CATT to celebrate anniversary with public party

Special to the Sun

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.
