The Flint Hills Antique Power Association held their fourth annual Plow Day and Tractor Show, displaying all manner of farm equipment ranging in age from the 1920s to the 1960s.

Club President Glen Knuth says the day's rain made the Dan Richard farm a little soggy, but he's pleased with the day.

Demonstrations of antique equipment, including a 1922 Avery wheat thresher, showed the antique equipment can still operate on the farm just like the new stuff (although it's a little bit louder). Awards were given out for best of show, longest distance traveled, and oldest tractor among others, and door prizes were also awarded.

Following that, the Early-Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association, or EDGE-TA, held their annual dinner and regional meeting.
