History / Biographical
The International Plowing Match (IPM) is one of two events organized by the Ontario Plowmen’s Association (OPA), which itself was founded in 1911 in Richmond Hill, Ontario. The IPM is the largest outdoor agricultural expo in North America, with the first being successfully run in 1913 on Sunnybrook farm in Toronto. Each IPM takes several years of planning, meaning that there is quite a range of dates for the records for each IPM held. The 2010 IPM held in St. Thomas was celebrating the 99th year of the OPA.
In terms of administrative structure the IPM has several committees; there are several IPM committee chairs and three vice-chairs of the organization. There is also an organizational committee which plans the event. Above this sits the OPA’s Board of Directors, who oversee the entire project. The chairperson for the 2010 IPM was Duncan McPhail, while the current president of the OPA is David Murray.
The IPM takes place yearly, and is held on the personal property of a farmer. The fields are turned into a functioning town, featuring around 600 vendors of various types, with thousands arriving and staying multiple days. In the case of the IPM of 2010, the event took place on the farms of Ray Reid and Jason White of St. Thomas.
It is also an international event, with many competitors coming from across Canada, the United States, and the rest of the world.
Custodial History
The fonds also included a volunteer uniform which was transferred to the Elgin County Museum.
Scope and Content
The fonds contains the records of the 2010 IPM that took place in St. Thomas. The fond contains minutes, financial records, and other materials used by the organizers to set up the event and run it smoothly. The fonds also contains the final reports regarding the event. Finally, the fonds contains the advertisements, photographs, and other materials used to promote the 2010 IPM, as well as news clippings from before, during, and after the event.
This fonds is arranged into the following series:
1. Minutes series

Former Site of Old Boys' Reunion, likely in Aldborough Township, ca. 1900. Photograph was taken by Carl Wray. Published in the West Lorne Sun on August 25, 1983, with the following caption: "Aldborough Old Boys' Picnic, about 1905, was held at the top of the hill leading down to the fisheries. At the extreme left is the old fish-houses and a concessionaire's tent. In the left-centre background is Haven's Barn and many carriages. Below, Rodney's band plays. At right is West Lorne Citizen's Band, a platform behine for speakers and hundreds milling around, men in three-piece wool suits and ladies in the shade of their umbrellas, proving it was a hot August day".

In September 2020, Chris Meredith commented: This isn't the old Lyndhurst bridge that was blown up to make way for the new entrance to St. Thomas. It's the old bridge on the old alignment of Wellington Road, between Lyndhurst and the new roundabout.
