All students in any course of study are welcome to make a team for the event, and the $200 per team fee goes directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph. This year, the OAC raised over $9600 in external donations for the charity.

The day was filled with tractor pulling, dancing, music, food, prizes, and more. The winning team overall gets their name added to the coveted Tractor Tug trophy, with prizes donated by sponsors to the best-dressed team, the team that raised the most money, and the team with the fastest pull. is a proud sponsor of the event.
