Thanks for all the good times you give our children at these pedal pulls. There is only one thing that bothers us about these pulls. We have noticed for the past few years that the people that help you put these pulls on bring there children with them and let them pull at most of these pulls. We think this is great but considering most of them are state and/or national champs and have the advantage of getting to use the equipment to practice on and /or where they pull more it does not give the rest of the children in these small communities a chance to get a trophy or to qualify to go on to state. We would just like to see more children get the opportunity.
Reply: Thank You Bob and I would now like to take this time to reply to your concerns.
First off I would like to say for the record that NONE of our helpers children get
to practice on our equipment as it is stated in our Frequently Asked Questions.
Secondly our pulls are open to ALL 4-11 year old kids including our helpers children
Also note the next time you are at one of our pulls that when our helper Jeff's child
comes up to pull that he gets no help starting the pull but all the other children do.
Now let me ask this question to you Does this sound like special treatment to you?
Our helpers are honest people and are all volunteers and do this out of the kindness
of there hearts. Please feel free to volunteer sometime and you will find out that there
children do not get any special treatment. As for our helpers children getting to pull
at so many pulls during the year your child is also eligible to compete at all of our
pulls. Sorry if this reply has upset any of our pullers or even you Bob but we felt that
we needed to address your concerns.
