Welcome to 2014 Plane Pull for Special Olympics New Jersey
Saturday, Oct. 4 Newark Liberty International Airport
A huge amount of THANKS goes out to the volunteers who endured being rain-soaked for hours and to the 34 teams who came out to prove that they "Got What It Takes!" Your commitment and dedication to Special Olympics New Jersey is MOST appreciated. We certainly couldn't have done it without you.
2014 TEAM RESULTS are available to download, see left sidebar. Team and Action Photos may be found on the Special Olympics NJ FLICKR SITE and the NJ LETR FLICKR SITE.
A Team captain leads the team through three competitions:

2) Fastest Pull: Team who has pulled the aircraft 12 feet in the least amount of time.
3) Lowest Combined Weight Pull: Lowest team weight to pull the aircraft 12 feet, within a two minute time limit.
