Younger son and I attended a pull
yesterday. Did not know until later
in the day that EVERY CLASS was
paying winner only. I have seen
"jackpot " classes done winner take
all but never every class offered.
Handbill advertised 50% payback per
class. I assumed they would pay 3 or
more spots: depending on number of
entries. we had pulled one of the
tractors 2 of the 8 classes we
entered before finding out the pay
schedule. We dropped the other 6
classes, loaded up and came home.
What are others opinions on no one
but the class winner receiving prize
money? And many of the classes with
15 plus entries. Just curious if I
am alone in my opinion.

You deprived your kid of pulling 6 more classes because they didn't pay you......

Let that sink in.

Guess I should have stated my son was
included in making a joint decision.
He was not impressed either. He is
32 by the way. Half of the entry fee
was his money

I guess that changes things a bit.

Payback pulls are extremely rare around here. But obviously that's a thing where your from.

All we get to do is spend tens of thousands of $$ to get a $2 trophy....

Our club pays the first three places but if there is only 2 or 3 tractors in class I think they only pay first place. Once in a while somebody will put the money up for a Jackpot class and winner takes all. Myself I pull for the fun of it and our club has a nice bunch of guys to pull with.

A very few classes had less than 10 entries. Most were 12 to 20.

Why should they pay for 2nd and 3rd place. They are not winners. Kind of like participation medals.

Around here, many of the pulls are just for fun.
If it's a fair pull they add money to the classes to bring people in. They payback spots based on class size. It's typical to have 30-35 in a class. Payback up to 10th place or even more. Smaller classes say 10 or so they may pay up to 5th. Some fair pulls will even pay nearly every place. You might get 5 bucks back on a $20 hook. All depends on the venue.

I prefer to go to pulls with a payback, who doesn't like the chance to win some money. But the fun pulls are just as good. Bragging rights and usually a bit cheaper on the hook fee.

I don't go to pulls for the money. I just go to make the JD owners mad.

Honestly, it wouldn't have bothered me. The one tractor would have had a good chance to win. The other most likely would not even come close. But it makes a good rolling weight rack.
