National Farm Machinery Show Trip

In the Fall of each year, the Amanda-Clearcreek FFA chapter hold's it's annual Fall Fruit Sale. As an incentive, any member who sells 25 or more of any combination of fruit gift baskets or boxes of fruit has the opportunity to attend the National Farm Machinery Show and Tractor Pulls held annually in Louisville, Kentucky in February. Attending members leave on Friday morning and return on Sunday evening, attending the machinery show, the tractor pulls and enjoy Louisville's hospitality. Each year, Mr. Sharp, one of the chapter's two advisors, also plans an educational tour for the weekend in addition to the other activities. In past years, the chapter has visited the Louisville Slugger Plant, Churchhill Downs and the Dayton Airforce Museum. This is an excellent educational opportunity for the chapter's members and a great reward for those hard working fruit sellers.
