So what DO you do when it’s minus 32 degrees? Well, these
old boys from Saskatchewan, Canada, like to go Deere hunting. This
John Deere ‘D’ sat on a fence line on the back forty for 45
years. However, six weeks after this find, the ‘D’ was
sporting new paint and decals and kept a 2/4 beat as well as any
marching band around. What began as a fund raising project for a
new community center in a village of 200 people has blossomed into
an enthusiastic winter pastime for more than 20 local volunteers.
This tractor and a 22-36 McCormick-Deering were both ready for the
lucky winner of the September 1st, 1995 drawing.

Plans are already underway for the winter of 1996 with six more
tractors and 30 more volunteers. A Rock Island and Rumely Oil Pull
are already drawing a lot of attention. Most folks don’t look
forward to five months of ice and snow, but the folks around
Maymont, Saskatchewan, can hardly wait! More information can be
obtained about this project from Bill Sherlock, Box 144, Maymont,
Saskatchewan, Canada SOM 1T0, phone (306) 389-2017. We always
appreciate the support and a visit from our American neighbors.
Drop in and say hi, if you are on the Yellow head to Alaska.
