MSA/APWA 2019 Equipment "Roadeo" Event Results

July 17, 2019

 

Pictured is the team from the City of El Cajon - overall winners of the 2019 Equipment Roadeo!

 

The Annual Training, Vendor Demo, Equipment Show & Competition for MSA and APWA was held on July 11, 2019 at Rohr Park in the City of Chula Vista who hosted the event. There were 22 vendors who set up booths and rolling stock to showcase their services. Our Vendor Members had much to show the close to 250 agency members attending from cities throughout San Diego County (along with 40-50 additional spectators and 8 special guests).  EBoard President Randy Carnahan was also in attendance and provided great support to the group.
 
There were 10 four-person teams competing for the MSA trophy and 20 operators competed for master operator. The competitions consisted of six events:  Backhoe Skills, Skid Steer Skills, Mini-Excavator Skills, Sign Assembly, Forklift, and Wheelbarrow Skills with the team having the best overall combined time win the MSA perpetual trophy as the coveted prize and bragging rights.
 
APWA sponsored the top two equipment operators to compete at the 2019 APWA PWX National APWA ROADEO in Seattle, WA.

 

Team El Cajon won overall this year beating out all the others for this year’s trophy.  El Cajon's team members were:  Zach Robbins, David Bosley, Esteban Garcia, and Steven Raineri. 

 

The Chapter is very appreciative of the participating Vendor members and their continued generosity and dedication to the Chapter.  The main objective of the event is to provide valuable training and showcase the MSA vendors who provide us the materials, supplies, and equipment needed for Public Works.  We thank them all for their continued support.

Summary of Competitions

 

Backhoe: 

 

The first task is to pick up the basketball placed on the cone. The cone may be touched with any part of the bucket, but if the ball is knocked off it will only be placed back on the cone by the judge one time.  The second task is to maneuver the bucket starting at the furthest opening of the PVC lined maze while the basketball remains in the bucket. Continue through the obstacle without letting the teeth of the bucket to rise above the PVC piping. Task three will be to drop the basketball in the trash can without touching the trash can. Once the basketball is dropped in the trash can there will be a finish line marked on the floor that must be crossed from left to right in order for the judge to stop the time.

 

Mini-Excavator:

 

The object is to reach the bucket and boom over the top of the barricade and knock off each of the tennis balls without hitting the barricade or cones. The cones with the tennis balls will be placed slightly in front of the barricade.  Once all the tennis balls have been knocked off the operator will then need to place their bucket on to the rubberized cone base in order for the judge to stop the timer.

 

Skid Steer:

 

The first task is to navigate the machine through the cones to the right where a barricade will

be stationed. Behind the barricade is a tennis ball on a cone.  The operator must raise the bucket over the top of the barricade and knock off the tennis ball without touching the barricade or cone.

 

The second task is to navigate the machine in reverse through the opening directly behind the barricade obstacle.  Then proceed forward turning into the three evenly spaced apart barrels obstacle. This will be a slalom maneuver where the machine must be on the right side of the first barrel as it enters this portion of the course.

 

Task three is to navigate the machine through the opening on the left side of the course then proceed to reverse the machine into the coned off dock. The back of the machine will need cross a line that will be painted on the ground before the next task can be started or points will be added.

 

Task four will be to pick up a basketball placed on a cone with the bucket and drop the basketball in to a trash can. The cone may be hit in order to get the basketball in the bucket.

 

Once the basketball is dropped into the trash can or hits the ground the time will stop.

 

Sign Assembly:  Competitors raced against the clock to install and disassemble four signs on a pole according to a drawing.

 

Wheelbarrow: The event required the competitor to navigate their wheelbarrow through an obstacle course. They started the race with three 30-pound sandbags and ran through the obstacle course, stopping to pick up two more sandbags part way through the course, and then drop three sandbags at a location. Then, they continued through the obstacle course to the finish line.
