the December 1st Social and Chili cookoff was great. some of us worked on the Case Tractor since it was cold outside, so no engines were out running.  Mike and Luke Toomey were able to get the rear rims and tires off the tractor, while Dean Lamontagne and Jim Desjardins worked on getting the tractor fired up for the first time since the club has had the tractor.  much more work to do but it's making progress.

the Rims were a BEAR to get off Mike and Luke worked pretty hard getting them free
