attachicon.gifimage.jpgattachicon.gifimage.jpgattachicon.gifimage.jpgattachicon.gifimage.jpgattachicon.gifimage.jpgattachicon.gifimage.jpgattachicon.gifimage.jpgattachicon.gifimage.jpg I counted 83 bolens today in our group! I will post more pictures soon on this thread just don't have time to upload all them now. This has really been great an I hope that we can do this again next year!

 

Who had the tiller and little Rider in the last pic?

Any "exotic" stuff make its way out of the wood work at the show?

Yep, Mud/water was bad today! Many pulled out and had to be "Pulled Out" hee! I left at supper with golf cart on trailer in tow and even with 4x barely made it thru the grass lot to the road. Tons of mud flying and "watch-out I'm not stopping!" NOW, my group has to go back in morn to see how bad to get the trailers out of the spots. Might be pulling out stuff with my MM instead and take to the truck on harder ground. 20% storm chance tommorrow again, c'mon, this is enough for this years show!  Still had to pay full price to come in to show and walk around in it, ha! Many women just took off shoes and flops and were barefoot thru the messes in backfield. It always rains at Portland show, but this is heaviest I have ever seen in many years! This is the one we all will remember the most tho.

The finally tally was 85 bolens that showed up at the show just in our gathering. There was probably close to 12-15 other bolens or more that we're being displayed or sold elsewhere on the grounds. Thanks to one member from this forum we kept adding numbers on it was hard to keep up with the count because every time we looked up he was pushing another bolens over to our display! Thanks again Bob!

85 total show up in the bolens area over all the days right?  I think the biggest total sitting there at one time was 70 that Bob and I added up.   Great tern out!
