I was going to try and get a room for Thursday night as well and leave from work Thursday. I just couldn't do it that way this year. Just going to leave extra early on Friday morning.

I intend to be there around noon on Friday. Still forecasting 50s and showers, but it is still a week away.

B.S. session sounds like a good idea to me.  I got quite a few people to catch up with from here and from over at the Cub website as well.

As a common rule, anyone with a larger machine PLEASE plow slower and take smaller cuts.  Its not fun following a JD 430 going 20mph and cutting 2' deep when you are on a little gear drive Sears Custom.  There is more to plowing than going as fast as you can, and throwing the dirt as far as you can.  Its just rude to those that are following you, as you are just making a mess and making plowing less fun for others.  Thanks.

It was funny last year watching one guy on a big JD who would just sit and let a big gap develop in front of him, then go racing up the field as fast as he could.  He was clearly annoyed at having to wait for others and it almost looked like he was trying to intimidate the people in front of him into going faster.

I wont be, but I can see some older people needing some pain-killers for their sore backs...  I nearly flipped the Custom in some of the furrows I was following!

Seems like some of those guys on the bigger John Deeres do it just for spite.  I'm sure thats not the case but sometimes it just seems like it.  I got a good laugh last year on friday afternoon.  I was plowing on my 107 with a JD 318 in front of me with a 12" 3pt plow on his machine.  We were in the field across the road from the market when his tractor stopped.  I noticed that both wheels were spinning and he had high centered on his transmission.  Lucky for him I carry a small chain under the seat of the 107.  I picked up my plow and went around him and hooked up to him and pulled him out.  I wish someone would have been there with a camera to catch that on film.  The lowly 10hp Cub pulling out the big 18hp JD.  Guy was super polite about it and thanked me.  Just made me chuckle as I was having no problems following his bigger 12" plow that was cutting pretty deep.
