Just curious. Me and a few of the old timers from here (that most aren't on here anymore) Hugh, Jeffrey, Matt, Jesse, Austin (maybe) and a few locals are meeting up like we do every year. Just curious if anyone else is making the trek.

Funny thing, been looking for 3 pt. plow for a long time to get ready, found one last month and picked it up, then buying another machine the guy tells me he has a Brinley 3pt. with guage wheel which are like hens teeth to find. So by this weekend willl have a 2nd 3pt. plow so one for each machine!

Where at in PA? I live in the Poconos, and now that I am retired, I have time to see and do stuff (poor health permitting).

This will be 13th annual PA PLOW DAY. Address for the event is 1820 River Rd. Watsontown,PA 17777.

Registration this year will be $20 (i believe) and is good for both days. Anyone operating anything with a motor either on the show grounds or in the field must register.

The show grounds will open Friday morning with plowing starting at 2 pm, weather permitting. Plowing will continue into the night stopping around 10 pm. Tractors plowing after dark must have lights front and rear.

Breakfast will be served Saturday morning at 8 am. ( I've always found the price very reasonable and the food is good. ) Plowing will start at 9 am and continue until folks head home.

There is a facebook group called PA Plow Day Social Group

Join the club- all the ones I want to bring need maintenance. Some only oil changes, some need trans swaps.

I gotta write the date down so I don't forget it. Mapquest says I'm 1 1/2 hours away which is doable. I'm not sure my tractor is up to plowing, and I'm not sure I am either, but I'll drive that far just to watch. When I say the tractor may not be up to it, it is more my reluctance to remove the mower deck and installing the plow and chains on my turf tires, only to have to switch it back right away. Makes me tired just thinking about it.

That only takes about 10 minutes. It is the 10 hour drive one way, if I could fine a plow day within 1.5 hours it would not be an issue.

We have had them come up from Virginia, down from Maine, over from New Jersey and from Canada too to join the fun!

You would be around tons of folks who know how to set up a plow properly. They helped me the first year I went! I understand though, if this year isn't the right year then set your sites on next year. Work out the kinks this year!

Yes I want to change the way the plow is mounted and replace the frame. I am tired of straitening bent parts and the flex this frame configuration has.
