I will post more later, but just wanted to say what a fantastic time we had today. The weather was great and we all had time to do some plowing. I would like to thank Alan (MH81) and Steve (Caseguy) for allowing us to be a part of their clubs plowday.
I was going to post last night but I was beat so I decided to just call it a night. We had a great time and want to thank Alan, Steve and their families and club for having us. Couldn't have asked for better weather and I think we all have the sunburn to prove it LOL.
It was great seeing you guys again. My wife finally has faces to put with some name too!
The Bush Hog and the 800 both did really well. The bugs are definitely out of the Bolen's belts and in about 45 seconds, George had the carb adjusted.
Everyones tractor did well, and the little snags were just that, little.
Thanks again to everyone who came!
BTW: Heads up for anyone who is interested, next years Summer Show will be featuring Garden Tractors and Orphans. Our second feature will be Hand Forged related items and equipment.

On to the pictures!
Aside from a few mechanical glitches here and there, the day was a great success! Dirt was turned, fuel was spent, and (I believe) fun was had by all!
I would never have believed that I would meet such great people and make fast friends of them from an online forum! Many, many thanks to George for seeing the need for this forum and fulfilling it!

I enjoyed plowing with the Caterpillar more than the Case because it was well, more fun and less pita lol. I had fun despite all the issues I had and was glad to see that every1 was struggling some, and not just me lol. I knew going in I was going to struggle because the Caterpillar had been "done" less than 24 hours before I sank the plow into the ground lol. Then, I had never used the Case 444 for "work" until yesterday, so had no idea it wasn't running in its full powerband. Then of course the one that wasn't broken at all.... lost the brake drum, which I later found somehow, thankfully. All in all it was worth the trouble, and I did get a green shirt despite George trying to pawn a pink one off on me lol.
Can't wait to meet up with all of you later this year at other events. Thanks for entertaining us all Alan. Put in a big thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Alsdorf for all of us.

I am uploading the video as I type this and will post it once it is finished. I am surprised I didn't take more photos and videos. I must have been too busy just being around friends and having a good time I forgot about taking more videos and pics. We at least got some video which will show some of the action.
