2023 ECIPA Season Recap

First off, I want to thank all of you for your part in making the 2023 ECIPA Season a successful season. It’s no easy task to dedicate the time and resources into making a run at a Season Points Championship! The competition level within our group is as good as you will find anywhere in the country. Our promoters, fans, sponsors and pullers all appreciate that competitiveness immensely. The proof is in plain sight;  more promoters wanting ECI pulls, larger sponsors wanting to partner with ECI and pullers from all over the Midwest coming to our pulls or becoming members, as they all see value in what our club has to offer. 

Special thanks to Champion Seed and Larry Van Wyk for coming on board this season as Title Sponsor of the East Central Iowa Pullers Association. Champion Seed not only provided a financial contribution to ECI, but they provided the use of their gooseneck trailer for us to use for sign up and transportation of all of our equipment/supplies needed to put on our shows.

If you would like to submit rule changes for the 2024 season, all rule changes must be submitted in writing prior to November 1st. You can do so by submitting the “Rule Change Form & Survey” on our website or sending an email to pullecipa@gmail.com. Rule changes will be discussed during our general meeting on November 11th, 2023, and voted on by the ECIPA Board of Directors.

Note, there will be elections held for 2 Board of Directors and all officer positions are also up for vote. All current 2023 members can vote. 1 vote per pulling vehicle. We will be needing to elect a new secretary/treasurer as Gina is stepping down after this season. Special thanks to Gina for all of her hard work over the past number of years, it is very much appreciated!
