TOMCAT USA held its first Hoist and Workshop of 2001 in February, a four-day event of rigging techniques and truss theory and design by day and dancing and karaoke singing by night.

The workshops were held at the Hilton Midland and Towers, and the Fall Protection Workshop was held at the Yucca Theater. TOMCAT also held its traditional factory night at TOMCAT USA with tours, demonstrations, contests, and a graduation ceremony.

The next TOMCAT Hoist and Rigging Workshop will be hosted by TOMCAT UK May 20-22, 2001.
