In an effort to keep us tractor nuts, entertained, amused, and having some fun, while we wait for spring, we've come
up with a little contest. We've parked a wreck of a junker GT carcass out on a trout pond.

The contest is simple.

Pick the date and time, that the steering wheel disappears, and you win.
George (NUTNDUN) is offering up a prize package from GTT.(he'll be along to announce that)

This contest is open to site supporters, so if you've been thinking about becoming one, maybe now is the time.

Here's how it works.
Head over to the contest thread in the Site Supporter forum.
Post your pick of date and hour. IE: March 10th, 3pm. That's your opening. Duplicate entries
not allowed. 1st come first served.
Entries must be made before groundhog day, Feb.2nd. One entry per member.
A camera taking date/time stamped photos will verify the event.
That's it, it's that simple.

Here's some tips to help you with your entry.
It's located at approximately 45.4 Lat, 80.1 Lon.
Last year we had more winter in March than in Feb. up here.
Two years ago, we tilled the garden in mid March.
This year we haven't had much winter so far.
If there where a major mid winter thaw/rain event, the current of water running into
the pond, heads directly towards the tractor.
Good luck.


I'm sure some are thinking that this might be a waste of a good GT. Believe me, it's far from good.
Frame is broken, transaxle is shot, and the rest is pretty much beyond repair. It's been degreased, had
the fluids drained, and any usefull parts removed. It had a good life, and now will make a good hiding
spot for the trout, as well as entertain us.
Ok, lets get those entries in.

Also, even if a date is taken, there are plenty of hours left in every day to choose from, so the day can have many people listed, as long as each have a different time.

Here's how it works.
Head over to the contest thread in the Site Supporter forum.

Last year we had more winter in March than in Feb. up here.
Two years ago, we tilled the garden in mid March.

See Above for the prizes.
Due to weather condition's staying cold and the lack of BIG Bears causing problems around the tractor, Will and myself have decided to open up the contest till February 14th so you have a bit more time to join.
29 entries so far.
