We have some very sad news for this group. Longtime club member Richard Schmitz, age 75 of Atlantic, Iowa passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, February 8, 2018.

Many may know Richard as "the baler guy". He was usually found on one of his balers doing field demos at Orange Spectaculars and other Allis Chalmers events. The 444

 baler shown on the club's 2018 toy flyer belongs to Richard.

We extend our heartfelt sympathies to Richard's family and friends.

Field Demonstration feature: Two 220 fwa plowing followed by an HD-6 ag crawler with plow.
