Oct. 5, 2011 - PRLog -- On Saturday, September 10, 2011 the Atlanta branch of Briggs Equipment held its 1st Annual Forklift Rodeo.  All of the proceeds from the rodeo will be donated to the Georgia and Alabama chapters of the Make-A-Wish foundation.

The rodeo consisted of five challenge events.  The operator courses for each challenge event was designed to test each contestant’s driving skills and knowledge the forklift and its safe operation.  The course required precision maneuvering around typical warehouse obstacles, load transport, load placement and efficiency.

The event generated contributions to the Make-A-Wish Foundation in excess of $12,000 thanks to the participants and the generous matching gifts of Briggs Equipment Corporate office and parent company Sammons, Inc.

Mr. Kirby said he was delighted to be a part of such a worthy cause.  The Make-A-Wish Foundation does great work.  We have been a vendor partner of Briggs Equipment since 2004 handling the transport of their lift trucks and construction equipment.  The safe transport of forklifts requires extensive knowledge of the lift truck’s operation, weight distribution and what it takes to make sure the lift trucks are loaded securely on our trucks.  In addition to safe transport, on occasion, when a trained operator is not available, we are required to provide end users with enough onsite instruction to move the units from the delivery dock to a safe storage.  

Kirby also stated that he would have been happy with a top 25 finish.  A third place finish out of more than fifty experienced contestants whose job require daily operation of lift trucks was for him, exceptional.  I am looking forward to next year.  We have also committed to being one of the participating sponsors for next year’s event.
