Welcome to the
Northern Knights

    This prestigious and very attractive award, presented by Jim Franklin (left) is named after Phil Farmer (right) for his outstanding ability as a plower. The plaque reads as follows:  "Phil Farmer New Millennium Plowing Award for Best and Frequent crashes".  
    The Plow award is a GREAT Northern Knights honor to win.  It seems that the long lived Leo Award (not pictured) is being retired.  The Plow award will be presented monthly to only the most deserving Knight.  We will try and maintain a record here on the web site of the monthly recipient of the Plow award.  
    Do you have to be a Farmer to earn the Plow award?  The answer to that question remains to be seen.  
    The first recipient of the Plow award goes to Jim Forrester for a mid air and an uncontrollable flat spin in the same weekend.

A Quote from Charlie after crashing two planes in one day "I fly as much as all the rest of the club put together, it's going to happen!"  Note how many times Charlie has received the Plow award.  Might have to rename it the  "Schroeder Award"
