The North Kingstown Public Works Department successfully defended its Snowplow Rhodeo championship at the 2013 Outdoor Equipment Show, held recently at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Richmond, RI. Michael Mann (left) and Kyle Wicker (right) beat seven other teams. Last year, Mann won with B.B. King, who served as one of the judges this year.
For the first time in many years, the Backhoe Rhodeo was held at the Equipment Show. With 13 people competing, Don Fascio of the Coventry Department of Public Works claimed top honors. Andrew Costa of the Cumberland Water Department came in second place.
