The NOWRA National Backhoe Roe-D-Hoe championships were held recently in Indianapolis at the 2023 WWETT Show, as 175 entrants tested their backhoe skills through an obstacle course of basketballs, bowling pins and golf balls.

Five finalists and the Iowa state champion competed for the top three prizes in the finals. Jordan Boley of Robins, Iowa, took first place in the competition and also was the Iowa state champion. He got to wear the Backhoe Roe-D-Hoe championship belt and walk away with $1,000 in cash and a commemorative belt buckle.

Other top finishers included Albert Breech of Lucasville, Ohio, in second place; and Lawrence Triolo of Sandy, Utah, in third place. Winning honorable mention were Dan Shriver of Marianna, Pennsylvania; Adrin Keiper of Wadsworth, Ohio; and Mark Shepard, Stilwell, Kansas.
