Shed Haulers Bash 2021 Set for March

Like most events last year, the annual Shed Haulers Bash was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizers are planning on making the event happen this year, March 19-20, in New Holland, Pennsylvania, at the Petra Church parking lot.

This will be an outdoor event with plenty of space to social distance and follow state rules. Organizers say that Petra Church and the local town are in support of the Bash. 

Vendors will be allowed in Thursday afternoon (March 18) and Friday morning. On Friday at noon, the event will open to the public. Contestants will be bringing their rigs in and parking at this time as well. Crowd judging of the rigs will take place at 4 p.m. The rigs will be divided into three classes: semi-truck complete rig, pickup truck complete rig, and pilot car. 

A banquet meal for all sponsors and shed haulers will take place at 6 p.m. There will be a large tent with tables and chairs, and here will be a performance and some speeches, and there will be door prizes. There will be a performance and some speeches—possibly even a song or two. 

Following the banquet, there will be a light show by all contestants and a parade. Organizer estimate first-day events will finish around 10 p.m. 

On, Saturday, the gates will open to the public at 8 a.m. There will be a coffee truck and a doughnut truck on-premises with a barbecue truck on-premises for lunch. All food on Saturday is buy-your-own for attendees. 

At 10 a.m. the contests start. There will be timed contests in three categories: pickup truck and trailer, semi-truck and trailer, and mule only. Each contest will involve a contestant picking up a shed and moving it through a series of obstacles before placing it within markers in its final place. The quickest three times will win cash prizes. 

After these contests, there will be a final contest with three contestants from 1-3 p.m. Each contestant will complete a delivery facing unknown difficulties and will deal with an actual customer to interact with. These will be judged by a panel of judges and will be graded on a variety of fronts including professionalism, rig appearance, personal appearance, time, courtesy, etc. Each of the three contestants will receive a cash prize. 

After the contests, a Brotherhood Truck, a semi-truck built by Mervin Vargas, will be given away at the end of the day. 

Organizers say that actual times may vary slightly as events take place.
