In case anyone hasn't heard there is a large bolens meet that is being held at the tri-state gas engine an tractor show this year in Portland, Indiana. Show starts weds August 20th an runs thru Sunday the 24th. I have rented a decent size feature tent for some displays an there will be plenty of other area for exhibitors if you are planning to attend let me know that way I have a general idea of how many are coming please plan to attend even if your not exhibiting

Well I wanted to come, but I have to work that Saturday.  Seems like most of the  stuff I wanted to go to this yr has been that way.

 

I'd also like to take a minute and say, some people have gone out of the their way, and spent some of their hard earned to get theses features for the GT's. It would be really fine if guys that said they want to come to them, actually showed up, and not left the promoters hanging. No shows make the whole hobby look bad, not just that show.

I appriciate that it's pretty much all came out of my pocket the guy I orginally planned to do this with sold his tractors an left me hanging but we had already started promoting I have spent a large amount of time an money preparing things I hope we have a nice turn out but never know who will actually show up

Hope you have a good turnout and thank you for all your support and money spent to promote the GT event. Would love to go (this show has been on my wish list for years) but it won't happen this year.

Saw you today Tues and the big display area you are setting up. Lots of Bolens in one spot for sure! Show opens officially Wed and til Sunday, but don't come Sunday, most will be gone Sat nite. Weather so far hasn't rained at all like it was supposed to. Think it will be raining tonight now, but day is looking good.

Today we counted before I left there was 75 bolens pieces with engines most all tractors only a few were other pieces There were 14 ridemasters an one Bean cutler I would say this has to be the biggest gathering in one spot so far. Well worth the time an preparation that has went into this!!!
