Like the college basketball tournament brackets, this is intended to be a fun, community exercise (without the gambling). Instead of filling out a complete bracket, this is a round-by-round selection process where you vote for your favorites…the things you use and enjoy the most…or perhaps those tools you only dream about having on your farm.
In its inaugural year, people were passionate about their favorites and were delighted when they advanced and disappointed when they lost. The tournament came down to a contest between Spreadsheets and Harvest Knife. At first it looked like Harvest Knife was sure to cut down the nets but the cool, calculating Spreadsheets came from behind and the game was tied at the end of regulation. Spreadsheets won in overtime by a single vote.
