We are cancelling our June 16th pull due to flooding. We lost the battle with the river and all of West Alton is under water. This picture was taken on Sunday June 9th. The roofs you see are the tractor pull pavilion, the scale house and the new bathrooms.
We have 2 changes this year. 20" drawbar in all divisions. 3 hook maximum in Div 0. Hope to see you there.
Reminder: We raised the hook fee to $15 per hook in 2018. We have some increased costs and need to be able to cover them. We thought long and hard about this and came to the realization that it is time. We are still one of the least expensive pulls around so don't let this stop you from coming out and having a good time.
