Think you can pull a 47,000 lb plane? Gather a team of your 4 closest friends and you'll have a chance to prove it! REGISTRATIONS WILL BE CLOSED AT 6am ON 12/1/17

Each team will have an opportunity to pull the Spirit of Freedom (a Douglas C-54). The team with the fastest pull in each category (Schools, Businesses, Churches/Civic and Community Groups, First Responders/Military and Other) wins. There will also be an award for the team with the fastest pull overall and the team with the best costumes. 

Spectators and cheerleaders are encouraged and you may bring your lawn chairs! Participants may wear team gear and/or costumes! And, there will be food, fun and family activities to enjoy throughout the event and after. 

Gates open at 9am and all teams will be required to check-in and complete a liability waiver prior to pulling. Participants under the age of 18 will need their parent or guardian to sign the liability release for them.
