R News to Broadcast National Competition at Applied Technologies Center


R News, Time Warner's Channel 9, carried a live feed from the national tooling and machining competition held on Thursday and Friday at MCC's Applied Technologies Center. The station broadcast live at 7 a.m. today, talking with Bob Lasch, program coordinator, and photographing Pat Bolton, demonstrating a project on the lathe, one of three machines the apprentices will use in the competition.

Sponsored by the National Tooling and Machining Association and its local chapter, Rochester Tooling and Machining Association (RTMA), the competition tests the knowledge and skills of senior-year apprentices while promoting training programs and career opportunities in the metal-working industry. Winners will be announced during a banquet on Saturday.
