A unique development for Bruce County happened at the Ontario Plowing Championships held in Finch Ontario last September (part of the International Plowing Match). Tom Evans of Tiverton was awarded the Overall Championship Plowman for the highest points achieved (among a total of 140 competitors). This is a first for Bruce County, and with that win, Tom is now able to compete in the Senior Canadian Plowing Championships (Reversible Class) at Ottawa, in August 2016.
The Canadian Plowing Championship is hosted across Canada, and it is a real opportunity to be competing in our home province. If Tom wins at the Canadian Championship, he will represent Canada at the World Ploughing Championships in Kenya, December 2017.
The Bruce County Plowmen’s Association has formed TEAM BRUCE and is seeking sponsors and support to fund the transportation and expenses of our competitor representing Bruce County, and Ontario at Ottawa.
The winner at the Canadian Championship will represent Canada at the World Ploughing Championship in December 2017. A separate and more robust fundraising program will be necessary to support our competitor in that undertaking should it occur.
