Hello All,
I am trying to find GT shows in Texas to attend. I live about 40 miles from San Antonio, and have not been able to find any in this part of the country. I grew up in Indiana, and we had shows in about every county. Thanks for your input. BrianPosted Image

There is what some call it the "book" and they have online listings as well. Here are the listings they had for Texas this year: Farm Collector

Looks like there were only three at least on the online listings. Whether or not there are more in the paper release I can't tell you because I don't get the "book".

Well, I'd say it's up to you... and some friends... start your own GT show, in your own town...
(less travel).

good luck

I can understand your frustration. I looked at the shows for Indiana listed in the book and there are three pages. We are fortunate here in this part of PA that there are quite a few shows within a 2 hour drive or less. I like Walt's idea about starting your own show. It may start out small but would hopefully grow each year. You could maybe even do a spring and fall show. Good luck.

I have often wished there was a Kentucky garden tractor club, or at least one for my region of the state. I also thought if I ever had the time to start one of my own that it could be an extension of GTT, say like "GTT of Central Ky". Would be another way to form a concentrated network. While I brought this up, I have no idea as to getting something like this off the ground.

Daniel,

I tried to start a new group here at GTT, but I can't because of some kind of restriction. I would love to start a sub group for Tx. here and see if we get any interest. Thanks, Brian

Brian, I made changes and you should be able to create your group now. You may also want to promote your group by adding a link to it in your signature. Please remember also that it may take a while to gain interest in your group as the site is still growing as well as it's member base.

Thank you sir,

I will work on this project this weekend. I hope that we will see some response, and also be able for others to do the same for their area. Brian

You could try placing an ad about it on craigslist in the "farm&garden" section. I bet the locals that are into GT's look there a lot.

While we're on the subject...Maybe you or one of the Mods could come up with an "approved" boiler plate flyer for the website that folks could download and print out for that purpose. I know you're busy enough for two people, but would it be better to have a uniform format for public exposure of the site?

I did have a flyer somewhere on my pc. Will see if I can dig it up. I know this has been mentioned before having the logo posted so members could use it to print up their own flyers. We also have business cards, if anyone wants any they can send me a pm with their mailing address and I can send some out.

George,

I have tried to set up a new group, but it still says I don't have access.

Thanks for your help, Brian
