Western Farm Show

Feb. 25-27, 2011

Kansas City, MO.



The GKCTCC showed up in force for the Western Farm Show on Friday-Sunday, Feb. 25-27, 2011 in Kansas City, MO.  The club’s 40 ft. display consisted of four tractors, toys, pictures, handouts, and a plowing video.  Individuals bringing tractors included:  Justin Read (JDH), Jerry Lee (JDB), Glenn Ratliff (JDA), and Duane “Spike” Spieker (JDR).  Richard Thompson provided toys for two show cases, Glen Ratzlaff provided the pictures with his wife, Linda, providing the beautiful waterless flowers to enhance the display.  Show attendance seemed to be fair on Friday, great on Saturday, and good on Sunday because of the weather.  Many people were interested in the Dream Factory Cruise information along with the different tractor shows.  It would be difficult to name everyone without missing someone who helped with the display, so here is a big “thank you” to all.  It was truly an enjoyable weekend.
