More Crane Rodeo Video

As promised, here is some of the video I shot of the Crane Rodeo Regional Qualifier in Houston, Texas on September 12.  The event was one of several held across the country to allow crane operators to qualify for the National Championship in October.  There they competed for prizes and bragging rights, showcased their skills, and helped raise awareness for the upcoming OSHA regulations which will require all operators to obtain minimum certifications.

Operators who competed in the rodeos were judged on a system which penalized for errors such as hitting the ground with the hook, swinging the pipe out of the designated travel zone, or knocking over a barrel; and also for the time it took the operator to complete the task.

This 9½-minute video is a little raw, but I hope you enjoy watching these talented operators in action!
