History / Biographical
The International Plowing Match (IPM) is one of two events organized by the Ontario Plowmen’s Association (OPA), which itself was founded in 1911 in Richmond Hill, Ontario. The IPM is the largest outdoor agricultural expo in North America, with the first being successfully run in 1913 on Sunnybrook farm in Toronto. Each IPM takes several years of planning, meaning that there is quite a range of dates for the records for each IPM held. The 2010 IPM held in St. Thomas was celebrating the 99th year of the OPA.
In terms of administrative structure the IPM has several committees; there are several IPM committee chairs and three vice-chairs of the organization. There is also an organizational committee which plans the event. Above this sits the OPA’s Board of Directors, who oversee the entire project. The chairperson for the 2010 IPM was Duncan McPhail, while the current president of the OPA is David Murray.
The IPM takes place yearly, and is held on the personal property of a farmer. The fields are turned into a functioning town, featuring around 600 vendors of various types, with thousands arriving and staying multiple days. In the case of the IPM of 2010, the event took place on the farms of Ray Reid and Jason White of St. Thomas.
It is also an international event, with many competitors coming from across Canada, the United States, and the rest of the world.
Custodial History
The fonds also included a volunteer uniform which was transferred to the Elgin County Museum.
Scope and Content
