Posted at 11:26 AM on Apr 4, 2013

The SCLC Backhoe Rodeo sponsored by Eddie Axner Construction was a great success again this year. There were approximately 50 participants competing in three different backhoe events. Each event is timed and penalties assessed for errors made. The lowest cumulative score wins the competition.
