District 1, 2 and 3 equipment roadeo winners announced
The best of the best were at it again in western and north Idaho at last week’s district equipment roadeos, as crews measured both performance and knowledge. The annual test of skill and ability took place at the Athol Gravel Pit May 19 (D1), Dworshak Reservoir May 21 (D2), and Garden Valley May 27 (D3).
District 4 finished their competition May 13, while District 5 and District 6 held their events this week. The statewide competition will be held June 9 at the D5 main yard in Pocatello.
Two rounds of scoring through the truck-driving and loader-operator courses were recorded, in addition to a written exam. Participants had 10 minutes to find five “planted” defects in the truck inspection portion of the competition and 10 minutes to answer 10 multiple-choice questions.
