Missouri State 2015

Missouri State Championships 2015, August 23,

Missouri State Fairgrounds, Sedalia MO, also on facebook.

Thank you to our main sponsor Janet Workman, and to our smaller suppliers and ones making contributions. Suppliers include: My Girls Ink of Malvern IA, who do the T-Shirts; and Trophy Shop of Creston IA, who do the Trophies. Thanks to the Missouri State Fair for the great facility and the State Fair ribbons presented to our first through sixth place finishers. Also the Fair provides for the Non-qualifier pull in the early morning. Just like the fair we were down in numbers this year, about 2/3rds the numbers of 2014. Yet I think we can say there was great competition for the top spots in each group. We did have a number of placers for outside Missouri, yet a check of the map shows they are much closer to our regular pulls than the other states. There was question about the western location, it is important to understand that the fair took us in, when eastern venues were not interested, we have a great facility, better than what we had, and we are appreciated by the fair. I will relate a thought about distance. First how far is to0 far for my child, second every state deals with this, the panhandle of Nebraska, Western Kansas, Northwest Iowa is closer to South Dakota's in Mitchell than Marshalltown, and lastly as parents we know there are times we have to stretch things a bit. Lets celebrate the ones that show up and encourage all to try to make our state the greatest show it can be.

Great pulling by the men and women. It was a great State pull with 128 pullers. We had 48 for the non-qualifier in the morning. 11 men and 2 women pulled giving us a total of 189 pulled on the day. We now have 8 pullers operating with 4 who are doing 4 or more a year, and more getting ready. Not bad to go from 2-3 in 2009 and a state pull average of 30-45 pullers to these numbers. For the first time since moving to Sedalia we did not set a new record, yet the fair as a whole was down quite a bit this year. The key to placing is practice at sanctioned pulls as much as possible during the year. In other states the kids are pulling all season at sanctioned pulls. If we do this no one is going to out pull the kids from Missouri. Fun pulls are just that fun, if your serious then the pulls need to be serious and sanctioned. Ask your local events to get sanctioned pulls in the future and in the meantime you will do the traveling we used to do for our girls.

Thank you Dennis, Jason, Steve and families for all the help.

Thanks everyone.
