    Has anyone ever heard of anybody having a grass cutting contest. Something where you can bring your crew and compete against other crews?????????
  2. This could be a good idea kind of have a circuit where you could go around and compete like Nascar. I have five acres that could be cut, and we could be the first stop for the cutting teams and I'll put up a $25.00 prize.
  3. Around here it is called the yard and home show case they ride around and find nice looking yards and homes and award the homeowner with a write up in the paper and if you are lucky and it is one of your customers you get an Honorable mention in the write up as well with all your contact info included. theres nothing like word of mouth advertising when it's backed up with public news awards for a yard you serviced..

    Sounds like fun. Where do you live in the southeast? We could have some lawnmower races too.

    municipalities around here have a snow plow rodeo, where they run through obstacle courses etc to show off their snow plow and truck driving skills

    Too bad there isn't a way that we could all participate . we could even have trimmer races to see who cuts the quickest and with the nicest finish... I would be in. I could be like the lumberjack competition.

    I have a mental picture of Michael Jackson's " Beat It" video in my head, with two crews circling each other...one crew is the "Z's", and the other is the "Standers"..lol...then there would be the "Crapsman Crew" , "Tractor Triad", "Pushmower Punishers"...sheesh, I need to go to bed..LMAO...beat it ...beat it...lol<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/15/15_1_120.gif' border=0></a>
