Update: The event took place rain free and over 500 people attended. Wow!  Thank you for all your hard work. Not only did we have an awesome lunch with many instant winners, but also a huge winner. The $24,000 Meridian built hopper bottom bin winner. A draw was made Wednesday morning live on the air and David Neudorf of Edwin was the lucky winner. Congratulations David and again, thanks to all of our partners (listed below), the Manitoba Ag Museum Staff and everyone who attended the event.
