The Club started the 2016 season with the first three events taking place at the Norfolk Showground, the first of these being The Spring Fling which is a very hands on day where everyone is allowed to get on the equipment if they wish. As a Club we feel that it is important that some events allow the public and especially the young to be able to understand the relationship between the tractors, engines and implements to the production of the food we eat. Once again we did our best to share our knowledge with all.
Following this a few days later on April 9th and 10th we were invited to The Eastern Counties Vintage Show where this time we seemed to have more of smaller agricultural machines standing alongside the tractors and ploughs, a fine display of hedge cutters made for interesting viewing.
For anyone who came to this event they must have been impressed by the display of commercial vehicles, vintage machinery cars etc some of which had never been displayed before.
The third event in April took place on the 23rd and 24th where we were invited to the Game and Country Fair, once again some members gave their time to help set up the stand, it was not warm, hail showers were frequent, but members still ran engines and displayed machinery, Steven had a wonderful display of Tarpen horticultural equipment, whilst Adrian gave good demonstrations inside the engine pen of various grass cutting machines.
On Sunday 15th May Sir John White organised a Tractor Road Run and barbeque from the Salle estate for charity, approx 34 tractors took part through the country roads of North Norfolk.Club members worked hard whilst the tractors were away to make sure that the food was ready to eat on return. A good day was had by all.
