County of Renfrew Looking Into Possibility of Hosting International Plowing Match

The County of Renfrew is looking into the possibility of hosting another International Plowing Match. 

Alastair Baird the Economic Development Manager for the County says they are looking into the potential of hosting another IPM. It's all part of their economic goal of hosting special events such as conferences, sporting events, and trade and consumer shows. 

A Committee has been created to develop an outline, report and budget for the opportunity to host the IPM in 2021. The County previously held the event in 1994 and Baird adds they were only able to do that because of the huge amounts of volunteers that helped out. 

An information session was held recently which provided communities with information and guidance on what would be involved in hosting the event.
