Scenes From Our 2009 Show
Eastern Shore Threshermen's 2009 show was held on August 7, 8, 9.
We had a good show. A really good crowd came out and enjoyed the show. The volunteers and vendors should all be commended for coming out and working to put on the show. A big Thank You to everyone!
A scene from our front field during threshing on Saturday.
Threshing using the organization's 1923 8 1/2x10 Frick traction engine and a Frick Thresher.
This steam engine is pinch hitting for the upright boiler to provide steam for the stationary engines in operation at the show. The upright boiler will be getting a new set of flues before next year.
Here, Smokey Joe is busy carrying young and old alike on trips around the track. The miniature train is a 16" gauge and was built in 1961 by the Crown Metal Products Company.
The rock crusher shows visitors how to turn big rocks into small stones. These were used for road building in the early 1900's.
Vintage cars came in all shapes, colors and years and were enjoyed by kids of all ages.
Tractor games were enjoyed by spectators as much as participants. Held each evening, they demonstrated the operator's ability to handle their tractors.
A blacksmith was on hand to demonstrate how to make things out of iron.
Live steam models were enjoyed by kids of all ages.
On Saturday, the "Evolution of Threshing" demonstration is held. It follows how farmers threshed their grain from the time of the flail (beating it out with a stick) to crude threshers and more "modern" threshers like this John Deere tractor and John Deere thresher from the 1940s era.
Part of the crowd enjoying the parade which is held each afternoon. These tractors are just a few of the hundreds of tractors at the show each year.
Part of the crowd waiting for the free country music show to start. A show is held each evening with names like Mel Price and Nite Shift.
Sunday morning starts out with outdoor non-denominational church services held on the grounds.
A Kid's Pedal Pull is held on Sunday afternoon.
This rare Taylor stationary steam engine was also in operation.
The show winds down on Sunday evening with gospel music. Here, the Rescue Team entertains the crowd.
