On August 1st, the Woodstock Police Department sponsored Woodstock Night Out, an event mainly for youngsters, which was held from 6PM until 9PM at the W.O. Riley Park here in Woodstock. Our tractor club was asked if we would participate by bringing our barrel train for the kids to ride, which we gladly did. Once the event began, the barrel train was constantly busy. By my count our driver, Bruce Mangum, made 36 + - laps around the field and with the exception of just a few of those laps, all eight of the barrels were full. Below you will find pictures of the grounds where we were stationed, the barrel train, the tractor club crew and several laps around the field, plus some of the other activities offered. Enjoy the pictures.
Wasn't that fun?
