McCann Industries is one of the Case dealers hosting an event as part of the Case Triple Threat Rodeo Competition for 2011. Their rodeo will be held at the Bolingbrook branch on September 16. It’s one of several throughout the U.S. this year where heavy equipment operators are vying for a chance to win a new Case compact track loader and a Ram truck during the North American Triple Threat Rodeo Championship Event at the 2012 World of Concrete tradeshow. The winner of each local rodeo is awarded a trip for two to the championship in Las Vegas, January 2012, plus $500 and a commemorative Triple Threat Rodeo belt buckle.
“We have some pretty serious contenders who will be attending,” says Jim McCann, vice president of sales and marketing at McCann Industries. “Many of our customers have been operating skid steers for over twenty years. It will be exciting to see how they do on the obstacle course.”
The second place winner will receive $250 and third place, $100, plus a commemorative Triple Threat Rodeo belt buckle, and a chance to become one of five wildcard entries in the championship event. For participating, each contestant will receive a Case Triple Threat Rodeo hat and t-shirt. Entrants may compete individually or in teams of two at only one Triple Threat Rodeo.
Case dealers are partnering with local Habitat for Humanity affiliates at the Triple Threat Rodeo Competitions. Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness and has more than 2,300 active affiliates around the world. The rodeo events will also promote the Case Community Challenge, a program that honors contractors who participate in local community improvement projects by donating their time and expertise.
