Welcome to WKRG’s “Mark Your Calendar” for Thursday, April 11, 2019.  Today, John Nodar welcomes Joni Hendee and Chris Curry to talk about the Dumas Wesley Community Center’s Fourth Annual Plane Pull.

Can you handle the ultimate man versus machine challenge? Dumas Wesley is challenging the community to participate in this extreme and unique event that pits teams against an Airbus aircraft
weighing 130,000 pounds. Teams compete to see who can pull the plane over 12 feet in the fastest amount of time. The event is open to the public and will also include entertainment, food trucks, a Kid’s Zone, and an awards ceremony. Spectators are strongly encouraged to attend and cheer on their favorite team! This fundraiser raises both money and awareness for the Dumas Wesley Community Center. Spectators get in free! Registation deadline is May 6th .
