Local 409 Shows their Skills: Both in Carpentry and Bull Riding!

Whittier, CA – Last Saturday Carpenters from Local 409 competed in their Skills Event for the chance to move forward to the Tournament of Champions next spring.

There were 195 members, 79 significant others, and 52 children, totaling 326 present at the event. Everyone got to enjoy Scooter’s BBQ, pony rides, and face painting. But, that’s not all! The mechanical bull was certainly the most popular with those in attendance. It was reported that while your brothers competed, their children, spouses, and significant others repeatedly took turns attempting the, simulated, ‘most dangerous eight seconds in sports.’ It’s hard to say which, the skills challenges or the bull riding, attracted more spectators throughout the day.

Help us congratulate Brother Francis Enriquez who took home gold in the Concrete Drag Race. He’ll be joining the other Skills Event champions at the Tournament of Champions early next year. All the results are below.

Congratulations to all the winners, and bull riders!
