BADGER – Delbert Dencklau, of rural Fort Dodge, said he enjoyed the WHO Tractor Ride so much that he organized a Webster County tractor ride, which took place Saturday morning.

The idea traveled fast, he said, and approximately 25 drivers arrived at the Dencklau farm, lined up and departed heading for Badger. They arrived in Badger, parking on Main Street and visited with folks talking tractors. About 11 a.m., they departed, parading by the retirement homes in Badger before heading to Vincent where they would enjoy lunch.

Following lunch it was on to Duncombe before the final leg of the trip returning to the Dencklau shed.
