We have decided to attend.  I've not used my plow much and may need some advice.  Looking forward to having some fun.  Rick

Well, in preparation for this event, I took one of the weights off the Gravely (split weights on the wheels). One weights 15 lbs, so that is 30 pounds per wheel. Add that to the 30+ lb. weights I already have on Alice and I'll have 60-65 lbs of weight per wheel. The Gravely weights will fit on the inside of the wheels just fine. I'm gearing up for this, Daniel!

I'll need to get my "Cat 0 10" plow dialed in also. My last trip to KY, Daniel had another area set up so we could 'dial' the plows in. Think this will be the same again!

It's looking like our attendance may be higher than ever this year!  I hope so, but either way, we'll all have fun!

I've been waiting for a good plow day fix, Daniel! This will be it! Steve may have to drag me off the tractor so he can plow!

With the list growing by the day I think you may need some name tags so we know who everybody is. Made my reservation today, should be in Thursday PM. Do you know when you will be setting up? Be glad to help if I know your schedule.

I should be at the field mid morning Friday.  Schedules here are hard to arrange.  Usually shoot from the hip on Friday.

  We do have sticky name tags.

If we get there Friday and do some plowing is the field safe to leave our stuff there over night?

Our initial plan is to leave Friday morning.It is a 6 hour or so drive according to Google.

In the past, there has never been any problems. Usually have some folks camp on site and Daniel's Dad and Mom live right there. I am planning on leaving trailer and tractors on site Friday night.

As Brian said, things should be safe. And I think at least one member will be camping there overnight.

My boy and I will be staying in the field overnight. I'll make sure he stays up all night to keep an eye on things. Haha.
