July 19th and 20th will mark the tenth anniversary of the Camp Creek Antique Machinery and Threshing Show at Waverly, Nebraska. The idea of a threshing bee was first pursued in 1986. In 1977, the Camp Creek Threshers became an organization and since then the show has been attracting thousands of people from several states and even some foreign countries.
In 1980 the show was expanded from one to a two day show which is held annually the third weekend in July, rain or shine. This year's show will feature a 1920s vintage steam crane. The crane is set on sixty feet of track and will be in operation during the show. Other additions include a children's playground and a new loading dock.
This year's feature tractor line is Massey-Harris and the feature engine line is Gade. (All exhibitors are welcome!) The feature tractor this year is 1928 Farmall Regular.
