Bernie Tractor Pull

Tilmon Antique Tractor Pulling and the Bernie Tractor Club held its final Tractor Pull for the season on November 1, 2008.  There were over 80 pulls, and the nice fall weather made for a great day for both participants and spectators.

 

         

The Tilmon's take their competitions seriously.  Pictured here are Michael, Terry, Henry, and Misty.

     

 

New to the competitions was the King of the Hill Series.  This was a anything goes competition as long as pullers stayed within the proper weight and speed limits. 

 

Kevin McClung of Parma and his 1946 M Farmall was the 1st place winner in the King of the Hill 4750.

 

Michael Tilmon of Bernie and his 1947 M Farmall was the 1st place winner in the King of the Hill 6750.
