Saturday 21 May we had the Dutch Ford and Fordson day. It was the first time we had this in the Netherlands.
The show was held in Museum Boerderij Duurswold Slochteren. The organization was done by the Oude Trekker en Motoren Vereniging, Ford en Fordson Club Nederland, Lanbouw Miniaturen Club Nederland and me The Dutch FFA represantative.
Over 56 owners came to show there tractors all in all we had 80 tractors on the site.
The weather was good and a large crowd came to see the tractors.
In the hall there were clubstands, models, continuous old film performance and of course the catering.
In the afternoon we had an track for in the Netherlands we say ringsteken and afterwards the parade.
Most of the tractors came in the ring and Mr Johan Tempelman told a little history of every tractor.
About five o clock the tractor drivers and the spectators went home with a smile on there faces.
