2008 was a success so we plan to do it again in 2009 - but bigger and better

Mark you calenders now to attend the 3rd annual show.
Last year the goal was to have a place for such events in Page.
This year the goal was to build a sled we could use here. We did and it was so good we hope to hold several impromtu pulls throughout the winter. It will give the small tractors a nice pull (some even a full pull in 1st gear), But by the 5th gear it is shutting down the big guys at about 190 feet. Really give the audience a nice show and the pullers a good idea as to what their tractors can do.
Next year the goal is to get Judy's Ferguson restored. It was in a forest fire and almost lost to the crusher at Page Steel. Jim lugged it home and has begun restoring it. He put a battery on the engine and it ran, so we should be good to go for next year. Jim and Judy joined FENA (Ferguson Enthusiasts of North America) in 2007 and this year Judy became Editor of the Ferguson Furrows magazine for FENA. Although they have over 800 members all over the world and regional events in the US each year, we have not had a South-West or Central-West region. In 2009 we will with a South-West Regional event in Apache Junction in March and a Central-West Regional event in conjunction with our event here in Page in September.
So plan now to attend particularly if you live in the Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, Nevada or California area. These events are for you!

It's countdown time

A month from today and we will be in full swing with our tractor pull.
A lot that we have to do yet to get to that point, but Jim and Gene are sure to have it all pulled together by that time.
Anyone wondering through Page during that time any help is welcome.
The track has more fill on it this year and they will soon begin to water and pack it down good.

They are building a sled that can be used here in Page year round. I will be posting photos of the building of it on this site beginning this week and will add to it as the work progresses.

We are already getting calls from people registering their tractors for the event and several people with display engines and tractors.
If you are planning on attending and need a place to stay be sure to start calling now for a room. There is also an RV park and self contained parking in the parking areas shown on the map below close to the pull site.
Look forward to seeing you here.

Plan now to attend the 2nd Annual Page Pull & Show

Our first pull, held last September was a great success. Plans are in the works already for our 2nd Annual Pull & Show this year in September on the 26th through the 28th.

Besides our Pull we would love to have lots of display items. If you have a neat old machine, engine, maybe even a collection of them, or some working models, etc. you would like to display, let us know and we will work you in.

This year Big Lake Trading Post will be doing more outside to make available all their great deli items so you won't miss a thing.

Plan now to attend.
