The Road to North Carolina

From our four initial challenges, we took the top three overall times to determine our champions to be sent to compete at the North American Regional Operator Challenge in North, Carolina, in October 2019. Those finalists were Jaus Neigum, Cody Wilson and Larry Mason.



Together, they journeyed to North Carolina to compete for the title of Americas West Champion and a chance to compete on the world stage in Las Vegas at the Global Operator Challenge.
