Ok guys, October 27th 2012 will be the 1st annual Ball Hollow/GTTalk Plow Day! November 3rd will be the rain date.
To help cover costs, I will have a donation jar, but no donation required, and also everyone will need to sign a waiver of liability (std practice). I also hope to get some sponsors so I can also have some door prizes.
I will have at least 45 acres, more available if needed. Level to rolling land. This will be ground where we chopped off this year's corn silage, and I will try to bush hog down the stubble stalks as close as possible if time permits.
This will be my 1st ever plow day to have put on, so it will be a learning experience, and hopefully will get better each successive year. Hope many of you can come, so mark it on your calendar!
Address is 1650 Ball Hollow Road, Hodgenville, Ky 42748 (Behind my Son's home) You can reach me by cell phone at two 7 zero-4 nine 1-0 four 7 eight.
Please, no alcohol allowed for safety's sake.

Garden tractors, "sub" compacts, & walk behinds welcome. Please, no full size tractors. You are welcome to bring items for show or sale, but there is no formal show or swap/sell meet.

Single day event this year. Registration will begin at 7:30 to 8 am, with plowing lasting as long as there is light. I have not finalized plans concerning lunch, so please look for updates.

If you make plans to attend, please reply to this post and I will add you to the list below:

You are 683 miles away from me, Oct 27 is a long time from now and I'm going to try to get there, but no promises.

Perhaps some of us Michiganders can car pool? If you are interested send me a PM.

Hey! I'm only 1714 miles from you! That's a bit too far I'm afraid. Sounds like fun. Take lots of pics!

I sure hope you 2 can make it! I'd love to see the HD-12 in person, but if too much to haul, I'll have you & Grand a tractor & plow each to use!

I have talked to George several times about attending. The distance and the price of gas are of course a big concern, especially if we were to bring tractors. We would be glad to attend without having a tractor to plow with considering how much you have brought to the site. Thank you for your generous offer of plowing tractors. My wife and I went to a plow day yesterday without a tractor and I ended up plowing with a big tractor, something I haven't done for more than 30 years. To me it is more about sharing the friendship than actual seat time when it comes to these events.Daniel, I am looking forward to meeting you in June at the show in Evansville.Your plow day in October will be the icing on the cake.

Daniel, You know I'm in if I can get away from work. I have it marked on my calendar.

The roads from I-65 to Daniel's are great roads and if I can find his farm, anyone can.

I also would take a few with me if we can make arrangements, Kenny, Dale, Ronnie.....

Dan , I won't say it too loud but I might be able to make it . Me and the boss ( Cindy ) talked and the idea went well . I still have family a little north of you. I can't bring anything but curiosity . Fred

444 miles is a long way but I would love to put another notch in the belt on different states Ive plowed in. Hopefully we can work something out. The only bad thing is that this conflicts with the plow day at Mayfield Dairy in Athens TN. This is their 3rd annual. I was able to make it to the 1st, and last years got rained out. If things work out though, Id love to come and be a part of the 1st annual Ball Hollow Plow Day. Good luck with coordinating it.

Whats the soil like up there?
