The HDD Rodeo competition is an exciting showcase of skill, accuracy and speed, pitting drilling crew against drilling crew. Crews will take their best shot at completing a 230-ft bore and are judged on line & grade and the time it took to complete the shot. No pullback will take place. The top winners will receive a plethora of monetary and HDD-related prizes, donated from HDD companies around the industry.

Review the rules for the drilling competition.

Each crew will be responsible for transportation of their rig, to and from the competition site. Drilling fluid will be available onsite or crews can bring their own drilling fluid.

Registration Fees for drill crews before September 1, 2024, $3,500.
Registration Fees will increase after September 1, 2024, to $4,000.
