Game Day at the International Lineman's Rodeo

The 33rd Annual International Lineman’s Rodeo opened at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Oct.15, 2016 in Bonner Springs, Kansas. A steady stream of traffic flowed into the National Agricultural Hall of Fame fairground before dawn as teams gathered for last-minute preparations to compete. Hearty breakfasts were served in tents set up on the perimeter of the grounds so linemen could be fueled up for the physical endurance of the games.

Kansas City Power & Light and Westar Energy were the host utilities.
