The Snow Fighters Rodeo is in Sioux Falls Wednesday and Thursday.
84 members of the State Department of Transportation from the Mitchell region, gathered together for a friendly competition involving obstacles, while operating snow plows.
Operators are rewarded for keeping clear of cones and deducted for hitting cones.
The Region Engineer, Craig Smith, said this is a way to mix business with a little bit of fun.
"It's a time to get our snow plow operators together, hone in on their skills for operating the snow plows as well as take some opportunity for some safety training and just discuss some of the things we need to be ready for come winter," said Smith.
The top five snow plow operators will move on to a state competition in Pierre.
