Thomas, if we both show up, perhaps we can coordinate a cub express North to South run if folks need stuff moved. I will be at stonethrow in GA the weekend of the 4th.

Hey Neighbor Dale & Thomas...That's GREAT NEWS ! In terms of plowin'...we've got one field that's a little over 10 acres, and MORE available if necessary. The Mayfield folks have been wonderful hosts over the past years, and their family farm is one of the oldest operating farms in Tennessee (since 1820) ! Certainly with all the activities for the kids, it's a real family event. Major chain hotels are within 5 miles of the farm (on Exit 49) I-75 in Athens, TN...and there's an RV campground The Overniter within 3 miles at (Exit 52), that has given event goers a 10% discount off their rates if you tell them you're attending the show. http://www.overniterrvpark.com :wink: ...'Country' Elliott

I plan on using my #152 disc plow (YES Dale...I'm finally gonna drop it in the ground :{_}: ) Puttin' on a plow day is chancy at best, because you're always at the mercy of the weather. In past years we've had BEAUTIFUL weather & RAINY-COLD weather. As we get closer to the 26th. I'll keep you boys posted on our local Athens, TN forecast. With money being as tight as it is & fuel costs being so high...I hate to see any of you travel any distance to be with us unless conditions are nearly IDEAL :D Of course, if you're not gonna plow...you're WELCOME to come by anyway and see the displays (or be a part of them) :wink: ...'Country'

I won't be able to bring a tractor with me unfortunately. I'll be able to attend one day only. Country, what day do you think would be the best day to attend?

Hey Thomas...
Generally Saturday is the best day of the two. Friday (with many folks still working) becomes a setup day (and of course the weather becomes the MAIN FACTOR) for folks coming from out of town. Are you planning to come with your family Thomas ? Are you needing a hotel room or a campground site ? ...'Country'

Thanks Country. I'll shoot for Saturday then. Darci's Mom lives in Cleveland. We'll be staying there. Darci and I will spend Friday with them and I'll be in Athens Saturday. Thanks!

Well Cubbies...I disc plowed about an acre with my Farmall Cub. The weather was BEAUTFUL, and the soil conditions were FANTASTIC...rich dark brown loamy soil that rolled of my disc plow
like butter. They had about 1500 school kids at Mayfield's today & they enjoyed watching me plow the field and seeing Roy & Albert's Hit & Miss Gas Engines. I'll look forward to meeting any of you
who show up tomorrow...whether you're there to plow or just shoot the breeze...'Country'
