Southwest FFA Trip to Indianapolis
The Southwest FFA Chapter left Tuesday, October 18th
at 6:00 PM with 25 of its members for the National FFA
Convention in Indianapolis, IN. Traveling through the night
on its school charter, the Chapter awoke on Wednesday just
of the outskirts of Indianapolis for breakfast. A tour of the
Indianapolis Motor Speedway was first on the agenda for the
Chapter. Members took a lap around the speedway, kissed the
bricks on the finish line, and toured the museum.
Wednesday evening was spent by attending the opening
session of the 89th National FFA Convention. Over 62,000
members from across the country attended the convention
and expo. Southwest FFA members enjoyed the opening
session before walking to Lucas Oil Stadium for the music
concert performed by Cole Swindell and Chris Young.
Thursday brought the opportunity to attend the FFA
Convention and Expo. Several members enjoyed the large
expo and FFA shopping mall. Many colleges from across the
country along with agribusinesses had displays and expos for
the chapter to explore. The chapter relaxed at the hotel pool
for the evening after a long day of walking at the expo.
Friday brought a trip to the Indianapolis Zoo in the
morning. The Dolphin Show and the ability to touch a shark
highlighted the zoo trip. Following attending the convention
again in the afternoon, the chapter ended its trip with a trip to
the World’s Toughest Zoo at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
With an early Saturday departure the chapter returned to
home by 10:00 PM that night.
The chapter would like to thank Matt Springer and Mark
Hayes for driving the trip to the Convention; The Bartley
State Bank for donating bottled waters to drink along the way;
and the Southwest Public Schools for allowing the chapter to
attend.
