Gator Wars

Posted by Default Admin on 30 March 2023 | Comments

On Tuesday, March 21, 2023, Ballweg Implement in Waupun hosted the 1st Gator Wars Competition in Wisconsin. This mechanical diagnostic competition, Gator Wars, started in North Carolina 10 years ago when a small group of students were challenged to diagnose and repair a John Deere Gator that was “bugged. This idea became a regional and state competition with added mechanical activities. The competition allows students to build their mechanical skills by performing a variety of hands-on activities.

Ballweg Implement Matching Grant Challenge!

Posted by Default Admin on 4 January 2021 | Comments

Rock River Intermediate School Build Out Campaign Update!  Thank you to all who have donated!  While we have raised enough to begin to remodel, the fundraising continues!  Ballweg Implement generously issued a $15,000 matching grant and challenged the community to help raise the funds to get us started!  Tom and Joan Ballweg, along with their employees, stand behind this project which when completed will provide individual counseling areas and a larger group meeting area for use by health care professionals, students, and families. Initially it will be used for mental health and AODA counseling. With its location and secure outside entrance there is a confidential aspect most students and parents are more comfortable with.  Please consider a donation to help get this project completed for student and community use.
