Crane Operator Rodeo Supplement

2012 Crane Operator Rodeo LogoAs you may remember, October 13, 2012, Crane Institute of America hosted the Southeast Regional Crane Operator Rodeo. At our event the winners James Anderson (first place) and Mark Adcock (second place) won an expense paid trip to compete in the National Crane Operator Championship.


The Crane Operator Rodeos was sponsored by MCM Events, who may be best known by their magazine Crane & Rigging Hotline; Event Partner Crane┬áInstitute Certification (CIC); Crane Sponsor Liebherr; Rigging Sponsor the Crosby Group; and Award Sponsor Manitowoc. Crane & Rigging Hotline’s January 2013 issue includes a Rodeo Supplement which recaps the exciting regional qualifier events that took place from August to October, and the National Crane Operator Championship where Mark Adcock was dubbed first runner-up!
