Appalling ground conditions on the show field did not deter or hamper the event in any way and the competition was started on time at 12 noon. Six teams contested the five weights: Hadleigh, LCS, Triple F, Royal Marines, Conningsby and Diesel Power. The event was sponsored in the medals by Dave Ling for which the Federation are very grateful. The judges were Steve Gardner and Dave Ling and the recorder was Karen Gardner. During the event Dave Ling conducted a children’s fun pull which saw him judging the pull with about 30 to 40 kids taking part and each one received a medal, again provided by Dave Ling. This year was the 150th Annual Show at Heckington…the longest running continual held show of its type in the Country!
