Meeting with al and crew went very well. It looks like this is going to be one heck of a good time for anyone that wants to pull. You need to be there for the saftey inspections on Saturday. Wheelie bars are a must. Terrian is pasture grass. We are shooting for an 1100 lb class and will confirm that on Sunday. Petes Tire Barn is donating a brand new set of pulling tractor tires for the grand prize. T&A tractor pulling is all about having a good time (fyi poor sports not welcome). Each pull we put on benifits Saint Judes.

Will post more on Sunday.

Thanks,
Andre

Looking to go with a few family members.
But, weather is not sounding good?
Rain most of weekend?
If they postpone / cancel will they post on web site?
Or is it rain or shine?

Thanks,
Joe

Well we played around after tech and weigh in ( 1100 lbs) and commenced to play around doing some test pulls . Only had to pull it like 3 feet and that was good. Everyone liked the 125 as it does look nice and he did very well! With 23-8.50-12 aggys on the rear. I think the cub and the 2 Ford's are gonna have a battle between them . I met Andre and the gang and they are a really fun bunch and believe me when I say it is a very very laid back and friendly group!! Can't wait for tomorrow s pull . Hope to see a few more GTT members it would be awesome! :)

I'm thinking the Cub. That engine looks a bit different. But the Toro has a lot of black on the hood! LOL
