Robb,are we s'posed to bring the "old red" pulling sled along? If so could there be a track to pull on for the people interested? I think a dirt track could be fine if it was packed down with a few passes with a pickup truck or something heavy so traction would be there. That way if you want I can bring the "hybrid" Cub with the Deere/Yanmar turbo diesel along.
Mike Horn asked me to post the following with regard to this weekend's events....
<FONT SIZE="+2">Spring Break Attendees</FONT>
Need to go over a few of the "ground rules" (no pun intended) for Saturday's Spring Break event.
1. The name of the event is <FONT SIZE="+2">Weekend Freedom Machines Spring Break</FONT>. The Cub boys are really struggling with the name of this years event.
2. Please register for the event. Registration will be shutdown on Thursday morning. If you are in limbo on attending, it is in your best interest to register. By registering, you have agreed to the rules as presented on the registration page. Please follow them.
3. Plowing will begin at 9 a.m. Please respect our hosts by not arriving at the site prior to 8:30 a.m.
4. Respect others by plowing at a respectable depth (5" - 8"). I will warn you only once.
5. Stay at least one tractor length behind the person in front of you and respect their right to select any speed they want. Do not stop and then run up behind someone to only repeat the process. Enjoy the plowing opportunity you are being given. I will warn you only once.
6. The Raffle will be at 1 p.m. Tickets will be sold at the event. A list of the prizes will also be available. Tickets cost $1 or 6 for $5. Advance purchases are possible by sending an email to Robb or me. The emails must be received by noon (CDT) on Thursday.
7. A tractor lineup known as the furrow wall will immediately follow the raffle. A group picture will then be coordinated following the "furrow wall".
8. Be safe! Don't refuel a hot tractor. Control your speeds when traveling to/from field. Use care when removing stuck tractors.
9. Have Fun! Robb and others have put a lot of effort into this event. Come and enjoy yourselves. The weather forecast looks perfect.
Yes it is Keith,just a simple step-on sled that anybody's tractor can hook to and have fun. It isn't what we use for GT pulling of course(you've seen that sled at Des Moines) but it does offer a chance to have some fun without breaking anything. Just haven't heard if we should bring it or not.
Keith,BTW get a Super 8 discount card when you get there,it's free but you will save 10% of the bill! I stayed at that place a few years ago was up all night with a party down the hall!! bring yer earplugs or a Peacemaker!
