HEET Annual Trailer Rodeo

This isn't a rodeo with bucking horses or bucking bulls, or even bucking sheep. It is a fun 1/2 day improving your skills as a horse trailer driver.

What to bring? Yourself, your partner, if you have one, your rig (truck and trailer). What not to bring? Horses, dogs, cattle, llamas, or other livestock. This is strictly an equipment event.

What is the plan? There will be a short presentation on what to look for in terms of safety; how to quickly check over your truck and trailer; perhaps a bit of information on licensing standards for larger rigs. Lastly a discussion of any new laws.

After the presentation, everyone will have the opportunity to try the driving course challenges. There will be experienced people on hand to give you pointers on how to maneuver your vehicle, uphill, downhill, forwards and backwards. No judgment, no scores, no tickets, nothing but an opportunity to improve and learn.

This will all take place at what is now the Unocal Center, but which many of us know as the Elks' Rodeo Grounds in Santa Maria.

PLEASE RSVP, so we know how many donuts to buy! Also, it helps us plan better if we know how many to expect. You are not required to be a member to join us.

This is a FREE event, where you will get a chance to learn that would cost a bundle to buy. Please, plan to come, make yourself a safer, saner, better member of HEET! OK, maybe the saner part is wishful thinking, but still...come!
