Harvest for Kids in Winkler, MB

This Saturday Aug 4th we plan on breaking the world record for the most combines in one field all combining at the same time. It also a huge fund raiser to seen kids to camp. I sure hope we break the record but at the end of the days its all able the kids!
Here there website : Harvest for Kids ? Children's Camps International

In 2010 we broke the record with 200 combines but Saskatwen now holds it at 244 combines.

I hope all those that can make it will!
My Friend Machinery Pete (Greg) did some promo posts for the event. Here is what he emailed me,

Got an email the other day that there will be a combine loss clinic held there, probably the perfect time for such an event.

No chance I would ever go to such a gong show but I hope people donate, it is a good cause.

Thanks Guys! Yes I too hope they raise lots of money for the kids! That what this is all about. A farmer asked a Friend of mine you want to drive one of my new Deere combines is that event on Saturday? My Friend says I have never driving a Deere combine (retired farmer and everyrhing was Case-IH, IHC and a Versatile 4WD) it would not be far to the combine or me! The Guys ya that is true!

Don’t have to wonder who has the combine market wrapped up in our area! As far as that goes tractors MFWD and 4WD tractors as well! Went for a ride in the country in spring and I was out for 3.5 hours and I could not find any other tractor on the field other then a Deere! Farmers I have know for 30 ish years that used to have other brand tractors are all driving Deere tractors! The service Green Valley Equipmeny has is unreal!

Green Valley Equipment (GVE) has done a lot on volunteer work to make this advent possible! Way to go GVE!!

I see 3 machines didn't do the required 5 minutes of combining. Guess they should have gave those 3 New Hollands more to do as they finished their rounds too soon!!!

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Sorry for not responding sooner! Yes they brook the record with 303 combines!! 305 showed up but two did not make it long enough to count. One had electrical problems and the other combine had mechanical issues. 303 combines on one field! Wish I could of gone but unable to due to health reasons!
Here are some pictures, the people that had been there said it was unreal to see and feel all these combine coming at you!
The second last picture where there are 4 Deere combines waiting to unload, these were all brand new combines never been to the field yet. This was half of the combines that on farmer brought, he brought 8 new Deere combines to the event with another 4 new combines at work at home! I can’t imagine the fuel bill for filling 12 combines! WOW that would be unreal!!
