I will be there next weekend, however I will be in incognito so to speak, as I won't be plowing with a John Deere.  :(  Goes against my grain, and will put a big dent in my reputation driving a different colored tractor, however the father and son time spent between my son Caleb, myself, and my father will be worth it. I will be plowing with one of my Dad's tractors, a Speedex S-24, and have never driven the tractor before. Should be quite the adventure I'm sure. Hope to see a lot of old Friends there, as well as looking forward to meeting new Friends. Heed the warning though, don't harass me about the tractor I'm driving! I'm putting my pride aside and swallowing hard, as I'll do whatever it takes to have quality time with Family, even if it means giving up the luxury of driving a Deere.  :thumbs:

One week from plowing lam 90 miles north in Tioga PA and at 11:30 am 3" of snow and still coming down. What plow should I bring LOL See you all in a week.

We had about 3" by noon and it's all gone already.  I think a moldboard plow will be in order.   :D

Strap them down and load another in the truck and I'm ready.  Won't be plowing at night,  but should be there Friday evening.

I'm still coming, but the plans have changed.
Ryan is attending Skills USA state level competition. They won't be getting back in time to go with us, and even if they do, he will have spent 6 hours in a van just to turn around and ride for 5 more... He said no thanks. :D

KK and I are coming, BUT a sudden reschedule of a make up softball game (don't get me started) will cause us to not leave until 7 pm Friday from an hour further North. It will be her first start as Varsity, so I can't make her miss.

Looking at a 2am arrival.
Sorry if we wake anyone up.

I'm planning on coming from NC with Vince_O from SC. Still trying to talk our buddy Todd from GA to come too! Looks like Gator from GA with his Case tractors will be coming as well!!

Wow, Vince O maybe there ! Can't even remember the last time he was in PA ! But alas I have a family fishing derby that weekend so even though this sounds like the place to be, I'll be going the other direction. You ALL have a great time and I'll see about next year.

George and I won't be at the Plow Day Friday but hope to arrive early Saturday morning. Looking forward to once again seeing the many friends we have made the last several years. We hope to set up our tent close to registration and have the GTTalk banner for the members to sign. I know many of you will have already registered but there will be a meeting before plowing starts so please take the time to stop by and say hello. Weather so far looks great so we'll see you there.

Anyone that's never been to this before won't be disappointed.  The plowing should be AWESOME tomorrow!  There was some rye we plowed in today, it wasn't great but was doable.  They were going to start plowing a soybean field tonight but there should be lots of bean stubble to plow tomorrow.  The bean ground will be nice going.  Get ready guys, it will be a good one.
