Last weekend was the huge tractor and engine show @ Boonville, Missouri. The club has struggled with treatment of exhibitors for several years and seem to finally have things on the mend. Didn't hear of any real problems and I personally had a great time. The weather was HOT HOT HOT and dust was a problem at times although two water wagons were in nearly constant use.
This was a Missouri regional show for the VGTCOA and I counted 76 tractors displayed in the area set aside just for garden tractors. There is also a building just for Case equipment that included a few Case garden tractors AND several Deere L&G tractors were in the feature building as Deere was the feature. With a few more garden tractors in the flea market there were easily 85-90 total.
This pic I took Saturday morning and a few more exhibitors came in afterwards.
This is the load I took. I borrowed an F450 Super Duty diesel from work because I think my F250 gasser would have had a hernia pulling that load. The 26 foot trailer had 9 riders and the 12 foot truck bed had 8 walk behinds for a total of 17. There are more pics of the displays on the VGTCOA website under "shows and schedules" and "Boonville, MO" Those pics were taken Friday morning before all the displays arrived. Everything on the white trailer is mine and all the walk behinds shown are mine as well. ENJOY!
