The event held near Langenburg, Sk. in the summer of 2013 established a world record (to that point in time) of 41 threshing machines all threshing grain at once. Meet key organizers of the event, Ken Mack and Warren Kaeding as they describe various aspect of organizing such a large event. It involved over 400 volunteers and did raise over $100,000 to help fight world hunger. See real old timers who actually harvested with some the machines along with young teenagers like Alex and John Kirby from Spy Hill, Sk., who purchased and restored an old Red River special threshing machine and ran it at the event.
