  • Mac Kids Plane Pull

    I am putting together a Contrans Flatbed Group team to enter the annual Mac Kids Hospital Plane Pull that is happening Sunday June 5th at the Hamilton Airport. This event is a worthwhile cause to help raise funds for the hospital that helps so many children across the country…Plus we get the chance to be challenged to pull a 125,000 lb Boeing plane across the tarmac! Each team is given 2 chances to pull the plane a total of 25 ft and the fastest time overall wins bragging rights until next year. The event runs from 10-2 and includes food trucks, cop cars, bomb truck, strong man/strong woman contest on site, and free passes to the Warplane Heritage Museum.

    If you’re interested in joining the team, please let me know. Each team member must contribute a minimum of $25 to participate which can be raised through fundraising or can be donated by the participant themselves. We must have 15 members on our team minimum, up to a maximum of 25, so if you are seriously interested in joining our team, please let me know. If you sign up, I am committing you to be there. Registration is open to all Contrans Flatbed Group employees first and if need be, we will open it up to family members after everyone has had a chance. But please keep in mind that family is welcome to attend this free event to cheer you on!

    Thank you, Kara
