Great Nebraska Tractor Ride
We started the first Great Nebraska Tractor Ride in 2005
with inquires from interested KTIC listeners asking us to participate
in a Tractor Ride. Thus the Great Nebraska Tractor Ride was born.
With much excitement and a little nervousness about getting everyone
where they needed to be, we started planning for our first Tractor
Ride. We traveled through the beautiful countryside of Nebraska
starting in Decatur, then to Bancroft, Pender, Wayne, Norfolk, Stanton,
Aloys, West Point, Oakland and Lyons. We learned alot from our first
tractor ride and applied it to our second ride in 2006.
The second Great Nebraska Tractor Ride in 2006 drew many
of our previous tractor drivers along with new drivers. They shared
their past experiences and made new ones in 2006.
The second tractor ride was bitter sweet, we suffered a loss of
one of our Broadcasters Ryan Guill who enjoyed the tractor ride
from start to finish. We honored Ryan in 2006 with magnets on Farm
Director Randy Koenen's tractor and the Tractor Captain's tractors
in his memory. Also in helping out with his memory his parents have
started a Ryan Guill Scholarship Fund that helps students who are
going into the Broadcasting field.
Armed with the knowledge of the first tractor ride we traveled through
beautiful country sides of Nebraska and Iowa. The 2006 tractor ride
kicked off in West Point, then to Scribner, Herman, Blair, and then
in Iowa, Modale, Mondamin, River Sioux, Blencoe and Onawa, and then
back to Decatur, Walthill, and Lyons.
Our third Great Nebraska Tractor Ride in 2007 was great!
We started in West Point bright and early and traveled to Snyder,
North Bend, Schuyler, Octavia, Bellwood, overnight stay in Columbus,
then Leigh, Clarkson, Howells, Dodge, and then back to West Point.
