Colorado Public Works Journal, Summer 2023

42┃ Colorado Public Works Journal The National Snow Roadeo is an exciting one-day event that tests the skills and knowledge of equipment operators from around the country. We’ll award the top three best combined scores from agencies who participate in all five (5) events. So you don’t have to get first place in an individual event to earn your plaque and bragging rights! Bring your family and friends to cheer you on and watch you in action as you compete. One of the biggest pleasures is watching so many talented equipment operators show off their skills in the Roadeo events. It’s not often that family and friends get a chance to watch, in a safe environment, what you do day in and day out in the winter. Please Note: There will be no roadeo event registrations the day of the Roadeo, September 27. Substitutions are allowed. Please make sure you have registered for all the events you wish to participate in by 9/26. The competition offers five events.
