    Who's doing what where?
    I know there's the 4x4 Jamboree in VT but what else?

    If you like truck pulls and/or local fairs you can check out our club (lots-o-badass Chevy's). Some sweet tow rigs and toys as well.

    I have not finalized the schedule for 2005, but it should be posted in the upcoming months.

    some fair dates...

    I wished I'd read about the show in VT earlier!--its TODAY and Tomorrow! :doah: ...but I haven't got enough gas money to go to Essex Junction,its 200 miles from me!..oh well... :( ..maybe next year..

    The Washington County Fair in Wyoming RI has truck and tractor pulls every year--they had some good rigs there last year..they usually have the fair the second week of august..(sorry,I didn't look to see what day--Google the Washinton County Fair,and you'll find a website for the fair)...

    The Rutland Vt.Fair has truck and tractor pulls too,usually held around Labor day...

    Wish they had more going on around here...new england is pretty boring....yawn.. :doah: :crazy:

    Too bad I'm broke!

    I'm only 15-20 miles from Marshfield!...I usually go to the fair to watch the Demolition Derby,but this year I could not go..no money!.. :( ..the Washington County fair in RI was last weekend too!..

    I wonder why most of the tractor and truck pulls always seen to fall on the same days! :confused: ...you'd think they would stagger the dates a bit more..seems like everything is scheduled at the same time here--then NOTHING for months on end!..

    They had some good tractor pulls last year at the Brooklyn CT fair...I didn't look to see when it is(was?) this year though..no money to go,why look!.. :crazy:

    Mt.Burb!--I'm from Fitchburg MA originally!--lived in Leominster for about 5 years for awhile..the place has changed a LOT since I was there..looks like everyone there is from Aisia now...drug capital of new england! :screwy: :yikes: ...but its getting just as bad here in this area I'm in now too... :crazy:
