Bruce County Plowmen bring home awards from the recent International Plowing Match in Wellington County. Scott Thomas of Elmwood and Tom Evans of Tiverton, last year's top overall competitors in horse and tractor plowing; were awarded the reserve championships in their classes this year. Scott narrowly missed on a repeat horse title coming in second on a tiebreaker, having tied the champion on points. Tom will once again compete at the Canadian Championship next year having come in second in the Ontario class for reversible plowing. Meanwhile, in the Junior plowing competition on Saturday, Trent Ferris of Glammis won his class and was placed 3rd overall on the day. This is the first time that a Bruce County Junior made it into the top 3.
