Last year a local <font color="0000ff">FFA</font> alumni-group put on a "1st Annual Plow-Day" as a fundraiser for their scholarship program. A few of us forum members attended last year's event. It was a smaller PD, but very well organized and highly successful.

This year they are planning another Plow-Day on Saturday, April 23, with more acreage and hopefully more tractors.

The location for this event is just south of Osceola, WI which is about an hour North-East of Mpls/St. Paul, MN.

Here is the flyer they are distributing for this event.

As you'll notice, there is a $10 "donation" for all participants. This money goes toward a scholarship fund that is set up for the current HS FFA kids.

I am not part of the planning committee for this event, but please feel free to contact me if you would like any further info. For those of you coming from the south, the best way to Google your directions would be to search "Somerset, WI" then follow the directions on the flyer to the event-site.

Art, Is the soil sandy there to clean up a plow, or black heavy? I would guess sandy.

Andy-
I've never plowed at this site, but I would agree that it's probably sandy.

Here is a word of warning to anyone planning on coming to this event. I stopped by the site today to check things out. It's a nice piece of land, but this ground is former corn-ground. It's relatively "clean" from a corn-trash perspective, but I thought I'd mention it in advance.

The kids are thinking about disking it prior to next weekend, but I'm not sure when they're going to do that. I think they're meeting out at the site on Friday, so I'll keep everyone posted here if I hear anymore info...

I really don't anticipate the corn situation being a HUGE problem, but I thought I would mention it. Start loading up the trailers!!!!

Art, thanks for the update. I plan on being there with K4K. My daughter will be with as well, I'm afraid that after plowing her first time

she is going to claim K4K as hers.

Though she might not be strong enough to lift the plow out of the ground.

Kraig-
If your daughter claims "K4K" as "hers", does that mean a "<font color="ff0000">C</font>E<font color="0000ff">R</font><font color="ff0000">T</font>A<font color="0000ff">I</font><font color="ff0000">N</font> L<font color="0000ff">A</font><font color="ff0000">W</font>N <font color="0000ff">T</font><font color="ff0000">R</font>A<font color="0000ff">C</font><font color="ff0000">T</font>O<font color="0000ff">R</font>" will soon be going up for sale???

Art, ummm, no the SO76 will not be going up for sale. She can claim K4K all she wants but it's still mine. Thanks, I got lucky with that photo.

Tom, if you want a photo of the SO76 here's one if it. It doesn't have the correct seat and it has a non-correct replacement engine and the PO notched the hood to fit the engine.

UPDATE: We got less than 1" of snow early this morning. I don't see that affecting this event much at all. We're supposed to get some rain showers on Friday, so provided those don't turn into an all-day-downpour, things should be good. The soil in this part of the state is usually pretty sandy.

Kyler-
I don't think there is going to be any swapping going on this year.....Unless you're planning on showing up with a trailer full of goodies for us to scrounge through, or have a pre-arranged sale set up.

Art, any update on the field condition? (Yes, I know I only live a few miles away from the site and could easily check myself...) We had rain last night and the forecast is for more today and at least some rain Saturday morning.

<font size="-2">Honestly, I have about as much info as you have. I plan on loading up today, then checking the weather radar tomorrow morning. I think we're all going to have to make our own judgement call before heading out in the morning.</font>

I won't be making it to this PD. It rained off and on all night. It's quite wet at my property and I'm only a few miles away. Seeing that the field was corn I'm guessing that it's going to be quite muddy.
