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!
