Floyd Moore is the face of the K & O Steam & Gas Engine Association – Branch 11 of EDGETA.
Not only did he serve as president of the club for over 20 years, but continues as the executive director. He promotes our annual show at other EDGETA events, is licensed to operate our steam engine, has served as the announcer of our show, is a source of knowledge and club history, and is one of the most ready volunteers in the organization. When the club meeting room was constructed, he was in charge of the plumbing and electrical work. Floyd, who lives in Wellington, Kansas, is also treasurer of the Sumner Country Antique Tractor Association – Branch 70 of EDGETA.
As an avid Massey-Harris enthusiast, he has a collection of over 80 Massey items – tractors, equipment, sales memorabilia, and even a snowmobile. Floyd uses a model 44 Massey-Harris in tractor pull competition. He has served as board member and vice-president of the Massey Collectors Association and took part in their Great Planting on September 22, 2001. Near Chillicothe, IL. This project, which gained entry into the Guinness Book of World Records, met the challenge of plowing, discing, harrowing, and planting a 130 acre wheat field in one day using only Massey Harris tractors and equipment. Over 100 tractors, with a wide variety of models, took part in the event. It is the opinion of the officers of the K & O Steam & Gas Engine Association that Floyd Moore certainly deserves to be recognized by induction into the EDGETA Hall of Fame for his contribution to the collection, preservation, and exhibition of antique agriculture equipment
