TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe (CATT) invites the public to attend a fun-filled, family friendly celebration on Friday, Aug. 16, commemorating CATT’s 15th anniversary.
The anniversary party will run from noon to 7 p.m. at the Truckee River Regional Park.
The kickoff activity is a free lunch for the public, noon-1 p.m.
A trade show and carpentry skills contest will provide plenty to see and do during the afternoon. Both events are free to the public and run from noon to 4 p.m.
The trade show will feature a variety of suppliers showing off their latest and greatest products. The carpentry skills contest pits CATT company against CATT company in a timed event with two categories: rough carpentry and finish carpentry. The rough carpentry contest requires each two-man team to build a sawhorse while the finish carpentry contest requires each two-man team to build a birdhouse.
All teams will be judged on design, speed, and quality. First, second and third-place winners will be announced at 5 p.m. If there is a tie, a “build-off” will be held.
Dinner will be served from 5 to 7 p.m. The dinner menu consists of barbecued ribs or chicken with beans and salad. Anniversary cake will complete the meal. Cost is $12 per person in advance or $15 at the party. A live band, Angele and The Wildwood Band, will entertain the crowd during the dinner service.
CATT Party Chairman Mark Tanner said, “The construction industry is an integral part of our region. The Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe was created in 1998 with a community mindset that endures today. Come help us celebrate 15 years of building our communities.”
CATT is a regional, nonprofit trade association composed of 307 member companies, representing a broad cross section of the building industry and related professions.
