Delameter's Old Time Thrashing Bee

Show News

| June/July 1987

511 Graffway Lee's Summit, MO 64063

Delameter's Old Time Thrashing Bee was held August 22 and 23, 1986. Several new items and events surfaced for a good show by all.

New was the small Crawler tractor pulling contest. Can you believe a 2-cylinder John Deere walked off with it?

Also new, a chain saw contest, cutting against a stop watch. Untreated railroad ties were the item to be cut. Cuts down through and back up through the tie got down to 4.10 seconds for stock chain saws. Now that is throwing the saw dust!

Also new to the show, Charlie McPheeters and his Belgian pulling horses demonstrating the walking plow our forefathers used.

The shine and amazement in the eyes of young people present was worth all the effort put out by us all to make the show function.
