UPDATED: Chore teams champion crowned

After two days of driving at Grain Millers Harvest Showdown

Round one of the Newton Landscaping Chore Team Competition was part of the opening day of the 31st annual Grain Millers Harvest Showdown.

The two-day event put teamsters and their teams through a series of chore related stations which are being judged by the tandem of Gary Clapman of Minitonas, MB., and Stephanie Lockhart of Yorkton.

The stations include passing through a closed gate, hooking up to a wagon, cutting a figure eight with the wagon, parallel parking the team and wagon, and backing into a docking area.

In addition to being scored by the two judges, the circuits were timed, which would be referred to if two teams tied on points.

Day one, first place went to Wayne Nagy with Bob and Doc, with second to Ken Shreiner with Ruby and Jewel. Third was captured by Michelle Newton with the team of Anne and Grace.

Things changed a little on day two. Wayne Nagy was again first, but this day second went to Langenburg driver Keith Neymier with Gravel and Surprise. Ken Shreiner took third.

The results from day one were added to those achieved Thursday afternoon to get an overall Harvest Showdown winner.

With back-to-back day wins Wayne Nagy was the overall event champion, Ken Shreiner runner-up.
