“Bob Svec Memorial Tractor Ride” Gets Official Approval

The inaugural “Bob Svec Memorial Tractor Ride” is now officially set to trek throughout Chickasaw County June 12th.

Quentin Reicks with the New Hampton Chapter of FFA says the ride will honor former 95.1 The Bull morning show host and avid FFA supporter, Bob Svec, who passed away almost a year ago.

At Monday night’s school board meeting, FFA advisor James Russ asked the board to officially approve the event, with proceeds going back to the FFA, per the Svec family’s wishes.

Russ added that funds could also be used towards the pedal-pull tractor events. As for the real farm tractors on the memorial ride, Russ says they’ll take a leisurely route throughout the county.

The tractor ride was originally planned for last September, but due to flooding in late August, organizers postponed it to allow county maintenance crews to concentrate on repairing roads damaged by the floods. 

Registration for the tractor ride is open and more details can be found on the New Hampton FFA Chapter Facebook page.
