Help Crosby, ND Celebrate Its 50th Show

I have been talking with John Tysse about the 50th show coming up July 19-21, 2019. To reach this point has taken hundreds, probably thousands, of people participating. I recall many, many people who have passed on or have become inactive due to the affects of growing older. If you have pictures of these people or stories please share them here. I will start it off with a picture of Tony Rivers. One of the reasons for the growth of this show is the appearance of fresh young faces each year. I am a newcomer on the scene, less than 20 years, so I look forward to pictures and stories before my time. Thanks.

Thanks Kevin. I hope you are just the beginning of a flood of pictures here to honor the work of so many over the years.

If you don't have a digital picture but an old photo, take a picture of the photo with a digital camera or cell phone and email me the digital one at efkruege@midrivers.com I will edit it. The larger the pic, the better the quality so use the closeup feature and send the largest number of pixels you can. Thanks.

Re: Help Crosby Celebrate Its 50th Show

Slim, I had a number of photos from the past ten years, and earlier, sized and ready to post. Names like Clark, Joe, Ben, Kelly, Orris, Jerry, Harold and my friend Vince (who got us started attending). Some still attend and help out, some don't and some have passed on. Suddenly it occurred to me that some of these folks might not want a face put with a name, just for privacy....no other reason. This could be the reason for no one posting photos of someone else......Just a thought.

Ed, is Clark still around? After Joe passed, we never get to see him, just curious. I last saw Joe shortly before his passing at Dave's get together and he related some of the issues going on back home. I started attending in the early 80s and haven't missed too many years. I miss the Kansas guys that had always came to help, and their stories of collecting in the early days. Harold would organize the trip and have one of the fellows do the transportation. Wilfred Abbles was another who would bring his van loaded with the crew. Harold was likely one of the best historians still around, he had personally known many of the persons involved in the early tractor builders. So many faces are familiar at the shows but with out a name tag I'm unable to put the name with the face! I sadly miss the ones long gone but have met a lot of new folks that are a pleasure to know! Some better than others, but sill all good. :D I haven't been taking pictures much any more as the new digital camera's are not in my expertise. Kelly is as close to event photographer as anyone, Since I've been involved with steamer row, I don't get to visit as much as I tend to set up a shade area and keep an eye on the engine and the grand sons. Really keeps one busy! We don't get to have enough vacation time to get there as early as others, so getting things running is a bit of a mad rush to be ready for the show. Always keep in mind to stop and say hello if you happen to stroll past steam row!

Ed, I hadn't thought about that. I guess that might be a possibility for some. The show is a great place to meet a lot of people but with everyone so busy it is hard to get to know much about each other. I miss seeing Joe and Clark. It would be good to see Clark again along with many others. I look forward to the pics you feel comfortable in sharing.

Other names I remember.....Bill Winteringham, Hash brown....??? Potter, George Scott (model engines), Benny Hefner (Model engines).

Im ok with my mug shot posted. I am sure others would be too. If you are at a public event and someone takes your picture I am sure you are free game!

I will dig for some old pictures.

My dad Jim Withers helped John for many years at Crosby for the show.
John told us a couple years ago that dad had been to every show from the beginning until dad's health wouldn't let him go there anymore. I remember running tractors for John when I was a teen back in the 70's.

Kelly sent me some pictures which I will post here. Some like Bill Winteringham and Bill Krumweide, I knew who they were but time is limited at the show so I really never knew them. Others like Oris I had a closer friendship. There are many others I never knew. I would like to see a picture of "Hash Brown". There are so many so please help out.

Here is a picture of Bert Koteles from Christopher Lake, SK on his Allis B. When his family thought he was too old to drive they took away his pickup. So when he wanted to go to town for a beer he used this tractor instead!

Thanks Kevin. I spoke with Bert's step son yesterday to ask for some photos of Bert whom I had known for a very long time. He worked for Western Tractor in Saskatoon, the Allis Chalmers industrial dealer.

Re: Help Crosby Celebrate Its 50th Show

Finally got over the Martian Death Flu enough to have have use of the brain cells required to post photos. Funny how colds, both head and chest, get more debilitating in direct correlation to my age. Here's a few pictures from 2007-2010. I have four more for the next post and Brenda is searching for a couple of prints of Harold and Jerry A. If she gets lucky in her search, I'll post them. (of course we'll have to take a snapshot of them and then download, so you may be waiting a couple'a more weeks. Like the pic that Kelly posted of me, they will not be taken at Crosby, but at one of our local shows....if they get found and somehow make it here.

First photo is Kelly and Gale.

Next is Orris riding his diesel powered scoot "UFFDA"

Third is Ben. He was pretty young then and Jerry A. was keeping him around the foundry a lot of the time. Glad he could sneak out:)

Last is me, Joe Heath and Clark. Joe and Clark did a lot of tractor maintenance before the show, and Joe also ran the JD that belted up to all the hard starting stuff to get them started and through the parade. We just started attending in 2007 and I started helping Orris and Loyd in the machine shop.

Thanks to Ed B and Kelly T more faces have been added to the history of the Crosby show. I will add more that I received from Kelly. One is of Jerry A.(you're right I'm not sure of the spelling); Clarence Young with the Group; of course John T.; Paul Johnson; and Kelly T. Only John T is from Crosby.
