Flooding Forces Postponement of New Hampton FFA Bob Svec Memorial Tractor Ride

The New Hampton FFA’s efforts to honor a former radio personality who passed away May 31st has hit a snag due to recent weather events.

With torrential rains August 27-28 flooding several rural Chickasaw County roads, organizers will delay the inaugural “Bob Svec Memorial Tractor Ride” from Sunday, September 19th, to sometime next spring. FFA member Quentin Reicks says they still plan to honor Svec, who was the morning show host on 95.1 The Bull, with a ride through the countryside.

Reicks saluted Svec as a huge supporter of the New Hampton FFA, which will return money for t-shirts already purchased, adding that a new order will be out later.

You can find further updates on the event by visiting the New Hampton FFA Facebook page
