Join us at the Oklahoma Rural Water Association’s Equipment Expo event for an exciting event! This competition will provide attendees with a chance to compete against the clock and each other using various pieces of equipment. Times will be recorded on a timecard we provide, and prizes will be awarded for the best times in 3 categories, including a grand prize for the top time overall. Winners must be present on Thursday at 4:45 PM to win.

In addition to the Backhoe Rodeo, attendees can also receive up to 8 hours of training hours during this event. Training time will be logged by scanning the QR code on your attendee badge as you exit classroom training, and via paper form when leaving the training demo.

Finally, attendees can take advantage of the event’s flexibility by briefly stepping away from the training sessions to spend additional time with the equipment at their discretion. This will allow attendees to practice their skills and prepare for the Backhoe Rodeo, or simply explore the equipment at their own pace.
