Freestanding Engine Sheds

For quite a while now, our static freestanding engine displays have been at the mercy of the elements. We’ve been working to address that issue. Thanks to Earl Madsen and Jim Waley for all the work put in. Check out their handwork below.

Our loading dock has taken a beating over the years, but thanks to the Payne family, we’ve got a brand new one. Take a look at the gallery for more details.

Corn Planting 2015

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).
