Forklift And Backhoe Rodeo
A specialist rodeo has been organised to take place in Guam in the United States. As part of a fund-raising drive to obtain money for Special Olympics Guam, a non-profit event and organisation, which will take place in March.
The charity event is special in that it is a rodeo, which, instead of featuring horses and cowboy style fare, it will feature backhoe loaders
, forklift trucks as well as other kinds of construction and agricultural equipment
The Forklift and Backhoe Rodeo was to be held by The Guam Contractor’s Association at the Guam International Railway in local Yigo. Those participating in the forklift and backhoe related rodeo looked set to participate in tasks and games which relate to construction and agriculture, notably to do with forklift trucks and backhoe loaders
Tasks relating to the usage of forklift trucks and backhoe loaders in the Construction Rodeo include the testing of entrant’s backhoe precision skills, demonstrated by using a backhoe loader
to move a ball into a bucket, as well as electrical installation races. As it was a charitable event the Construction Rodeo implementing tasks by backhoe loaders and forklift trucks will donate all proceeds to the Special Olympics Guam, and will award prizes and raffles during the construction related event.
