How the Pull Works

The combine has a pull rope attached to the front of it for your team to pull on.  The back of the combine has a tractor attached by a chain.  You do not pull the tractor.  It is there to stop the combine and pull it back to the start line for each team.

 

Your Goal
For your team to pull the combine 30 feet in the shortest possible time!

 

Your Team
Each team will consist of a maximum of 10 adults (at least 2 of which will be women)
Only 10 teams will be accepted and the deadline for registration is August 11th, 2017

 

Cost to Enter
The cost is $10.00 per person or $100.00 a team

 

Prizes
Prizes will be awarded for

  1. the fastest team and
  2. the most spirited team (costumes, a team chant or a theme)

 

Calcutta
To peak public interest, and have even more fun, teams will be auctioned off.  The money raised in the auction will be split 50/50 between the buyer of the winning team and the United Way.  So, if you don’t feel up to being a “puller” you can still support your team by becoming involved in the auction and being a “buyer”.  (LGA-7016-CA)

 

Location
Behind the main stage in the parking lot between the Shoppers Drug Mart and the Services of Seniors Center – You can’t miss the combine

 

Time
Your team is asked to be at the sight by 1:30pm for check in.  The auction will begin at 2:00pm followed by the main event – combine pull competition which should conclude at 4:00pm.
