Rodeo Banquet
The 2017 Public Power Lineworkers Rodeo Banquet will be held at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter. 

Banquet Tables: The Association offers Rodeo participants the opportunity to reserve a table at the Rodeo Awards Banquet on Saturday night. All reserved tables will be assigned and labeled with the utility’s name. There are 8 chairs at each table, and a table purchase does NOT include banquet tickets for admission. The Association strongly recommends that table orders be placed as early as possible as quantities are limited and we cannot guarantee availability. All banquet tables must be reserved before the April 7th deadline. 

Banquet Tickets: Rodeo attendees may choose to purchase additional banquet tickets for colleagues, family, and friends. A limited number of tickets are available for purchase; as such, the Association recommends purchasing tickets in advance. Banquet tickets include a meal, two drink tickets (Adult Tickets only), a seat for the Rodeo awards ceremony, and entertainment. Note that all competitors, judges, and greeters/auditors receive a banquet ticket as a part of their event registration. Banquet tickets purchased in advance will be available at the “Sales” area during the Rodeo Registration and Expo, on-site at the Rodeo grounds in the “General Information” tent on Saturday, May 6.
