Hey Slim, Though it's only been three weeks, and things take time, was there any word on the economics of the fiftieth show?
Didn't know if others are, but I'm always interested in the profit and loss. What worked and what didn't, the gate take, etc....

I was in Crosby over the weekend. I heard the holes for the Mehmke building will be drilled this week. The roof rafters are on site. The Baby Feather thrashing machine recently acquired will be spruced up over the winter.

HI Ed

I have heard numbers like 5400 and 5800 through the gate over the weekend. Sounds like kitchen and food booths sold out of food.

I was extremely privileged with my partner to attend the 50th Crosby threshing show, to be able to attend the largest display of Prairie tractors along with some of the rarest tractors out and in running conditions was a great privilege. The hospitality of the organising crew was exceptional and everyone made us extremely welcome. To travel half way around the world and experience this show was truly remarkable and a big thankyou to all involved. Norm Johnston. down under

Thanks for the info Kelly. Sounds like (and appeared to be) a super turn-out. Hope it was a break even show (or maybe even made a few bucks). A person can immediately tell that it costs plenty to put on the show from the quality of the souvenir booklet that you are handed when you first pay at the gate, not even mentioning the various feeds/dinners that are sponsored by the historical society. Also, the upkeep of the grounds, buildings and permanent displays goes on year round.....Costly

Hats Off to all the locals that donated their time, services and funds, as well as the volunteers from all over North America, and possibly the world. Let's all hope for even more folks next year......ED

The town Sheriff was taking money at the gate one morning. I heard he was serving pancakes another morning! Still in uniform and with gun in holster - must be a notorious pancake poaching gang on the loose around there. Perhaps they slipped across the border from Fillmore?

Poles are up and rafters were half on yesterday when I passed through!

I had a look at that little machine when I was there at the show. Quite a unique little separator. Where were they built and by who.
will it be in usable condition.
