There are two premier events which most pullers would like to pull at and are huge draws for the fans. One indoor one is in Louisville Ky at the National Farm Machinery Show. This event takes place in the middle of February. The outdoor one is in Bowling Green, OH which takes place in August. There are many big events throughout the country down to local levels. As for southeast and east, some of the larger organizations are:

Mid South Pullers - Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama

Southern Pullers Association - Georgia, Florida

United Pullers of the Carolinas - North and South Carolina

East Coast Pullers - Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia

They had a pull at Batesville, Ms last year on the 4th of July but it's not on their site for this year, yet. They put on a pretty good show.

When in doubt mat it out!!

I just haven't seen one in a long time and was looking to see how far I would have to travel.

Do they not run the multiple engine tractors any more?

Multi engines generally run the bigger events not most local ones.

I don't know how far south and east they get, but OTTPA is a very good show. They seem to run the TX, OK, MO, IA, NE areas. You can look at their schedule on their website http://www.outlawpulling.com/They have some really good multi engine mod tractors. A little of everything from Allisons to the big 12 cyl Rolls-Royce motors and a little of everything in between.

run what ya brung and hope you brung enough
