    Our September program will be on crane safety and rather than bring an instructor to us, we’re going to go to them!  Associated Training Services in Sun Prairie has invited us to hold our meeting at their location and given the additional space, we’ve invited our Associate Members who provide crane sales and rental services to join us with some of their equipment.  This will be a hands-on and interactive session for owners and anyone involved with project safety.  

    Our speaker is Dan Swiggum, Chief Crane Instructor at Associated Training Services (ATS).  Dan is an NCCCO certified crane operator and has been a NCCCO Practical Examiner since 2008. Dan is also a certified Craft Instructor thru the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER).  

    ATS is an Associate Member of WRCA and is the oldest family- owned training center for CDL drivers, heavy equipment operators, crane operators, and rigging and signalpersons.

    During dinner, attendees will be encouraged to discuss the program materials and to think about real-world applications.  Following dinner, we will have a Q & A period and roundtable discussions to help you better understand the real-world application of what you have learned.  Your registration includes the program, dinner, and a drink ticket.

    Non-Member guests are welcome.

    For our October meeting, we’re trying something different.  The WRCA is going bowling!  Sure, we’ve done golf outings, sporting clays, and pheasant hunts around this time of year, but consider the advantages of bowling by comparison:

    It’s really hard to lose a ball.
    You don’t have to load a bowling ball.
    Weather’s not a factor.
    If you have a hook, that’s a good thing.
    If you have a slice, it will probably be pepperoni.
    If you have a Chihuahua (or some other non-hunting breed) you can finally bring your dog to a WRCA event.
    You get to wear really cool shoes.
    And it’s fun!

     

     

    Space is limited, so register today! 
    Registration is just $40.00 per person and includes three games of bowling, shoes, pizza/appetizers, drink ticket, and door prizes.

    We hope you’ll join us for this event!
