Bonner Springs, KS (PRWEB) July 14, 2011
Coleman Equipment is hosting a Triple Threat Rodeo on Saturday, August 13th at 24000 West 43rd Street in Bonner Springs, Kansas (two miles south of I-70 on K-7) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Instead of roping calves or riding bulls, this rodeo involves operating a Case loader/backhoe, a wheel loader and a skid steer. It pits our area’s most talented heavy equipment operators against each other in a series of three skill-testing events; it’s the ultimate test of man, mind and machine. Drop by to watch the fun! There will also be demonstrations of Case equipment and activities for families, guests, and other spectators.
During July and August, Coleman Equipment is collecting donations for Heartland Habitat for Humanity and will be presenting those donations plus a donation from the dealership during the rodeo awards ceremony.
Local equipment operators participating in the rodeo event are eligible to earn up to $500 in cash prizes, plus the winner also earns a trip to for two to Las Vegas in 2012 to the Case North American Triple Threat Rodeo Series Finals, where they will compete for the grand prize of a new Case, Alpha Series TR 270 Compact Track Loader for their sponsoring company and a new Dodge RAM Truck for themselves. The Case TR270 is valued at $62,000. The Dodge RAM Truck is valued at $42,000. More than 4,500 operators are expected to compete in rodeos across North America, including close to 75 at this local event.
