2021 Ironworkers Local 721 Apprentice Competition

We at Local 721 would like to thank all the competitors, spectators and UIWMC for attending.

It was a great apprentice competition event with a succulent pig roast,  amazing BBQ, and an impressive motorcycle show and shine from the Union Iron Workers Motorcycle Club. This year’s competition was fearsome with 12 competitors fighting for 4 positions to represent us at provincial level. It was a tough battle, and we would like to thank all the judges that volunteered their time to score our competitors in various events. Unfortunately, we could only pick four competitors to move on.
