Old Shawnee Days Parade - June 6th, 2015
15 tractors and 18 people took a damp ride to the lineup, but the weather was
dry by showtime. They were representing the club in the Old Shawnee Days parade
Saturday, June 6 in Shawnee, KS. The crowd must have showed up after the rains
as they were dry and enthusiastically waving at the green and yellow tractors.
Mike Thompson, Chief Meteorologist from Kansas City's Fox4 News was the parade
emcee. He told Bob Antes he could hear his 630 thumping, so Bob cracked the
throttle and gave him a little extra noise. The judges liked green as the club
was awarded First Place in the "Best Vehicle Group" category for the second year
in a row.
In attendance was Bob Antes (JD 630), Jay Pruett (JD 530), Justin and Dalamar Read (JD H), Paul Antes (JD 520), Ron Brittain (Farmall 1206), Wes Storm (JD A), Kenny Heines (Farmall M), Phil Addison (JD 420), Don Hrabik (JD 430), Jerry Lee (JD B), Bill Eagleburger (JD BR), Lloyd Mesmer (JD 620 LP), Dan Hanna (JD 60), Frances Brenner (JD 60), Richard Miller with Karon & Avery (JD B and a green trailer).
