure....it looks like it just brute speed without any skill.

                    I'll make an effort to come next year. It sounds like a good time.

                        Pretty much all of the competition was about speed more than skill but you did have to be able to screw a fitting on at the end of the threading competition to show it was properly threaded.

                          I am not so interested anyway in fanning my ego in competition bragging (like someone we all know) as I am in meeting my new e-friends in person. I'm sure that alone would be worth the trip.

                            LOL-I wouldn't worry as he feeds off himself. Some have talked about having a contest with real plumbing skills but the problem is , time require and what code would it be judged under. The way it was, everyone had the opportunity to be introduced to tools they may have never used and a good time was had by all. I look forward to meeting you at next years event.
