Pine Top Farm is expecting up to three inches of rain between Wednesday and Thursday of this week and that means the ground will be very well saturated. The organizers have kindly asked that all competitors and spectators refrain from driving cars and other motorized vehicles around the farm to prevent mud accumulation. Pack your good wellies and get some steps in to keep Pine Top in pristine condition this weekend.
