- Who is allowed in the pit?
o Anyone with business there. Everyone is volunteering, if you’d like to help please feel free. There is a normal crew, but they pull as well. We always appreciate additional help and are happy to show you how/what you can do. No one is obligated to do so however, and if you are tired or need a break please do so by simply walking out of the pit.
- What is the difference about Fairs?
o Fairs have their own agenda and we are there as a draw. You usually get in at these events for free, but not always.
o There is usually a defined time frame to work within. This causes us to limit the number of tractors or hooks to complete the pull in the time limit.
o Fairs can have their own rules pertaining to age limits, noise levels, time restrictions and so on.
Dos and Don’ts
1. Please do not leave your tractor next to the (hen house). We need to see what’s going on and also need to hear. Tractor pulls are noisy places we realize, but you can help by moving your tractor to a staging area. You can stand near the track or speakers to see and hear what’s going on.
2. Please do not block the view from the bleachers.
3. Please don’t speed around on your tractor. We do not want anyone getting hurt and there are often children around. You do not have drive at idle, but please pay attention to your surroundings and speed.
4. Please feel free to ask any questions (or ask for updates) at the (Hen House), we are happy to do so. However, please know we have to keep the pull moving forward.
