SHOWGROUNDS


SOMEWHERE AROUND 1972  A HALF DOZEN FARMERS STARTED GETTING TOGETHER TO PLAY WITH THEIR OLD TRACTOR AND MACHINERY TOYS.

 OVER THE YEARS THIS SMALL BEGINNING HAS TURNED INTO THE LARGEST ANTIQUE TRACTOR SHOW IN MICHIGAN.


 WITH CLOSE TO 500 ENTHUSIASTIC MEMBER FAMILIES, THE SHOWGROUNDS  HAS GROWN TO 110 ACRES  AND A BUNCH OF BUILDINGS WITH PERMANENT EXHIBITS AND FACILITIES. THE MMOGTA SHOWGROUNDS HAS BECOME A PRETTY IMPRESSIVE PLACE.

MORE INFORMATION  ABOUT THE SHOWGROUNDS, ATTRACTIONS AND PERMANENT EXHIBITS!

THANKS TO  A BUNCH OF LOCAL SPONSORS,  HARD WORKING MMOGTA MEMBERS,  TEACHERS AND CHAPERONES, AND ESPECIALLY THE GREAT KIDS IT IS A GREAT DAY AND EVERYONE HAS FUN, LEARNS A LOT, GETS A BAG OF FUN STUFF TO TAKE HOME AND HAS A GOOD LUNCH.



PULLING

A LOT OF EFFORT AND TIME AND MONEY AND FRUSTRATION GOES INTO BUILDING, TWEAKING AND MAINTAINING THE PULLING TRACTORS AND EQUIPMENT THAT ARE IN USE AT THE SUMMER PULLS AT THE SHOWGROUNDS.

CHARITABLE DONATIONS

MMOGTA  DOES A LOT FOR THE COMMUNITY WITH CHARITABLE DONATIONS TO LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS
SUCH AS HOSPICE, FIREFIGHTERS, BOY SCOUTS, AND FFA AND ALSO INDIVIDUALS IN NEED.    MEMBERS TIME AND CLUB FACILITIES ARE ALSO  VOLUNTEERED FOR LOCAL EVENTS.





MEETINGS

SINCE ALL OF THIS STUFF DOESN'T HAPPEN BY ACCIDENT, THERE IS A MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP MEETING TO DISCUSS PLANS, WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT AND WHO IS GOING TO GET IT DONE.

THE ELECTED OFFICERS ALSO GET TOGETHER ONCE A MONTH.

AND THE VARIOUS GROUPS AND COMMITTEES SPEND A LOT OF TIME DISCUSSING WHAT THEY ARE WORKING ON.




WHAT REALLY MAKES IT ALL HAPPEN

THere are a lot of people that spend a huge amount of time!

Building construction and maintenance, old machinery aquisition/rebuilding/installation & demonstration, showgrounds improvement and maintenance, and event planning and implementation wouldn't happen without the dedicated people that get it all done.
