Bobcat recently announced its Great Bobcat Tractor Pull Contest with a grand prize that includes a nicely outfitted compact tractor with implement package. All you need to do is visit the contest’s website and describe how a Bobcat compact tractor would pull you to new levels of productivity at your place.
According to the contest rules, beginning March 6 (last Friday) Bobcat will pull five winners weekly through August and feature their entries online. Entries will be judged on creativity, quality, completeness and originality. From these weekly winners, 10 monthly winners will be chosen and will pull in the limited edition copy of Bobcat: Fifty Years of Opportunity, written by Marty Padgett. This is a wonderful book ... yes, I read it cover to cover.
All weekly and monthly winners qualify for the grand prize, a new Bobcat CT230 compact tractor and implements package. The second-prize winner will be awarded a new Bobcat 2200 utility vehicle. Ten third-place winners will pull on a Bobcat jacket.
The first 500 entrants will receive a gift from Bobcat. The final day to submit an entry is August 31, 2009. This contest is limited to residents of the continental United States and Canada. For a complete list of rules and an entry form, visit www.bobcat.com/tractorpull.
Here's your chance to put your creative juices to work. Good luck.
