They are having a tractor show in Morgantown KY on Oct 22 and 23 2010.

I have never been to this show, and I am thinking of going (just as a spectator).

They advertise awards for garden tractors. But the pictures of last years show only had a few in the background. (Lots of pics of big tractors)

I was wondering if any one had been there before, and could tell me more about it..

I would love too, but I milk both morning & night both Friday & Saturday. Not enough time in-between milkings to do the trip.

We would love to have you all join us. Yes there wil be a 1st 2nd and 3rd place viewer's choice award for lawn/garden tractors. 1st place is an 8x10 plaque shown below. 2nd and 3rd place are trophies. Last year most of them were scattered about, but I think there were about 15 or so. This year, we are keeping them all together in one area. We have a group from Owensboro that brings several and camp out. The calls are rolling in, so it should be a good show. If you have any type of games you like to play on lawn tractors, let me know and I will see what I can do.

Thank you for the welcome. I tend to be on forums for the larger tractors, but I do love the Deere lawn tractors also. One of my future plans is to buy a JD 110l to restore to go along with my larger ones. I currently mow the yard with a Kubota B7500 and 60" woods finish mower, but I am thinking about buying a JD LX 54" cut rider instead. The Kubota is just a little too large for my new yard. My old yard was 5 acres.

I forgot to add about the show. Admission and parking is free. All exhibitors will receive a 2x3 dash plaque like the award photo above and receive 2 free meal tickets for BBQ on Saturday.

johndeerefan :wave: Welcome to the forum! We're glad to have you. Would love to make it to the show, but it's a long way from Western PA LOL! One day when I retire, the wife and I want to tour the country from tractor show to tractor show. Maybe then we'll get there!

The distance and too much other stuff on my plate keeps me away. Sounds like a great show and how can anyone pass up tractors and a free bbq?

Thanks for the help guys. We already have about 5-6 lawn tractors and some food vendors at the showgrounds for this weekends' show. Looks like it is going to be a large turnout and the weather is going to be really really nice. I am getting several calls from 4 different states wanting directions.

I am sure some of you are wanting to know how the show went. Overall, it was a huge success with a large crowd. We had 111 large tractors, 20 engines, 15 lawn tractors, and 30 other items registered. There were several items that weren't registered though.

We had a bush hog brand lawn tractor and a custom built mini Farmall 460 built on a case lawn tractor frame. He also had scaled down implements custom made (disc, chisel plow, hay wagon, and a 4 bottom plow). Both of these are going to be featured in some lawn and garden magazine in the near future.

You can visit our website at the end of this week to see all the show pics. I have about 400 pictures to go through.

Here is a sneak peak of the Farmall 460 and a few of the scale implements. You can see 2 of my babies behind the scale model (my John Deere A with the sign in front and the John Deere 520 directly behind the scale tractor).
