Great year again at Pioneer Power... The big show's double features were "Classic Tractors" meaning anything made before 1970, and "Vintage Snowmobiles".  I thought the turnout for regular tractors/gas engines was a little weak, perhaps due to no specific brand feature. The snowmobiles however filled the feature building and they had to find space for the overflow in adjacent buildings.  I think I heard they were expecting 125, and by Friday morning there were already 160 with more showing up all day.

 

The Wheel Horse turnout was pretty good.  I never took an actual count, and we were definitely down a few from other years, but we still had a strong showing.

It's been interesting to watch how our presence at the show these last 7 years has begun to really draw out other Garden Tractor exhibitors. 

 

There were a few Wheel Horse items on the auction... none of which came home with club members.  Not that prices were unreasonable... just no one felt the need to own them.  Reportedly the D-250 brough $650.  Supposedly ran and drove in (don't they all, right?), didn't start at auction. post-37-0-50895200-1408980169_thumb.jpgpost-37-0-45672000-1408980170_thumb.jpgpost-37-0-47800300-1408980171_thumb.jpg

 

Lawn Ranger brought short money, but no one was particularly interested in it.

Likewise with the little dump cart.

Was there a bus stop for the homeless there ?  :)

Well... technically... it's Mayo One... The Mayo Clinic's helicopter ambulances.  They fly in every year on Saturday afternoon.  

 

Here's a different shot from a few years ago.

one year they had just landed and had to fly again to respond to a crash.... they're pretty much always in the air around here.

      Another good year at Pioneer Power, the weather wasnt so great but i beleive Jason counted 50  this year!  Im not the best at remebering to take pics but here are a few i took
    • By CasualObserver
      I've just heard this morning that the Le Sueur show that some of our  members have attended for several years is going to host the MN Cockshutt collectors which I'm guessing is a small group because they also want to do a shared main feature of Wheel Horse and other brands of GT feature next year. Show dates are Aug 26-28, 2016.  We are getting first crack at promotion since we've had a Wheel Horse presence at this show for a while now. Our group, the North Central Wheel Horse Events Club (NCWHEC) has been going to this show since 2008. We were initially added to the show in 2008 as a feature and almost not invited back due to some miscommunication and misunderstandings about expectations and show operation. This show does not allow a general swap meet at the summer show. They hold a separate annual swap meet in the spring with about 1500 vendors that take up the entire showgrounds and even a lot of area used for parking during the summer show.  However, when you're the feature, vendors who have non-swap items are allowed to have booths... such as decals, new reproduction parts, other novelties and memorabilia type stuff. Just no used part swap meet type stuff. Being the shared feature, there will also be use of half of a 60x130 feature building for anyone who might want to set up there with displays that they want to keep out of any potential weather.

      Anyway, I'm posting this out here nice and early to see if anyone has an interest in coming out the Minnesota way in 2016.  Lots of time to work out details and questions. Just wanted to throw this up nice and early to avoid some conflicts with other shows that are usually around that time. I know we got Lane a pretty good turnout a couple years ago when he asked for representation at an IL show... I'm hoping that with enough advance notice and planning we can really get a great turnout.

      CONGRADULATIONS MIKE, DALE AND JASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      What a SUPER display .... really a impressive job!
      That is quite a lot of Wheel Horses ...... I know you get more next year! I bet quite a few big tractor owners took a second look at your Wheel Horses.
      Dale ..... your the MAN this year for being at the 10th Annual Wheel Horse Show in PA and the North Central Wheel Horse Events Club show in Minnesota!
      Oh ... Uh was that 653 I see in the back ground for sale????
