Then/Now Barge Pull

Last weekend a few of us got together to take part in the Barge Pull as part of the Then/Now project.

The object of the exercise was to have different groups pull a working barge with around 10 tons of timber on board as far as possible in 2 minutes.

The GKC team managed to beat the horse and the dog, but were humiliated by a bunch of kids 🙂
