The CCNZ Nelson Marlborough Regional Excavator Operator Competition is back for the first time since 2013, and better than ever.
The 2020 event will be held in Richmond in conjunction with the Nelson A & P Show. As well as the region's top excavators battling it out for the regional title, the winner will go on to represent the region at the National Excavator Operator Competition in March 2021
Prospective competitors and sponsors can register their interest with CCNZ Nelson Marlborough Branch Secretary Megan Gibbins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a fun spectator event. Even if you're not competing, come along and watch excavator operators take on spectacular challenges or take the kids along for a go on the mini digger - run by the team from the Doug the Digger roadshow.
EPIC Careers Hub
This year's event will also feature an EPIC Careers Hub for people interested in civil construction and infrastructure work. Career seekers will be able to try their hand at virtual reality excavator and earthmoving, or give the excavator simulator a go with event sponsors Connexis.
