Every night after the GMC Rangeland Derby, Mike Sharp, park projects manager, and his Operations team take on the big task of moving the TransAlta Mobile Stage to the centre of the Rodeo Arena for The Grandstand Show.
There are many moving parts to this process; several set pieces have to be brought out and pulled towards the stage, including an incredible flying mechanical bird as well as numerous screens, parts must be connected, and all power and fireworks must be in place.
This tight turnaround is action packed and filled with high energy. Every employee involved must be on their top game, mentally and physically, to make sure the stage is installed correctly, up to all safety standards, and ready for the performance to begin on time.
Awesome job to everyone involved in this process each night; because of you, thousands of fans are able to enjoy the performance only moments after the chuckwagon races finish.
