Folks this is a really nice day.  The people are great, the host family is wonderful and the plowing is very good.  I can't think of a better way to spend the day.  I look forward to this one every year.  I hope to bring a show tractor along with my plowing rig this year.  Maybe put it in the "guess what it is" spot unless Jeff came up with another one.

I have had this event marked on my desk calendar quite awhile. My son George ( NUTNDUN ) and I have attended this plow day several times since meeting Alan ( MH81 ) and Steve ( Caseguy ) who are members of the club at the PA PLOW DAY a few years back. One year  my late wife Linda and I  went to the club's  Plow Day , just in our car to get pictures for the website and enjoy the lunch for which she  made macaroni salad that I had taken to previous Plow Days. Not having brought a tractor to plow with, Alan generously left me plow with his big Massey. It brought back memories of plowing at the small farm my Dad bought  many years ago.Hopefully we can make this year's  Plow Day. It's about a 260 mile drive from our place, but well worth the drive to see some great folks.

Grand, did you have any trouble with that rotten trip rope Alan rigged the plows with? I was instructed to "Give the trip rope a good yank, not a love tug, that won't do." A few rope repairs later and my new instructions were given to me as, "Do not yank the rope, give it a love tug, that should work... Just don't break the rope again, I do not have another." :poke:

(Ps: I will be in attendance this year)

Alan, we plowed at the Bell farm last year so it is a little closer for us. I was quite surprised to see Jeff and his wife last weekend at a tractor show in Lebanon,PA .

 

Casey, I was lucky and didn't have any mishaps with the rope. You must have removed all of the bad spots by the time I plowed.

Hello Alan,
Once again our plow day falls on the same day.
I wish we could coordinate our schedules so that we can attend both events.
Maybe we can discuss this before we do our calendars. It would be nice to add a day of plowing.

Mike

I hear you. I always enjoyed going down there and getting back to back weekends of furrow making.
Mike, it looks like the hosts of our relocated event feels his ground will be best on the first weekend in May. I spoke with them a year ago and at that time, they were looking at other options, but historically, the weekend before they are still pretty wet most years and what a difference a week makes.

Someone pointed out that I forgot to mention our events aren't just for adults, they're kid friendly.
Ages 12 and up can participate. We ask that the younger or inexperienced participants operate with adult supervision.

Define "adult"... Is this an age thing or do you have to pass a test? :poke:
