This is more of a swap meet than a show. It is put on by several clubs working together. A lot of tractor stuff, a fair amount of gas engine stuff and some just plain old "junk". I will be over on Saturday morning to look around and visit. I can't take an engine as I have family Easter in the afternoon at Ben Wheeler, TX. I think this is the 3rd year or maybe 4th and it has been bigger and better every year. Hope to see yall there. I will be wearing my Stakker button Harry sent a few weeks ago.
