I look forward to seeing you Pete, entries are now coming in, i went round dorset on Wed lots of interest there and handed out entry forms we have got Tom Brassil coming up from southampton demonstrating his Simar 56A with plough aparently there are very few of these ploughs in the country and he does do a good job,if anyone just want to plough and not be judged thats fine we have an area for that i am looking for a good range of horticultural tractors ploughing, as we are hoping to have a profesional video maker present to record the event and produce a dvd of the day so if you want to be a film star now is your chance.

If you can see the Black Mountains it's going to rain, if you can't it's already raining!

Just a note to say spectators are welcome no charge for this,all we be welcome, however we are running a raffle in aid of parkinsons as the Farmers wife suffers from the condition, it would be nice to have your support, either by buying a ticket or bringing a prize along,

David that is correct there will be spare plots so if you want to come along and have a go and not be judged you will be most welcome, but i would like to know if you are coming along so that we can lay the field out to suit who is ploughing in the match and who is demonstrating/playing we are as i may have  previously mentioned raising money for Parkinsons as the farmers wife suffers from the condition and as its he is allowing us to use his land i consider thats the least we can do, so a donation of the entry fee would be very much apreciated and will not go into the match prize fund,
 Will it be the Garner or the trusty, we have 14+ Trusies at the moment and 6 Ransomes MG + Anzai and others curently 25+ in total that should be a good day,
It is a free draining site so lets hope the Weather sorts itself out by Sat19th.
