Pulling in Paris--4 the Kids
By Robin Gregg
High Limit Productions Foundation is putting on the third Children's Miracle Power Pull on Friday, June 17th at Paris, MO fairgrounds.
There are eight individuals that have a passion for pulling and for children have come together for a cause. Justin and Aliesha Edwards, Chad and Oliva Richardson, Chris and Carrie Popkes, Stan Robinson and Jerred Robinson makes up the group for High Limits Productions Foundation.
The group had originally toured the MU Children's Hospital where their hearts were touched by the NICU. The dream of helping Children came true in 2019 when they were able to raise and donate $41,128.80 and purchase a Giraffe Omni-bed for another baby to be kept alive outside of the womb. Because of Covid they were not able to put the pull on in 2020. Last year they raised and donated $51.014.04. Please help make the dream come true! High Limit Productions Foundation partnered with Children's Miracle Network out of Columbia, Mo and Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League. This year their goal is to have a NICU room in the name of HLP.
Events are very important to the Children's hospital; they rely on donations to keep various programs in the Hospital going. Every dollar stays local to help sick and injured children across the State. No child is every turned away regardless of illness or the ability to pay. 100 + pullers are expected from all over the country with high quality trucks and tractors will be in our very own small town of Paris.
Classes for the night are; 9500 Limited Pro Stock, 8500 Limited Pro Stock, Light Limited Super Stock, Light, Weight Super Stock, Pro Stock Tractors 5.0, Pro Farm Tractors, and Light Pro Stock Tractors. Great Variety and some of the BEST tractors in the United States!
Admission and Pit Tickets are $20 for adults, with 12 and under FREE. Concessions will be available and sponsored by the Paris FFA Chapter. Spokes and Spurs Tavern of Madison will be selling beer and drinks. (NO coolers allowed but bring your lawn chairs). There will also be many giveaways for the fans. Please come out and enjoy the fun!!
The VIP tent will be catered by Papa Rock Catering/BBQ out of Madison for our VIP Sponsors. A delicious meal and drinks will be served.

Special thanks to Monroe County Ambulance District, Fire Department, and Sheriff's Department, City of Paris, Lucas Oil Staff, 4-H and FFA, catering staff, sled guys, and all the individual Volunteers for making this possible! This is an exciting event for a small town featuring one of Midwest's finest pulls. The Children's Miracle Power Pull won the "Pull of the Year" award from Lucas Oil in 2019! In 2019 the show tripled the population and boosted our local economy for the night!
The Missouri Farm Pullers Association will pull at 5pm and the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League will pull at 7pm. Gates open at 2pm.
It takes a village to pull the night off. If you would like to volunteer, you have several options to choose from: track prep; pull offs; gates; parking; pit parking; VIP tent; ice and water runners; money runners; hospitality tent; and/or the beer garden. Contact any member for direction.
