Garden tractors pull for Black Hawk College scholarship dollars

Garden Tractor PullFor the 12th year, the Galva/Tri-County Garden Tractor Pullers Club hosted their Fall Indoor Pull at Black Hawk College. Garden tractors from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri and Wisconsin converged on the college’s East Campus for the annual one-day event.

Classes included stock garden tractors up to 25 horsepower and alcohol garden tractors up to 100 horsepower. More than 150 hooks took place over the course of the day.

“This is a great event for the pullers, community and students of the Black Hawk College ag/auto mech program,” said Chris Craig, treasurer of the Galva/Tri-County Pullers Club.

“Club members, BHC faculty, staff members and students work together to make sure the event runs smoothly and is a success,” he said.

BHC agriculture/automotive mechanics students reap the benefits of a successful pull as the Galva/Tri-County Garden Tractor Pullers Club uses profits from the event to give scholarships to the students that can be used for tuition, books and/or tools. Last year, three $400 scholarships were awarded.

“On behalf of the Galva/Tri-County Pullers Club, I’d like to thank the Black Hawk College Ag/Auto Mechanics Club for co-hosting this event and the college’s United Way Team for operating the concession stand.” Craig said. “Their hard work helped pull off another successful event.”
