Ideal cancels 2020 National Championship
By Anthony Capkun
May 8, 2020 – Ideal Industries has decided to cancel its National Championship for top gun electricians for 2020.
“The current [COVID-19] environment mandates that we absolutely put the safety of all of our competitors and partners first,” said Ideal’s Doug Sanford.
The plan is to resume in 2021. Registration will commence early next year, with the finals being held December 15-17, 2021, in Nashville, Tenn.
“There are extra demands on society this year,” said Steve Henn, CEO. “Electricians are doing essential work during this crisis, keeping power running in our hospitals, shelters, grocery stores and more. We cannot distract them from their important work […].”
Henn added that Ideal is taking the guidelines related to gatherings and physical distancing “very seriously, while remaining committed to connect and support the trades in 2020”.
