Delameter's Old Time Threshing Bee

| December/January 1985

511 Graff Way Lee's Summit, Missouri 64063

Delameter's Old Time Threshing Bee was held north of Lee's Summit, Missouri, on August 24 and 25. Talk about a good host! If you are close by next year, come on in. George and Dorothy Delameter are as nice a farm host as you'll find anywhere.

George and Bill Browning's tractor rest home was the site of the 2nd annual Old Time Threshing Bee. Our record breaking wet August almost drowned it out, but it cleared enough to get it in.

George loves to show you some of his 35 or so collected tractors and old threshing machines and so the Delameter Threshing Bee was born last year.

George travels the Grain Belt Nebraska, the Dakotas and Wyoming servicing and repairing the head house scales in grain elevators when he is not restoring something old. He is ably assisted by his neighbor 'Uncle' Bill Browning, a retired carpenter/farmer, in his restoring work.

Between the two of them, they have restored 30 tractors and associated pieces of farm equipment and have another 30 or so in the process. Their pride this past winter was the 1920 Titan that they acquired in full dress rust and stuck up condition, and had running and in new paint for this show.
