BTC’s 14th annual Welding Rodeo is themed Fire and Ice this year, and competitors in our sculpture challenge will have two days to create a piece that incorporates both elements. The competition challenges teams of welders to create beautiful sculptures out of piles of metal scraps, with the finished creations auctioned off to raise money for student scholarships. The event also includes a skills challenge, where students, amateurs and professionals can test their skills with metal. In addition to the rodeo, the weekend will also include a Washington State Chef’s Association culinary competition, which will run Saturday and Sunday in BTC’s kitchens.
