July 27 - It was a busy day yesterday see and meeting many of our guests at the Orange Spectacular. Everyone was having such a good time. The weather was perfect, ticket sales were outstanding, the food and swap meet vendors were busy, the field demos went very well with so many spectators in the fields. Our attendance count into/on the grounds were 7352...THANK YOU for everyone's support.
July 25 - Our club would like to thank all 2468 of our first day guests to the Orange Spectacular. We have one of our fields all plowed up. If you didn't get a chance to see it, you missed a "dandy" of field demonstrations being done with 125 cubic inch engines. Joe Graunke had a Model 70 forage harvester with side discharge. Hope to see you tomorrow.
July 25 - Just got some sad news....I was just told Lyle Wacker of Osmond, NE passed away. Just last week, he was buried at a cemetery in Plainview, NE. A man that was dedicated to specific and exact decals for restoration projects....our thoughts and prayers go out their family.
