Some hard work by the staff (plus a large Caterpillar) made the water-logged track ready for the tractor pull on Saturday evening.
International Harvester was featured with a great showing of classic IH, Farmall, and Cub Cadet tractors. In addition, new CaseIH tractors were on display courtesy of Minnesota Ag Group. Several classic International trucks were at the show.

The club hosted an excellent show with a great display of tractors, vendors, and antique power demonstrations.
