Visit the Villages Tractor Trek 2017

Event Date: July 8th, 2017

Visit the Villages Tractor Trek is in its 10th year as a signature fund-raising event for Eden Foundation.  Over the past ten years the Tractor Trek has visited 25 different villages or village locations, all south of Hwy #14.  The ride this year is scheduled for Saturday July 8th, heads westward and then north with Pembina Thresherman’s Museum as the final destination.   Visit the Villages Tractor Trek is a fund-raiser to support mental health recovery programs for individuals living in our Southern Health region.  The funds raised make a direct impact in supporting people on their mental health journey.

This is a special year as it is a celebration of the fact that it was 50 years ago that the Eden organization began.  As part of the celebrations, Visit the Villages Tractor Trek will end the ride this year at Pembina Thresherman’s Museum with Tractor Olympics.

The list of events include:
Wagon Back-up—Back up a four-wheel wagon without going out of bounds.
Barrel Roll—Roll a barrel from start point to finish without going out of bounds or crushing it.
Blind Man’s Leap—Drive blind-folded (we’ll likely use a welders mask) for a distance of 20 feet and stop.  Closest to the line wins.
Chain Fold—Fold up a 20 foot chain onto a 2 foot square by driving forward and backing up.
Slow Race—Slowest tractor wins.  No you can’t use the clutch!
Balance Beam—Balance your tractor on a teeter-totter beam.  Quickest time wins.
