Background/Analysis
The Annual Equipment Roadeo is hosted by the Alberta Public Works Association (APWA) and is an opportunity for heavy equipment operators to demonstrate their skills in friendly competition. Individuals compete by operating heavy equipment through a defined course and completing skill testing maneuvers.  Each competitor is judged and timed as they make their way through the obstacles and complete the course. This year marked the 20th annual Roadeo which was held in Red Deer on September 7th and 8th.

The APWA says that, “The Annual Equipment Roadeo is a great opportunity for your operators to practice and refine their skills in a fun and competitive environment.”

This year two operators from our Public Works department attended the competition and each achieved a top three finish!
  • Clint Finkbeiner, Operator, Roads and Drainage, finished 3rd in the skid steer competition, and
  • Rick Fillion, Operator, Roads and Drainage, finished 1st in the wheel loader event.
