Next year at our local show the Feature is Garden Tractors & Orphans.

Our committee is looking into having some sort of GT Olympics as a fun thing.

Ideas like an egg race, blindfolded obstacle course with someone else giving directions, and a slow race have already surfaced.

Anyone else have any good ideas? Thanks - Alan

I have a game idea that would be fun with a GT. I seen this game done with large tractors and it looked like a challenge, backing a 4 wheeled cart, of course it would be large garden cart, but it would be fun.

Alan, I think your club is on track to do another great show. At the Little Guy's Show they did an obstacle course in reverse being timed. For the kids they did a contest where you had to grab a hotdog that was suspended in midair from a swingset in your mouth as you drove by. I definitely like the idea of the blindfolded obstacle course. That sounds like fun.
You and Steve and your club have some time to work on your next show, and I will hope to be there.

I will definitely come up for next year's show, and I will be bringing my best competition tractors. I already know which two tractors will compete the best in all events except the blindfold one, I run over enough stuff with my eyes open as it is lol.

Alan, I always enjoyed the tractor balancing board, or teeter-tooter game.

I hadn't ever thought of that with the GT's. The one we had was for 1 & 2 bottom plow type tractors & it was a challenge.

Caseguy, we gotta get this built ASAP... that way we can practice. :laughingteeth:

I think I will set up to practice also lol, I think a slow tractor will be easier to balance. Just gotta remember to not shift your weight lol.

A hydro with precise control is going to be the easiest.

Not if all you have is gear tractors, and the Case hydraulic drives aren't precise.

Well you have a year to practice this one. There used to be an IH Cub Group here in Iowa that did Square Dance s on the Cubs.
Very Impressive!

I can't dance on feet let alone on a tractor. I've seen video of them on Model H & M tractors, never seen it on GT's tho...
