2017 REGIONAL ROAD-E-O

The weather was superb … temperature in the 80s with a slight breeze, were enjoyed by everyone except for the guy wearing the super-wide foam 10-gallon hat!!!

Eleven agencies/companies were represented at the June 9, 2017 Regional Road-E-O in Ridgely, Maryland; three were from the Mid-Atlantic Chapter (Delaware Solid Waste Authority, Maryland Environmental Service, and Republic Services-Delaware), plus one each from the New Jersey and Virginia Chapters, with the remainder from the Pennsylvania Keystone Chapter. In total, there were 37 contestants who participated in 59 events.

There were three different courses set up for six different competitions. The dozer and landfill compactor used the same course; the articulated dump truck and rubber tire loader, the second course; and the roll-off truck and front-end loader, the third course. The number of contestants varied from seven to fifteen, with the dozer competition being the most popular.

Congratulations to all those who participated and placed!

Tthis Road-E-O event could not have happened without a lot of support and assistance by many! Many thanks to the following who donated equipment and trucks which were used during the competitions:

• Mid-Atlantic Waste Systems
• Maryland Environmental Service

There were at least twenty-six volunteers on Friday: registering contestants, judging on the three courses, taking photographs, “being runners,..” score keepers, etc. On Thursday, the three courses had been laid out.

Most importantly, this would not have been possible without MES agreeing to host the Road-E-O for the fourth time in the past six years (2012-2014, and 2017). This entailed innumerable hours of planning and coordination by MES. Special thanks to MES employees Tim Ford, Marcia King, Jeff Fried (and his wife Chris), and Monty Monteith.

SPECIAL THANK YOU TO MES FOR HOSTING ANOTHER GREAT ROAD-E-O!!
