Tug-of-War contest hopes to pull in big crowd for second year

By Patrick Fisher

Anyone wanting to test their strength at Dozinky can get a group of friends together for the tug-of-war team challenge.

Back for a second year, the event will be held Saturday following the Parade of Farm Pride in Memorial Park. Sponsoring the event is DJ’s Tug-of-War team. There will be a demonstration by national teams and competition for novice teams.

The requirements for any team that decides to compete are the same as last year. The number of pullers on a team is optional, but their total weight may not exceed 1,200 pounds. There may be substitutions for players. Tennis shoes and hiking boots are allowed, but cleats and gloves are not. There is an entry fee for each team.

Terry Connelly, a member of DJ’s, said that the change this year is the addition of a coed team competition. This can be a combination of three men and three women.

They can also make it a coed/family pull
