City of Camden and Kershaw County public works employees got the opportunity to show off their backhoe skills, testing the steadiness of their nerves at the annual Backhoe Rodeo at City Hall Park on May 9. Camden’s James “Red” Ray organized and oversaw the event which included 18 contestants competing in three events. The top three finishers advance to a regional competition Friday in Columbia.
