As part of the Case Triple Threat Rodeo Competition for 2011, TrekkerÂ Tractor, the Case distributor, is hosting rodeos at four of its branches. The competitions are scheduled at Tampa on July 15, West Palm Beach on August 19, Miami on September 16, and Orlando on October 14. Heavy equipment operators are competing at Case dealerships throughout the U.S. this year to vie 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 will be awarded a trip for two to the championship in Las Vegas, January 2012, plus $500 cash and a commemorative Triple Threat Rodeo belt buckle.
â€śWe are looking forward to the rodeos,â€ť says Ronald Miller, vice president of Trekker Tractor. â€śThese events give local equipment operators a chance to show off the skills they hone every day on the job in competitions that will involve Case loader backhoes, wheel loaders and skid steers.â€ť
Second and third place winners at each rodeo will receive $250 and $100, respectively, a commemorative Triple Threat Rodeo belt buckle, and a chance to become one of five wildcard entries in the championship event. All participants receive a Case Triple Threat Rodeo hat and t-shirt. Entrants may compete individually or in teams of two and can only compete in one Triple Threat Rodeo at one dealership location.
Case dealers are partnering with local Habitat for Humanity affiliates at Triple Threat Rodeo Competitions across the U.S. 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.
