I wonder why these pulls won't draw a crowd in the stands? If you notice it is most always pullers & family . Was like this in Tn. Seams the only time we get a crowd is at a county fair. Seems promo of these events doesn't work. You need the crowd to offset the expense not to mention all the hard work. I know at fairs there are other events that pull people in but this is a big problem with antique pulling events.
mtc Thanks for reading
I have pulled farm & antique for over 30+ yrs.

I think a lot of the reason you can"t get spectators is the order classes are pulled. Pull 3500,4000,4500 and you see the same tractors pull over and over. For a spectator, no one wants to see that. For a puller and sled operator that works great. I understand why it"s done that way, but it just makes it boring. Maybe pull a light class then a heavy class, a 3mph class then 12mph or open class. Mixing it up would keep it more interesting for spectators, but in turn, cause more work for the pullers and sled operator. Not to mention more confusion.

i believe it's free for the spectators at Tunica and still can't draw a crowd. just the nature of antique pulling, no one shows up but the pullers.
