APWA WI 2019 Snowplow Roadeo Competition Res ....

30th Annual Snowplow Roadeo Drew 112 Drivers, 34 Vendors

A beautiful sunny day greeted the  drivers as they competed for the bragging right to say they are the best snowplow driver in the State of Wisconsin and to compete for the top 2 spots for an all-expense paid trip to compete in the Western Snow Plow Roadeo in Loveland, Colorado. The event included 34 vendors and sponsors, who participated in an equipment show. A special thank you to JX Truck Center and Peterbilt for signing up as a major sponsor for this year's event.

This year’s obstacle driving course included six different obstacles: a sweeping curve with hazards; a round-about; an outside curve; slalom; dead end/back up and turn and start/stop line. The slalom and round-about elements contributed to an extremely challenging and stressful course.

The day’s activities also included a disabled vehicle inspection event sponsored by Monroe Truck Equipment that stressed the importance of a thorough pre-trip visual inspection of the plow truck before operation.

A big-thank you to the 25 members of the Fleet Services Committee who planned and coordinated the day’s events. 

The National APWA Winter Maintenance Supervisor Certificate training included 78 attendees and six speakers talking about the newest in equipment, planning and policy, use of chemicals, snow and ice control, and extreme weather events. A special thank you to Aaron Janhke, Public Works Director, City of Portage, for planning and coordinating the training.

Mechanic training was attended by 46 participants and 2 presenters. A special thank you to Force America for supplying the trainers and knowledge.

Thank you to the City of Appleton, Waukesha County and City of Kenosha for the use of trucks for the event.

Finally, thank you to the Green Bay Packers organization, Stadium View Bar and Grille, Tundra Lodge and all the vendors, sponsors, and judges who participated, graded, and exhibited equipment during the day’s event.
