October 2-5, 2015This year's event is shaping up to be better than ever. More Displays, Lots of Pulling, More demonstrations, a longer Tractor Parade/Ride, more seating. AND a new addition of a Barrel Train for the kids. The train will be supervised so it gives the kiddies something to do while parents look over the displays.
Please weigh in your tractor as it arrives, whether you plan to pull it or just display it.
More seating available - We have acquired two more sets of bleachers for your convenience. Still be sure to bring the sun-screen and wear a hat. Big Lake Trading Post will be fully stocked with plenty of food and cold drinks and we will have some covered areas.
If you bring a tractor for display only, or don't have a tractor with you, but are an EDGE&TA member and would like to try pulling, I'm sure we can hook you up with one of our tractors. We have found it is great fun to see what different people pull on the same tractor.
The whole idea is having fun. But we want to stay safe too, so our rules in all things are what are prescribed by EDGE&TA. We might add to one of their manditory requirements if we feel in our circumstances they aren't strong enough, but we will NOT ignore any of the EDGE&TA manditory requirements. EDGE&TA rules can be found on their website EDGE&TA Safety Manditory Requirements and any additions can be found in our newsletters on our main site. Newsletters
This year we are going to have a Raffle. Tickets will be $1 for 1 $5 gets you 5 tickets and 1 free ticket,
$10 gets you 10 tickets and 2 free tickets and a free hat. And you can choose which items you want to try to win.
We will have our buttons available for $1 each. All money raised from the buttons, and the Raffle, go toward the upkeep of the equipment and maintenance of the event site.
We look forward to having a bigger crowd this year. Big Lake Trading Post, besides being our sponsor is a regular convenience store with it's own customer base for gas, etc. We ask that if you are coming for our event you follow the directions of those helping with parking so that we can disrupt Big Lake's normal business operation as little as possible. Thank You
