Only A Few MoreTickets Need To. Be Sold
From this in early 2020
~ Notice to viewers: Our website has been and is experiencing several problems. Many pictures that were on, (and are back on), several of our event pages ~have, from time to time, mysteriously decided to disappear, all by themselves. Slide shows, after being installed according to directions supplied, have so ~many blank windows in them that I have totally given up trying to use the slide show feature and when you go to the website, you never know what any ~given page is going to look like, as many times, the information, pictures and/or the button locations have changed, again, mysteriously, all by ~themselves. I have called GoDaddy's "customer service department" and after spending considerable time with them on several different occasions, they ~have not been able to give me any solutions to correct the problems so, if you experience similar problems when you try to view the pictures, etc., that ~have been posted on any of our event pages, I apologize for the shoddy appearance of the site due to the less than favorable "customer service" that ~I have received. The latest answer I have gotten from "customer service" is that I will have to, "go to their new, upgraded program" and start all over again ~as they have made no provisions to move any of the information, pictures and/or pages from the "old website program" to their new version. Needless to ~say, I will not do that. In my humble opinion, using a GoDaddy website leaves a lot to be desired but for now, with all of the time I have invested in this ~site, that is all that I can do. Lou Kocon Jr.
For 2020, our club will be having another antique tractor raffle. The prizes will be as follows:
First Prize will be a restored 1941 9N tractor. The paint job has been completed.
Second Prize will be a vintage 1978 Ford Garden Tractor that has recently been restored.
Third Prize will be vintage Ford Pedal Tractor. (Both second and third prizes were restored
by 93 year old Junior Helsley.) This year we will be having a Fourth Prize, a Ford toy tractor
pictured below. ** Due to the Corona virus, and Virginia's governor's "Stay At Home Order", ~we are not even sure if we will be going to any tractor events or similar venues this year so ~the drawing will be held at the Shenandoah County Autumnfest which will be held in October ~of 2021. If that Autumnfest is cancelled, the drawing will be held at our building site at The ~Shenandoah County Fairgrounds in October of 2021. The exact date will be posted here ~and in local publications.
As per driver's live in partner, drive DOES go with tractor!
