Habitat for Humanity and the Case Equipment Rodeo

I went to my first 'heavy equipment rodeo' on this past rainy Saturday. Many operators compete in skills tests on front loaders, skid loaders and backhoes. Time and a delicate touch are the main skills to demonstrate. The event had a dual function as a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis and that is the reason that brought me there.

Habitat staff and volunteers, like me, shared info and opportunities with the crowd. William McHugh, the Habitat Construction Manager did a fine job as a competitor as well
