Description of Special Events

Every fall the team holds a sponsor pull where we invite the club members and team sponsors to come out and get some networking time. We do a presentation about last year's tractor and then go out to the Ag. Engineering Farm to do some test pulling with our tractors.
We have our annual competition in May at the Expo Gardens in Peoria, IL. A-Team and X-Team will both bring a tractor to the event to compete in multiple events specified by the competition.
