We have been trying to become a non-profit group for quite a few years now.
It has finally happened!!!!
This means a couple of things for the driver's:
money you pay, you can get a receipt for and claim it on your income
We are going to be trying a new computer registration system at the May pull. It is still in the 'production' stages, but I really think it will make things a LOT easier in the long run. Because of the non-profit status, we have to account for every penny we take in or give out, so we have to have signatures on the forms, and you will have the choice (if you receive a payout) of a check, or cash. If you take cash, we will need your signature on a receipt. We are in the process of coming up with a pre-registration form so you can register on-line, and we will have the paperwork ready when you get to the registration table. THIS IS STILL IN THE PLANNING STAGE--NOT EFFECTIVE YET!!!!
These are a couple of the changes that we are making. I really think, as I said before, they will make registration easier (when we get used to it). As with anything new, I will need your help and support as we work our way thru this.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the registration table in May and June.
Roaring Thunder (a division of Wild Wheels Weekend) will hold a pull for ALL garden tractor classes May 17-18 (with 19th as a rain date). When we get everything finalized, I will post more.
I have posted all the information on the Roaring Thunder page. Click on the link above.

Those of you who have been
followers of Wild Wheels Weekend will remember Logan, the boy we helped a
Wild Wheels Weekend is held as a benefit pull.
There seems to be some confusion about our pulls. The pulls we put on are BENEFITS. We make NO MONEY on them at all. All profits (not proceeds) go to help with the medical bills of a local child. All the people working there donate their time.
has been to the pulls can see the improvements we have made. The pulls
started out with the old football field fixed to become a track. There
were no guard rails for safety; no lights for night pulls (remember using
headlights to light the track?); a tape measure for measuring; poor scales
to weigh in. We now have guard rails on both sides of the track--no more
snow fence to separate the track from the spectators; a very well lit track area for
the night pulls; we now have a laser to measure distance; and we have been told that our track is
the best a lot of the pullers have ever pulled on. These are all
improvements that have been made in the last couple years. Most pulls are
held during the local fair week, so they get support from the
state/county. We receive none of that. All our monies are raised by
sponsors, entrance fees and pulling fees. I have added a history page with
pictures to show the changes I just mentioned. We very much appreciate the
support we receive.
factor in the town's favor is its location. It is very easy to get
to--hard to find on the map, but easy to get to. We are about half-way
between Binghamton and Utica on Route 8. It is easily accessible from I-88
(Exit 9-Sidney, then Route 8 north for about 10 miles); Or take Route 8
south from Utica for about 50 miles; or I-81 to Cortland, Route 41 east to
Cincinnatus, Route 23 east to South New Berlin, then Route 8 south to Mt.
