Eric has the bug

He went to Hastings mi, last week and came in second for the pull. He's going to pull again monday at the ottawa fair grounds, we will see how he does there. He's pulled just a few times now, but does have the bug for it.

Thanks Mike for posting results. I think for just starting in pulling comp. second is impressive. Eric is still learning and with help from other pullers should do well
