A RECAP OF OUR 2012 SHOW

The weather for the most part cooperated, and we had a few rain showers on Friday morning and small quick shower Saturday evening, but other than that we had a beautiful weekend for the 32 annual tractor show.
Key points for the GSR show are the new gate admission, it is now $2.00, and all of the tractors are back inside the fence.
Friday, we had tractors and vendors coming in all day and setting up getting ready for the show. The flea market and craft vendors have nearly returned to full capacity with returning and many new vendors. Friday night we had the truck pulls put on by Orlo Inc. we pulled 4x4 pickups and 4x4 diesel pickups
Saturday, the parade started at 10:30 with 117 tractors of all makes and models along with 7 steam engines. Also the GSR float with the clubs new pedal pull tractors were on board. Pulling the float was our 1951 Ford 8N raffle tractor. There were 37 Fords (the feature tractor) and a 1928 Ford Model AA Popcorn Truck. Also, 25 floats and marching groups and 3 equestrian units participated in the parade. The parade ran very smoothly and was well attended as there were people the along entire route.

After the parade, the antique machinery was in full operation. We changed the viewing area around the machinery operations. We added a walking path thru the middle of the area so the viewers could see more of the operations of the equipment. The club members threshed grain, shredded corn, sawed logs, crushed rocks, baled straw, planed lumber and made shingles.
The lawn mower races were on the pulling track putting on a very entertaining show.
Later in the evening was the farm stock tractor pull. As usual there was a good turnout of tractors and people in the stands watching. Also we pulled steam engine which is always a big hit with the crowd.
All together, we had 378 tractors, 97 of which were Fords, 20 exhibits, and 8 steam engines on the grounds. We would like to thank everyone who displayed tractors and equipment during the show.
We would like to give a special thank You to Harold Forrester and Cleveland Forrester and their families for all of the hard work and help with this show.
We had activities for the kids and pedal pulls on Saturday and Sunday.
One of our vendors brought in his Disney popcorn truck. The truck is one of five that Walt had specially built for the Magic Kingdom Park as he liked popcorn trucks when he was a kid. The truck was a Ford 1928 AA, it had been taken out of service and required restoration. Hostetler’s Concessions returned the truck to perfect condition with several mechanical and operating figures churning the popcorn kettle; it was a hit with the crowd. The truck was delivered in an enclosed trailer. Only 5 units were built for Disney. 2 have been sold overseas and this truck is one of only three remaining in North America.

Looking forward to this year’s show, the feature tractor will be JOHN DEERE.
