The Tug  of War Across the Harbor was as exciting as ever in year three of the event. Marden Builders, 2016 champion, arrived with the huge winner’s trophy hoping to retain its champion status at the end of the 2017 pull. But that was not meant to be.

The Bud Light/Federal Distributors team was hungry and ready to best every team it pulled against – something one of the Bud Light team members made pretty clear – bring it on! One Bud Light puller was overheard saying anyone under 225 interested in being on the team was turned away ... sure, but the women on the team (every team has two, nine members in total) were the only exception for the Bud Light team. The team’s hunger to be the champ led it to victory.

Local teams were from Knickerbocker Group, Maine Coast Contracting, McSeagull’s and Closson Landscaping. McSeagull’s pulled its way to second place and Maine Coast Contracting took third.
