Congratulations! And thanks for the pictures. Some nice tractors represented there. In a way, it's kind of sad to think that a lot of those nicely-restored tractors will probably never get to play in the dirt again.... you think? I really like those smaller JD's.

Yep, had a good day, but hoping for LOTS more tractors next year. Usually a bunch more Farmalls, but that family are in the bean fields, as well as the family who usually bring several large Olivers. They have a couple with Detroit V8 diesels. Not a single farm size Massey this year either & there are several around close. If I had a heavy trailer, I might bring a couple of our farm Massey's.

Used to, we farmed a few hundred acres just outside town & drove the tractors there often. Just takes maybe 30 minutes to get there. If we drove the Massey Super 90, it would make it in 20...it does over 30mph!
Spectators seemed way down as well. The weekend was changed one weekend earlier last year to avoid cold weather, but has clashed with other large events in other areas. This has hurt turnout also.

Thanks for the pictures Daniel! Congrats also on your winning those prizes! Even if turnout was low, your show still had a nice variety of stuff on display. Moving the dates of shows can really through people for a loss and effect turnout. The group that sponsers our towns celebration moved it one week earlier a couple of years ago. The had a lot lower turnout so decided to change it back to the weekend they always had had it the next year. Summer is such a buzy time that it's hard for people to rearrange they schedules.
