Seven Consecutive Years Winning Pull of the Year

2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018!

Thank you to our sponsors, volunteers, vendors, and fans for making 2019 a huge success. 

With 2019 being our first attempt at hosting pulls on both Friday and Saturday nights, we were absolutely thrilled with the results.  Yes, we need to tweak a few things for next year (and add a few surprises for our 10th anniversary too); but overall we now know the logistics of making this event even better than it has ever been.

New for 2020
