I would like to pass along that James “Monk” Mullinax competed and finished third in the South Carolina State Backhoe Rodeo competition that took place July 8 in Myrtle Beach. This competition was held by the South Carolina Chapter of the American Public Works Association. The competition is held for backhoe operators from APWA member agencies and public entities. The competitions were held regionally around the state and Monk won the Lancaster, York and Chester Region competition. This qualified him to compete in the State Championship. There were seven regional winners and the reigning State Champion representing this year’s competition.
The competition allows operators to showcase their skills by using the “digging bucket” to pick up materials and place them in small or difficult locations all the while being timed. The combined times of each operator determine the winner.
We in the Public Works / Utilities Department are very proud of Monk on his accomplishment in this venture.
