Gathering of the Green 2010

If you were looking to pinch someone not wearing green on this St. Patrick’s Day, you would have been out of luck at the River Center in Davenport, Iowa, where there was a sea of green hats, shirts, pins, coats … and tractors. 

That was the location of the Gathering of the Green show, a volunteer-run, biennial premier event for John Deere two-cylinder and New Generation enthusiasts and collectors. It was quite a gathering, holding true to the theme, “Where Friends Meet.” The show was held March 17-20, 2010.


Entry way at the 2010 Gathering of the Green show.

The event is organized and hosted by four clubs:
• Deer Valley Collectors Club
• Illinois Valley Two-Cylinder Club
• North Eastern Illinois Two-Cylinder Club
• Northwest Illinois Two-Cylinder Club

I have the privilege to know many of the club members who are responsible for the Gathering and they are all a great hard-working bunch.
