Default Crosby Threshing Bee

AS this an OLD thread this was a one time change and the Divide County Show at Crosby, ND is ALWAYS the third full weekend of July.
Always.


Just a quick note to let everyone know that the Crosby Threshing Bee has been moved to the 21, 22, 23 of July. The show has been traditionally held the third weekend in July. But for this year it will be held on the dates shown.

I wanted to get this information out early so the word gets around and people won't show up on the wrong weekend.

Please pass this information along to anyone who may not be on the web and may be planning on coming to the show.

Remember July 21, 22, 23 2006 be in Crosby ND

Default New dates for Crosby Threshing Bee for 2006 ONLY

Because of the big departure from the 30 odd years this show has been held the THIRD weekend of July I'm posting this information here as well as the Shows calendar:

I was asked to post this show information. PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE OF DATES THIS YEAR ONLY.
Craig

Here is the OFFICIAL word from John Tysse Jr.:
Dates for the Divide County Show held at Crosby, N. Dak. Over 30 years ago we decided to hold the show on the third weekend in July counting Saturday as the beginning of the weekend. This year they got mixed up and thinking Friday was the beginning of the weekend set the later date. When I found out about this I wanted it put back where it should have been but found it would probably make things worse due to the commitments they had already made so have to leave it that way. This year instead of the 14-15 & 16 of July the show will be held a week later the 21-22 & 23 of July. We want to be sure to get the word out and hope no one gets mixed up and comes the third weekend as it always has been held on. We feel bad about this but no one meant to do wrong and guess I should have been at the meeting but had no reason to think the date would be changed so again remember the Divide County Show at Crosby is held the 21-22 & 23 of July 2006 at Crosby, N. Dak.

Hey guys - Whatever the dates, it is one show everyone should make a point of attending some time. If you want to see that great old prairie iron in action, Crosby is the place to go. I just wish I wasn't 1500 miles away or I'd be there every year.
Rick.

Am thinking about a trip up there. Is there a good stationary engine display. Think I might bring some engines if I come. Love the big tractors. Have to decide on Rollag or Crosby this year. Dan

Dan, if you have BEEN to Rollag.........do yourself a favor and give Crosby a shot! You can get as close to the iron as you want without being hounded and the guys MIGHT ( ) have more time to actually TALK with you...

Man, am I glad you put this on here, wouldn't miss it for the world, but might not have a job when I got back if I couldn't get the vacation time right. There's not anything like it, but the people are still my favorite part. My kids like the pioneer village and the pool the best. My wife tries to buy out the flea market, and I like learning about the big stuff from people who actually know what they're talking about. Pat.

Just another bump!

I have attached a panoramic view of the tractor line-up. This doesn't include the steamers and rubber tired tractors as well there are about a half a dozen tractors out of view on the left.

I am not sure if this will work well or not but thought I would give it a try!

Hoping to be there myself. My dad and I go every year as it's about an hours drive there. For a long time we ran Averys through the parade. Was tons of fun. Anyway just wanted to add that if anyone wants to see a rare tractor there's a couple there. One is a Case steam roller which operates on a 12 volt system. Forget the year but it's pretty old. Think early 1900's Also there is the Emerson Big 4 experimental 6 cylinder. Will try to put a picture of it here. Also thought to put in a picture of the stationary engine building. There are two of them.

Arrow Re: New dates for Crosby Threshing Bee

Some folks found this OLD 2006 thread while searching the web for the 2009 Crosby Threshing Show and didn't notice it ONLY refers to the 2006 show. The dates for the 2009 show are Friday through Sunday, July 17, 18 and 19, 2009. There have been no date changes for 2009.

I'm retitling this NOW misleading thread and may possibly merge it with another.
If not for some pretty good pics I'd delete it and be done with it....

Thanks, Craig. I'd love to have this old 2006 thread deleted somehow. It was the first one that came up in my search again. Don't want any confusion about the 2009 show dates!
