I attended the IWCA Training Session in Cincinnati, OH on Fri 4/25/08.
The majority of the meeting was around rigging and tieing off and do’s and don’ts regarding that. It was pretty good. It was the first one I attended, but some other’s who have attended in the past told me it was very similar to what they have heard before.
Yes, I did see the competition. Right after lunch, right?? I didnt compete, but it was alot of fun to watch.
The guys on the wall were good, and the guys on the lift were a little droning. They are good guys who know thier stuff, but I just didnt get a whole lot out of it. Stephan talked on the ladders, as well, outside. He pretty much ran the whole thing, from what I could tell. If not “ran” he was at least the featured speaker.
