The bale will be pushed inside a 100 foot lane, down and back (200 feet total). The lane will be 15 feet wide.
Bales crossing the lane boundaries will result in disqualification.
Participants may wear gloves to protect their hands.
Teams of maximum of 3 people, men or women or mixed teams.
Single elimination; fastest team will advance.
Participants must be 16 years of age.
Decisions made by the Festival Staff will be final.
