Stantonville tractor show
By Christen Coulon
The Tennessee River Old Iron Tractor Club held its O.F. Wagoner Memorial Tractor Show last Saturday at the Stantonville Community Center.
The event kicked of around 5 a.m. and featured more than 92 pieces including tractors, engines and miniatures as well as music and food.
“We are very pleased with the show, said Dickey Meek, event organizer. “This is the biggest show that we have ever had.”
With several hundred people attending, Meek said that he was happy with the turnout and said that the cold and overcast April day with temps topping out near 50 was perfect weather for the event.
“This is our first year and we are just tickled by the way everything turned out,” Meek said.
Meek commended the cooking of the Smokehouse Rednecks who prepared smoked chicken plates for the event.
“Those boys can cook,” Meek said.
Due to the success of this year’s show, it is likely that this will become an annual event with those at the club to start looking at next year’s show.
“I hope we to have a bigger turnout next year,” Meek said.
