Well tomorrow the 5 day show starts, there are a lot of tractors and engines down there and more will show up in the next couple days. Over 800 gas engines, close to 1000 tractors, almost 100 steam engines. 3 years ago they started to let garden tractors in and the first year there was just a handful, I counted 115 GT's tonight and still growing. The weather sounds great so it should be a fine show.

So who is in charge of the GT section? Did they lump it in with the gas tractor guys? I can remember when they wouldnt let anything in that was newer than 1939.

Yes it is with the gas tractor guys. Harold Sammons is in charge of it. He is the one with all the Panzers.

Here are a couple shots from 2009 I didn't know if I would get to take these this year as a lot of things got canceled due to the rain. These are steam engines putting on a spark show at night. These same sparks happen in the day time when they are under a load you just don't see them. This is why there were so many fires at threshing time. Sparks, dry straw, poof!
