Ice Cream, cotton candy, hot dogs, bratwurst, cheese curds,
raffle tickets, loud crowds, trucks, tractors, and earplugs for
just $1 at a youth group concession stand. This, and more, was the scene at the 17th Annual Stanley Truck and Tractor Pull in Chapman Park.
Yes the new Stanley Community Center was done—just in time. With crowds descending Saturday night, the north kitchen area of the Stanley Community Center was occupied by Boy Scout Troop 50 selling hot dogs and fries among its many offerings, while on the east wall Our Savior’s Lutheran Church youth and adults were selling cotton candy and earplugs, the funds to go toward the youth mission trip and other things like Luther Camp near Chetek.
On the south side of the Community Center, the Stanley Rodeo had its cheese curd stand parked, with business brisk after 7 p.m. when the Truck Pull started. Also on the south side of the Stanley Community Center were beer tickets, a bar, and the Stanley Police Department booth, selling non-alcoholic snow cones to help with expenses toward its K9 fund. The Stanley Sno Chargers were also present Saturday, while on the north end there was ice cream, with 2 scoops just $3.00. Making the rounds to serve drinks during the competition was Team Aubree, with an upcoming ball tournament in August. And the long-running Ford, Dodge, Chevy, and GMC argument?
It got a hearing, though we suspect not definitive. Check out
the photos below for crowds and smoke!
