Antique tractors, engines Saturday and Sunday

Staff Reports

The Northern Nevada Antique Power Club’s annual tractor show is in a new location this year at the Valley View Ranch, 1000 East Valley Road, Gardnerville.

The show is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Cost is $3, and free for 12 and younger.

Begun in 1996 by Bill and Dorine Ramsden on their property along Heybourne Road, the annual event may attract 3,000 people and dozens of running antique tractors, engines, cars and machinery dating as early as the 1800s. This year Ramsden passed the torch to Pat and Ann Geary, who live on East Valley Road, off Pinenut Road in Gardnerville.

The tractor show features tractor pulls and games, hayrides, swap meet, silent auction and a display of engines and farm equipment.

Raffle tickets are available to win the prize of a 1941 tractor. Tickets are $1 each, 6 for $5, 12 for $10, 25 or $20.

Carson Valley Sertoma offers food and beverages for sale.
