We think you should! www.gatheringofthegreen.com

- 25 tours of regional John Deere factories, The Rock Island Arsenal, and other local places of interest.
- A two-day premiere toy auction of the collection of Eldon Trumm.
- Fabulous displays including a working Aermotor windmill, THE John Deere Dain tractor, two Waterloo Boys, Wes Malcolm's experimental "A", and much more!
- Speeches by top Deere executives going back, and looking forward 100 for years of tractors.
- 70 vendors with truckloads of parts, new and used.

Gathering of the Green is just spectacular. The Technical Seminars provide invaluable information that cannot be found anywhere else. Conversations with fellow tractor enthusiasts are very stimulating. Everything is first class and an unbelievable amount of planning and effort goes into this event. My favorite event was the 24 Volt Starting, Charging, and Lighting Class.

Beer & Bull Gears event....entertaining and informative.
Rubbing shoulders with past and current factory people
Watching a crew build a silo in the concourse (yes that really happened)
Fantastic displays, vendors
Being able to participate.....I have been honoured to help with the display put together by John Deere enthusiasts from Ontario Canada. (watch for our display this year, hint: it involves snow)

You guys from Canada have the most amazing displays at the Gathering. They are simply incredible. Looking forward to what you're bringing down in 2018!

Have attended all but the last, due to family health issue 2 years ago. The information at the seminars, the networking opportunities and just plain fun are unparalleled.Can't imagine anyone connected to the John Deere hobby that would not find it worth attending.
