The performance of Starcon team members at the 2011 Craft Championships in San Antonio was nothing short of excellent. They delivered the Reliable Performance of Starcon that the company so proudly touts. They represented Starcon and the Cianbro Companies with professionalism and high quality craftsmanship, and maintained the highest levels of safety throughout the competition.

In Pipefitting, Terry Bagshaw competed with a level of experience that exceeded the field. His rolling offset piece was within 3/8 inch of specification over a 4.5 foot span (run). It would have bolted right up! Unfortunately, the event was not included in the scoring because of problems with the jig which was used to test fit. In screw pipe, Terry created an excellent piece which dropped right into place ahead of the clock time. In bolt up, he completed all but one bolt and built to spec all valves facing the proper direction. There was a bonus for completion which weighed more than valve placement. Terry’s performance was superb.

In Pipe-welding, Zach McClure finished his first weld in two hours. This was very impressive since all the competitors had to deal with bad rod. Zach was our youngest competitor and his welding project was high quality. On any given day, any of the competitors could have placed. Starcon Training and Development Manager Tom Wanamaker was impressed with Zach’s steady and confident approach in that venue.

In Insulation, Cody McComb offered a degree of skill and quality craftsmanship which impressed Tom and the spectators.  Cody's 90 degree elbow in metal work was top-notch.  "I am very proud of Cody's performance," Tom said, "and he wooed the spectators."  

A major take away for training is to get more involvement in the whole ABC competition process. "We need to dedicate more resources into such areas as judging and scoring criteria," Tom said, "and channeling our donations to the competition into quality rod for welding. More representation from Starcon would greatly enhance our ability to place at the events. There were also events for recruiting MDPs, Business Development, Safety, and Leadership Development. I would like to incorporate these into our overall training plan. 

"Our competitors performed with precision, safety, and quality craftsmanship," Tom concludes. "I am very proud of each of them. I would like to award them with internal Starcon awards the first week of May in Canton."
