TRACTOR WORLD. THREE COUNTIES SHOWGROUND, MALVERN,WORCESTER.
5th - 6th MARCH 2011
A crowd of nearly 10,000 was seen at Tractor World 2011, held at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern, Worcestershire on 5-6 March.
The exhibits in all classes were superb at this the largest indoor/outdoor show of the spring.
The FFA stand was a great success, not only with our tombola, but our merchandise sold very well indeed with a member coming from Germany to see us at the show.
We welcomed 32 new members to the Ford and Fordson Association who all enjoyed refreshments and hospitality which was offered to all our members who came to see us. Our stand was well looked after by the 12 members that manned it during the two day's of the show.
There were some 60 plus Ford, Fordson, Roadless and County tractors that were all part of our Ford & Fordson Association display.
FFA Member is Champion
FFA member George Yarwood was to take the "Major Honours" at the show with his Roadless 118 and was crowned 2011 National Concours and Rally Champion, taking the title from ‘arch rival’ David Aylward and his "Orange" Nuffield machine.
"Well Done George Yarwood"
FFA Raffle Prize -1960 petrol Fordson Dexta
On Sunday at 11am Wendy Gibson (Our FFA's Superb Tea Lady), pulled the winning members ticket out the hat for the petrol Dexta that had been so generously purchased by Kelsey Publishing for the Association and rebuilt by members as a gift for membership of the FFA. The winning ticket came from Northern Ireland of Rodney Getty, who has been a keen member of the Association from the beginning.
"Congratulations to Rodney Getty"
Congratulations to all involved in this kind gesture and to the work that went into the rebuilding of the tractor by the team, besides Peter Godwin and Graham Dell for transporting the tractor to and from the show at their own cost.
It has been decided that the FFA will present three awards in 2012 at this show (Friends of Ferguson Heritage and Ferguson Club do a similar thing). These awards will be judged by exhibitors and members who attend.
