The MS Jet Pull will be held Oct. 5 at T.F. Green Airport and registration is open. Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of this unique event, as teams of 25 people pull an enormous FedEx 757 across the tarmac with only their hands.
The pull can accommodate 30 teams, and nearly 20 teams have already signed up. Teams can register at www.msjetpull.com. The registration fee is only $50 per person, with a minimum fundraising contribution of $50.
Volunteers are needed and spectators are encouraged to cheer on the teams and enjoy fun activities for the family and a delicious BBQ. The entrance fee for adults is $10; children under 12 are $5; and children under 3 are free. No animals are permitted for their own safety, in keeping with airport rules.
The first pull is scheduled to start at 10 a.m., and the action will continue throughout the day. When a team registers, they choose a window of time so they are only required to commit to three hours on event day. Prizes will be awarded in many categories, including fastest pull and most team spirit.
