Dodge County Antique Power Club

| July/August 1994

A sea of green filled the Dodge County fairgrounds near Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, last August 7 and 8, as the Dodge County Antique Power Club presented its 25th anniversary Antique Power Show. That sea of green was a large gathering of John Deere tractors, gas engines and implements. John Deere was the club's 25th anniversary feature.

Some 140 individual exhibitors brought nearly 200 pieces of John Deere equipment to the fairgrounds, nearly filling the central feature area.

Two area chapters of the Two-Cylinder Club were invited to participate in the show. The Mid-State and Kettle Moraine chapters' presence and enthusiasm for all things Deere helped make the John Deere feature very successful.

Part of the line-up of antique pulling tractors waiting to be weighed-in Saturday afternoon, August 7, 1993, at the Dodge County Antique Power Show, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. A total of 118 pullers tried their luck on the track Saturday evening. Ronald Schmidt, West Bend, Wisconsin, has his 1932 model C Case on the scale.

A few Deere highlights included: Ken David of Farmersburg, Iowa, brought two beautifully restored Waterloo Boy gas engines; Bob Zweifel, Baraboo, displayed an eye-catching yellow LI with sickle mower; Joe Joas, Kiel, had his A jacked up and sitting on Coke bottles while idling smoothly; and Bill Klem of Baraboo brought a 1944 BO Lindeman crawler, a real rarity in this area.
