Default Tractor Show this August

The Sycamore Steam Power Club is having their 50th show this year! They're going to have at least 50 steam engines there, plus a whooooole bunch of various other tractors and a calliope!

www.threshingbee.org

The dates are August 10-13. If you've got any questions, you're welcome to ask me!

If you show up, you'll get to harass us during our honeymoon...

I would have to pull the Bonn out of storage for that. She'* starting to look a little worse for the wear.

Sycamore isn't too far from where I live to begin with, so we could probably meet up some other time, too!

Remind me when that show is if you find out. Chances are we'll be there. I remember Mike mentioning something about a MN show we're going to try to get to this year.
