Early to talk about that, isn't it?   3rd week in August.  I have a sale spot way out in field each year. Not so much to take this year, my JT MM and maybe my D series Horse if not sold, and same for MTD 990. Not much else left for selling. My buddy has a few items each time too.  IF you are just showing, there is a lawn and garden area for that, but most are claimed way ahead and same spots each year, so not sure how new guy gets in. You can't sell in the show area then. If you wanna sell stuff, have to be out in field like us and pay for a spot.  Best to contact fellas there NOW to see what is available. As always, never know on weather. If no rain that is odd week, but has happened. I've been there in all rain weeks too, and is messy and cool. People still come, but leave early on those kind of weeks.  Don't come Sunday expecting anything, most are gone, and many leave by Sat afternoon, specially when bad weather.  Best to bring a golf cart or some kind of rig to ride around, can't see it all in one day. Woman like the sales and antique barns best, I pass on most of those. Seeya there!

I've never been to that show or swap meet.  There are a few locals leaning on me wanting me to attend. ( i think they are looking for a free ride) :D   I may go but haven't decided yet.   Rick

Of course I will be there! Haven't decided 100% on what all we are taking but for sure two ridemasters, a couple early handi-Ho's, a nice original 1959 an 1960 ride-a-matic, a versa matic or two an a couple steel wheels if I have room

I'm thinking about going too. It will be my 40th year to show there! Last year I had 2 loads there. One for sale and one for show.
