Chapter 4 – Midwest Smaller Crawlers covers Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin which hosts the Rock and Dirt Show @ the Rock River Thresheree in Edgerton Wisconsin on Labor Day weekend. The show contains a dirt demonstration area with several pieces of antique Caterpillar equipment on working display for the public.
So why is this year a year to attend the Rock and Dirt show at the Rock River Thresheree? Here is a glimpse of what you will find at this years show and much more! See you at the show!
Chapter 4 met for a workday on August 14th to get ready for the Rock River Thresheree. A lot of credit goes to all the members hard work this year and during the slow time over the last year. As show time gets closer the joys of seeing the progress is amazing, this year is a great year to see the show and the new displays and operating equipment. The Rock River Thresheree this year is featuring steam and you will find many pieces on each side of the park. The members have done many projects from painting, planning, maintenance, rebuilding, hauling, unloading, displays, ground work, and so much more. The workday was productive as always from work on Ten, running diesel forty, D6, D8, work on pull grader, painting, grading, 3 separate crane lifts at park, work on the feature on our end of the Furguson Bros. Bucyrus 41B Steam Dragline, and so much more. This year the progress of each day has been tremendous and it will show! We are thankful to have received some eager new members this year to jump in and work on equipment and join the club! Thank you to everyone for all the support for the show ahead! We will see you at the show!
