Bakersfield Area Carpenters Compete to Qualify for Tournament of Champions

Bakersfield – One hundred and twenty-six carpenters and their families, 224 people in total, attended the Local 743 Skills Event. While carpenters competed for the chance to move forward to the Tournament of Champions in Ontario, CA early next year, families enjoyed the ‘street fair.’

Despite, the smaller size of the Bakersfield Training Center, a ‘street fair’ was put together on the acres of land around the property. Scooters BBQ set up shop on ‘Main Steet’ near the stage. Children enjoyed games, a bounce house, and a photo booth. There was plenty to see and do no matter where members and families walked in the street fair setting. 

The scale of the event was so large that many of the games were set up outside. This year brothers Jorge Torres and Shawn St. Jean took home first place in the coveted Drywall and Concrete Drag Races respectively. The Scaffold Champion was Noel Aceves. The full list of results is below.

Congratulations Brothers!
