Earl Madsen took his ’37 John Deere B with his ’60’s era John Deere 2 row corn planter out for a spin this weekend. The corn planted is grown on the Texas Early Day Tractor and Engine Association’s show grounds and is harvested during our Summer club workdays and stored for use in our demonstrations during our Annual show (first weekend in October).
Thanks to all our participants at this weekend’s Workday/Tree planting. We got all the trees in the ground and irrigated before the end of the day. There is still an opportunity to donate for the trees if folks are interested.
Just download the TEDTEA-TREE-DONATION and mail it in.
We want to wish everyone a happy New Year and let you all know about a few of our 2015 “Important Dates”.
On Feb 4th we have our first Quarterly Meeting of the year.
On Feb 14th we’ll have our first Workday, which will also be this year’s Tree Planting Day (Tree Donation Form)!

Santa stopped by the showgrounds and club member Jeannie Elliott was there to get some pictures of the Jolly Old Elf.
We want to wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We’ve added a bunch of pictures from this year’s show sent in by members and attendees. Head on over and take a look!
Ladies and Gentlemen, From all of the folks that put on the 43rd Annual State show sponsored by Don Ringler Chevrolet and Toyota, to everyone in attendance, THANK YOU!
We had a great time hosting everyone. We got to see old friends, make new ones and just enjoy the company of folks that are dedicated to our premise of “Saving Yesterday for Tomorrow”.
A special thanks goes out to Don Ringler Chevrolet and Toyota, Shooter 92.9, Wheeler Companies, Lone Star Ag Credit, Smetana & Associates, Lone Star Structures, Steiner Tractor Parts and all our other sponsor for this year! We’ll be posting pictures and videos from the show in the next few days, so keep an eye out for those.
And again, we can’t thank all of our volunteers, officers and the other folks behind the scenes for working to bring this all together!
SEE YOU ALL NEXT YEAR!
On 8/06/14 Earl Madsen hooked up his ’37 John Deere B and set out to bring in the Corn at the Texas Early Day Tractor and Engine Association show grounds. 2 days and 2 carts later, he finished. To say we had a bumper crop this year is to put it lightly. The cooler weather and timely rain brought us in plenty of ears ready to shell for this year’s show. Thanks again to Earl for his effort in planting, maintaining and harvesting the corn! Be sure to look for Earl at this year’s show for his corn shelling demo!

Our workday for 5/31/14 didn’t go 100% as planned, but we did bring in the wheat. A special thanks to Earl Madsen, Jarrod Lancaster, the Haas Family and the Hargrove Family for all the work that had to be done to get the reaper up and running. And an extra thanks to Gene Haas for helping to prove the saying that “There’s no such thing as too much WD40!”

Thanks also go out to Chad Haas for grilling some delicious hamburgers and Clinton Noll for hooking up an old fashioned ice cream maker to his John Deere B and making some great ice cream!
