I was dis-hearted reading the last news letter stating that if your display was not big enough that an additional fee was required to show. I haul over 300 miles to exhibit at your show. I do realize that the club is in need of help to run the show, but how much more expense is one expected to endure? I hold a life membership to the club. This year I decided to go to a different show. BTW I usually bring 1 Full size antique farm tractor & 4-6 (as many as I can fit on the trailer) Hit & Miss Engines.

Three or four small engines would certainly be an adaquate display. Some people try to get out of paying for a flea market spot, but really want to sell their engines. We had the best Friday gate ever, because the weather was predicted to be nasty the rest of the week, and it was. We didn't do any pulls Sat or Sun.

Those are 1928 Oil Pulls belonging to the Ed Winters Collection. They arrived Friday about 6 PM. I was on the vendors gate and radioed that they were coming in and needed a fair amount of space. They were all running when I went by them. I took several pictures Monday evening of the fairly empty spaces and took some Friday before the rain came of the filled spaces. Hope to show some tomorrow.

I was the one in the red Oil pull shirt helping unloading them that day
We planned on working them and putting the big one on the saw mill but the weather ruined all our fun
I believe this is the first time these have been to this show in about 15+ years

Here are pictures of our parking area before and after crowds. The earth moving equipment was moved across the street to make way for Alexander Equipment's New product display. They are one of several dealers who loan us equipment to put on the show. The last picture should be looked at first as it is before the Rally started.

Was delighted to see your 4 Oil Pulls show up Friday night. Too bad the weather did not cooperate - would loved to have seen one on the sawmill or the Baker fan!

The best show that I exhibit at is over 300 miles away, It has no charge for exhibitors. The exhibitors can not sell from there display but they provide a place and a volunteer will sell any engine related stuff you want to bring along. They also have a free breakfast for exhibitors and a special parking lot next to the entrance. I go every year.
