Gilbert Tractor Club

August 6, 2019

Meeting Place – Gene Upstill Farm 

Welcome \ Introductions: 

Don kicked the meeting off with a welcome to everyone.  

Old Business: 

Presenters are needed, if you have ideas let us know.  

Gilbert Days was a success.  We had around 40 kids for the Kiddie tractor pull.  There were about 40 tractors and 6 engines on display in the parking lot.  The other tractor pull was a bit disappointing as the turn out was lower than expected. 

A big thanks to all who helped out at Gilbert Days

Discussion Items: 

Bethany Manor reminder to bring tractors.  Gather in the small lot on the NW side of the building.  Should it rain the event will be canceled. 

For Sale and Wish List: 

None mentioned.  

Presentation: 

We enjoyed great sweet corn, bologna, side dishes and lots of desserts.  It was perfect weather for eating outside and everyone had a great time looking at Gene’s collection.  His shop was full of even more tractors and memorabilia. A young gentleman, Carter  — Ron Peterson’s grandson, spoke about the Farmall, full size tractor and its toy counterpart which were on display.  He talked about the ownership and restoration. He did a great job speaking to our group.
