Craig Anderson, club president, belted his Hart-Parr 18-36 to the thresher too, and there was more barking!

July 14-15, 1990 marked the date of the start of a tradition in Rosholt, Wisconsin, for those were the dates of the First Annual Thresheree held here and sponsored by the Rosholt Area Threshermen, Inc.

The club was officially formed on December 14th of 1989, and incorporated on February 6th of 1990.

Planning for the first show was hectic and the possibility of not having any grain for the thresher was a definite problem. A cold, prolonged spring didn't help the oats situation either, even though two club members seeded the earliest oats variety available.

Our financial situation was not that great either, so advertising was placed sparingly, but apparently in the right places, because replies began coming in and things really shaped up nicely.

Our biggest asset is a beautiful park in the village, which is the site of the Portage County Fair. Everything in the line of buildings and space is tailor-made for such an event, and the Fair Board was most cooperative with us, as well as the village and surrounding area, for this show would be the first of its kind in the immediate area and would surely be good for the community.
