Default World Threshing Record Attempt in Ontario

Since I got the first attempt mixed up, I'll start a new thread.
There will be an attempt made on August 15 of this year to break the world record of most threshing machines working in one place at one time. This was made in Langenburg, Saskatchewan a couple of years back with 41 machines.
This time, the attempt will be made at the annual festival at St. Albert, in eastern Ontario:
http://www.thereview.ca/eastern-onta...w-world-record
They are hoping to have 60 machines in operation. There will be steam and tractor power and maybe even real horse power. It is being hosted by the St. Albert Cheese Factory so that you can do some shopping for high quality cheddar at the same time!
If anyone has more information or other links to this event, it would be nice to read more about it. It should be a lot of fun in beautiful eastern Ontario.

Hi Oncle G;
I don't have a really good easy chair,just an old folder that has a mind of it's own at times. Thought I'd come on this thread to keep things orderly for you! As far as sweat wiping goes, I do not think 15 minutes will bother an old hand like you that has decades of threshing behind him.Besides, someone has to maintain a vigilance on the "kooler", do not desire the OKeefe to get warm,like you like your soda water. All the best,see you soon,Tomq

As of May 20th, we had 80 threshers registered and we are expecting a few more in the coming weeks. For more info, ei - entertainment, camping, beer, etc. go to the Factory's website - Google "St Albert Cheese".

In view of the late spring as posted on another thread, is there going to be crop ready to be harvested on Aug. 15th?? Is there an alternate date if needed?

Bill

Bill,
Wheat harvest in this part of Ontario is generally done by then. But Ottawa is 5-6 hours east and a bit north so not sure about there? Not sure if they are doing wheat or oats? Barring some major calamity, they should be ok.

Yet to come. Any news or updates on this event? Chatted with some folks from the area last week and it sounds like they have an ever growing line-up of threshers, or mills as they call then in that area.

Hi Oncle G and followers;
They cut the barley on Saturday,had it stooked behind the 4 tractor and 1 horse grain binders all in 1 day! lots of interest and helping hands.I steamed cob corn with the "45" for a lunch. The grain is to be put on wagons and under cover this coming Saturday. Things still seem to be on track! Oh yea,there was a parade scheduled for today,picking up mills along a projected 77km route through many towns in eastern Ont. See you'all on the 15th August,in St Albert,Tomq
