Nobody likes to show off their tractor driving skills more than FFA members! On September 11th, five members from the Nashville FFA Chapter did exactly that when they went to West Frankfort to participate in the Tractor Driving CDE.
This contest consists of two components: a written test and a skills course. During the written test portion, members answered questions on basic tractor operation and safety.
In the second component, members had to drive a tractor through a course while pulling a trailer and practice their backing skills while backing into a simulated shed.
The Nashville FFA Chapter placed 2nd at the Section 21 competition with Zach Williamson as the 3rd high individual and Kyle Lamczyk was the 6th high individual. Andrew Holle, John Kwiatkowski and Cole Herrmann also participated.
