April 16 - Happy Easter from the Upper Midwest A-C Club
April 8 - Today at our Membership meeting, elections were held for the Upper Midwest A-C Club. Results are Incumbent Tom Foss, Incumbent Joe Graunke, Scott Overgaard and Joan Paulson. For Board of Director appointed seats: Craig Buss, president; Joe Graunke, vice president; Terry Nowak, secretary; and Darrell Grams, Sr., treasurer.
We wish to express our thankfulness to Matt Wosmek for his years of service as board of director and his dedicated time to being the treasurer for the club. "Thanks Matt, your hard work has been appreciated!"
We wish to thank Darrell Grams, Sr. for his time of service as president of the Upper Midwest A-C Club. Being president can be a stressful job, but with board members willing to help, the job gets done with assistants. "Thank you Darrell for your time and service as president of the Upper Midwest A-C Club."
Due to election results, the Upper Midwest A-C Club is looking for a Children's Activity Coordinator. If you are willing to take over this important position, please contact Craig Buss as soon as possible. The Children Activities are an important part of the Orange Spectacular! We thank Rita (Everhart) Wosmek for her dedicated time to making much fun for all of the children who have attended the past Orange Spectaculars since 2012. "Rita, it was a lot of work and much patience you took with our future attendees and your time and talent has been appreciated!"
March 25 - As spring is arriving slowly and field work starts-up, safety really needs to be our #1 goal to follow so we can come home to our family every night. Please take six (6) minutes to view this video. Stay aware how fast an accident can happen. I hear a lot of people tell me, "that sure was obvious that accident was going to happen." Next thing I hear is, "there was an accident in our industry." Come to find out.....the person oblivious to what was going to happen.

Sept. 11 - I got this emailed to me...I have an Allis Chalmers Model 66 All-Crop Harvester. We have used it the last 6 years or so to harvest our small grain crops of a few acres. This machine works and runs well. We are moving out of the country and cannot take this with us. I need to sell this machine and it would be a travesty if some scrap iron guy purchased this as scrap. I am hoping that I can find a good home for this. I would consider any reasonable offer.
If you are able to spread the word to find a good buyer and home, it would be greatly appreciated. Anyone interested can email or call me at home (leave message). I am located near Glenwood MN.
