The first stop they made was in Moline, Illinois, at the John Deere Pavilion, where they toured the facilities and took a look at different models of John Deere machinery. The group later stopped at Lock and Dam #15. The students stopped just in time to see a barge passing through the locks.
The first convention activity was attending the opening ceremonies and Career Show.
The career show involved talking to agriculture - based colleges, collecting free stuff, and talking to Ag business representatives and supporters. The second night the group were lucky enough to attend a Lady Antebellum Concert with Easton Corbin opening. Now those are some great country singers.
The next day the students took a tour of the Indianapolis Speedway and the NCAA Hall of Champions. It was very interesting seeing all the exhibits on college athletes who later on went into either a major line of work or played their sport professionally.
The trip was a great experience, and everyone involved is very glad that The Ridge View chapter made it possible to have such a great experience.
