Example of how contest works:

A team of 3 will get into their truck. When given the sign, the team will exit their vehicle (the time starts when the doors opens) and begin stacking the bales of straw onto their team’s truck. After the team has loaded all 40 bales of straw, then all the team members get back into their truck and proceed through the obstacle course.

After completing the obstacle course, team members exit their vehicle and stack all the bales neatly onto the wagon. After the bales are neatly stacked onto the wagon, all team members run to get inside their vehicle. Once all the doors of the truck are closed, the timer will stop.
