We were very pleased with our second annual show held at the Robert Ring berg farm south of Wood hull on June 20 and 21, 1987.

Our featured tractor was a 1926 row crop Fordson owned by Don Stromquist of Lynn Center, Illinois. Our featured engine was a Sandow, owned by Ralph Moore of Viola, Illinois. The tractor and engine were featured on our plaque and button respectively.

The first day started off a bit windy, but with all the enthusiasm things got to moving quickly.

We had about 60 engines of various sizes. There were about 95 tractors, all sizes and colors. There was something for everyone. There were even llamas to look at and pet., There was a very nice display of toys, all set up on hayracks. We had a broom-maker busy all weekend showing us his craft. Lots of flea markets also.

We had our parade at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday with a kiddie tractor pull at 2:00. The kids had lots of fun and got lots of prizes.
