At the end of October, four Tomales FFA members had the opportunity to attend the 95th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana with over 65,000 other FFA members! Here is an account of their trip; On our trip to Indianapolis, we had a wonderful time from attending convention sessions, to the expo and tours, to boarding the air-porter at 3am to head home. We started our trip bright and early with the opening convention session where we heard our National Officers opening address, and listened to a keynote speaker reminding us to “be bold”. All of the sessions were held at the Lucas Oil Stadium, which is also the home to the Indianapolis Colts. After the opening session we walked to the convention center where the expo was held. There were many colleges and ag business booths that we got to explore and learn about, and collect lots of free swag. At the expo, we also got to shop at the FFA mega store and meet one of our favorite social media influencers. While all of us enjoyed spending our trip immersed in FFA, we also enjoyed eating some really good food and exploring the area around Indianapolis. During our trip we went to a few local restaurants recommended by other FFA chapters and tried some midwest staples like Cracker Barrel and Steak and Shake. We got to visit some of the popular attractions in the area and learn about the city of Indianapolis. One tour that we all really enjoyed was the Louisville Slugger Museum and factory in Louisville, Kentucky. On this tour we got to see first hand how Louisville Slugger baseball bats are made. We also toured Churchill Downs, and the Indianapolis Speedway. We ended our trip attending the closing convention session where we got to watch the new National Officer team be announced and installed. That night we were treated to a special dinner at what ended up being our favorite restaurant of the trip, Weber Grill. During our trip, Mrs. Murphy challenged us to find a member in their FFA jacket from all 50 states, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, and we found all but three! We had a great trip and made lots of memories. We would like to thank Mrs. Murphy for taking us and the Tomales Friends of Ag and our community for helping fund our trip. We are lucky to get to have experiences like these to look back on and learn from!
