The 13thannual Showdown in Curdtown hosted by the Ellsworth, WI FFA Alumni kicked off the 2019 NTPA Region III season on Saturday, June 8th, 2019 at 6:30 PM. There were over 80 tractors coming from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Nebraska to begin competing for the 2019 NTPA Region III titles. At the end of the season, the Region III class champions will have the opportunity to compete at the 33rd Enderle Pull-Off. For more information about qualifying for the Enderle Pull-Off click here.
The event not only kicked-off the 2019 Region III season, it also was the annual fundraiser for the Ellsworth FFA Alumni. The Ellsworth FFA Alumni uses the proceeds from this pull to aid the Ellsworth FFA Chapter, such as supporting members who are attending leadership activities. The Ellsworth FFA does many community service projects, such as cleaning road ditches, running a free pedal tractor pull for kids during the Cheese Curd Festival, and much more. WTPA is proud to be a supporter of the Ellsworth FFA Alumni.
