I'm considering going to the Gravely mow-in in Delaware the following weekend. The pictures of past ones showed a lot of stuff to look at/trade/buy. I'd like to tow down a trailer of my Gravely stuff and bring back a trailer of other peoples Gravely stuff:thThumbsU . Is anyone else planning on attending? Has anyone here been to past ones? I've included a link to the site:

Is that Conn. next year? This years would be a little under 4 hours for me. I've actually made that run many times. It's not bad, I just wish it were Sat. and Sun.

I haven't been to one since Mansfield OH - and missed the one in Indiana a couple years back. They always seem to be held so far East of where I'm at - other than the Brillion WI one a few years back. Hope everyone that goes has a great time! Hopefully y'all bought tickets for that nice raffle tractor giveaway...........

That is one sweet looking machine (raffle tractor) - almost too nice to do any work with! I think a guy named Shawn Kohlbus has been responsible for the raffle tractor for the last couple of years. I threw a few dollars in the hat as well, as I'm certain dozens of other people did.

It's actually a guy named Brian Jennings that's been working on the Mow-In raffle tractors for the last few years - he's done a nice job with each one. I see that Ron Camareta has posted some Mow-In pics on his "gravely yard" website, but I haven't seen any others yet. I know that the raffle tractor drawing was suppose to be around 2PM today (Sat) - and I didn't get a call at home - darn.........................

I went to the one in Rhinebeck back in 03. Had a good time there. Lots of cool odd ball stuff I have not seen before. [got a chance to see one of those Gravely engines with the overhead valves on it.. real cool setup!!!]

May try to make it to next years one. thats not to far away for me.

Strange to see a "Late Model" tractor as the raffle!. You can tell how old a company is, when a tractor that old is called a "Late Model" :D :D
