I have never been there and am just wondering about it. Is it a show worth driving 250 miles to? I use an enclosed trail and wonder if I can just sleep in it on site? Is there food and such for sale there? And anything else you can think of that I should know. The plowing competition has my interest as well. Any info would sure be welcome. You can even email me at blazer42@hotmail.com

Thanks

We have been at this show several times. It is only about a 10 mile drive from our current home. They had allowed camping on site and there were vendors with some tasty food on the show grounds. The plowing competition they did last year would send the winner onto the nationals. For additional info contact Bob Rentzel at 717-820-1044.
If your intersest is in just plowing, please google FCVAEC and you will find a plow event closer to home. We were at this event last year and had a great time. This is the link to the event:http://gardentractortalk.com/forums/topic/11879-15th-annual-fcvaec-nw-pa-plow-day/
What ever event you decide to attend, we hope to see you there.

On the main page of the Garden Tractor Events Forum are several events that have plow days. Some of the events listed may have plowing but you would have to check each listing to see if they mention plowing. Unfortunately the events on the first page of the events forum don't seem to be in your area. I hope you find a plowing event in your area.

Well if not I got a big one right in my own back yard, and plenty of tractors to plow with. I dont mind plowing alone.

I just wanted to remind everyone that the Little Guys Show in Mt. Wolf,PA is this Saturday and Sunday May 19th & 20th. Garden tilling competition is Saturday at 2 o'clock and the plowing competition is Sunday at 1 o'clock. ( This is an actual judged plowing competition and not a just for fun plowing event. ) Hope to see some of our members there. Here are some pics I took of the tractors that we are taking.Going to Little Guys Show 001.JPG Going to Little Guys Show 002.JPG

I just put some batteries in my camera so the date is incorrect.

We hauled our tractors to the show tonight and I was amazed at the number of folks already there. There are quite a few people that are camping at the show. Fortunately they will be blessed with some very good weather. So far it looks to be a very good show. I did see one license plate from NY and I remember talking to some folks last year from Virginia. Hope to see some of our members this weekend.
