Tuggers begin to register on each side of the Gulf of Eastport by signing the waiver and providing their $20 entry fee, unless the sponsors of their teams have already paid their fees. (If you are on a sponsored team, you'll know.) Then tuggers each receive an official, Tug of War shirt. It's a badge of honor. Wear it proudly.
