Count down time.....

The Kevin Cosner's movie "Field of Dreams" made famous the line, "if you build it, they will come". Well Gene Tucker and Jim Kitson are trying their best to build a great pull area on undeveloped land by Big Lake Trading Post.
Check out our first slide show "If you build it, they will come", on their progress. Once finished there will be room for Red's trailer and canopy, tractor parking, pull area, and bleachers. On other areas of the lot is pleanty of room for display tractors and display trailers with motors, etc. Hauling trailers, cars, trucks, r/v's, campers, etc. can park across the street. I will be adding more slide shows later.

Also we have set up a poll to get an idea as to what to expect. Please take a minute or two and select your answers.

Page is within 5 min. drive of Big Lake Trading Post. At the Page city park the Helping Hands Agency that works with handicap children will be having their annual Fall Festival. They have expanded it this year into a 3 day event. It's a great event to coincide with our Pull and Show, to make for a full weekend of downhome fun.
