Bump

Well, I Got to visit Jeff for a few minutes yesterday.
Looks like he is moving us to a different section. It's longer runs and will work well, IMHO.
It's a section he hasn't had the GT's on before.
He said there were a couple of small rocks once I a while, but it stays a little dryer there too. H knows we've hit some greasy spots before and wants to maximize the GT enjoyment.

He's already working in the snow, trying to prep

Alan, did you mention to Jeff how fun plowing with a New Holland GT is? :D
Greasy? I never noticed with my Farmall Cub... Well, I was the only guy plowing at times, only one other tractor could keep up traction wise at times, being the Beaver. This year will be the first year I am not taking the Cub to the Bell farm. I am excited about nice long runs in the dirt though.

In the home stretch now.
Last work session at Jeffs house is this Sunday for some field prep, etc.
Then the countdown clock begins

Can't wait.  Still plan to bring a plow tractor AND a show tractor this time.  Things are swirling around threatening to make me have to cancel but I will fight on.  I've already lost the following weekend, I won't lose this one if I can help it!

The old field had some high places that could be plowed even though it rained earlier in the week.Is the old field going to be an option in case the new field is to muddy?

Casey, I hope you found a decent motel by now. Having come to the plow day and show from a different direction I have no knowledge of motels in the Grove City area. I did get curious and checked a few listings online. Some of them have prices that jump dramatically on the weekend. ( Shame on them. ) Some maintain the same prices even on weekends but again I can't recommend any based on experience. Hope you have a good time at the French Creek Plow Day and Show.

Sorry, I missed this one.
The new field is higher so it should be good.
May be a couple of wet spots, could have some rocks, but it looks like a nice field

Still on my calendar, nothing that plows running, so may just drive up to see whats happening and shoot a little breeze. Hoping weather clears, not so good around here.

A couple weeks ago when I was down at Jeff's, we discussed parking arrangements.
The last I heard was we will be following the red route and parking at the Red box. The yellow box is where we parked last year.

This is of course conditions Dependent. Best I can tell anyone is ask when you get there, just to be sure.
If anyone has trouble finding the place, call the number on the poster.

Wow, What a day.

Beautiful Weather, Old and new friends, Great plowing conditions, and some really cool tractors.

 

The Bells outdid themselves again and the club's Thresherman's lunch left no one hungry.

 

We are home, tired, and a little dirty... but it's the good kind of tired and dirty. :D

 

To those who made it, please let us all know when you get home.

 

Here is a link to the slide show of the pics I took today.

http://gardentractor...show/album-898/

and a direct link to the album

http://gardentractor...cvaec-plow-day/

 

Let's see if anyone can spot why Casey's Toro Plow wasn't plowing as well as his New Holland :poke:

 

there were more pics of the Speedex, but they didn't come out and there was a late arrival in the form of a 982 IH that I didn't have my camera for.  If anyone has pics of these two, please let me know

I've been home and unloaded for a while now.  What a great day!  I always look forward to this group.  Weather was wonderful and the dirt was first rate.  Sure, there was a rock here and there that Alan swears didn't exist but they really weren't too much of an issue because the dirt was just perfect for plowing.  I like that upper field.  Good seeing everyone again and great job with the pics Alan. My heart felt thanks to the Bell family for hosting and putting up with us again.  Great job!  Have a great summer!
