Tractor pull supports Black Hawk students
GALVA — For the 12th year, the Galva/Tri-County Garden Tractor Pullers Club hosted their fall indoor pull at Black Hawk College. Garden tractors from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri and Wisconsin converged on the college’s East Campus for the event.
Classes included stock garden tractors up to 25 horsepower and alcohol garden tractors up to 100 horsepower. More than 150 hooks took place during the day.
“This is a great event for the pullers, community and students of the Black Hawk College ag/auto mech program,” said Chris Craig, treasurer of the Galva/Tri-County Pullers Club.
BHC agriculture/automotive mechanics students reap the benefits of a successful pull as the Galva/Tri-County Garden Tractor Pullers Club uses profits from the event to give scholarships to the students that can be used for tuition, books and/or tools. Last year, three $400 scholarships were awarded.
