For those that might not know, the Winamac IN show this week/weekend is canceled for this year due to the park being flooded out by the river that runs along side it.  Definatly in a rainy pattern around here right now.l

LMAO, the gt puller our shop sponsors sent a pic of one of his pullers with fake pontoons next to it!   Its been a real treat for all those at the county fair this week, lots of them getting stuck in the parking lot!   Mike

winamac is ~50 or 60  miles straight east of me, we have had 2 local shows have the same thing happen, both within a few days of when they were supposed to go on.  Several here in my area are upset they didn't just post-pone them.

Sometimes the logistics of getting things postponed are painful. Any one piece of the puzzle can be the fly in the ointment.
Lets say the porta-pot guy has them all rented out for the next couple months... These things take a year to plan out, hard to change gears fast.

If it was an easy thing to postpone a week or two, I would say do it, but I would understand if the organizers have trouble getting it done and say see ya next year.

Other problem is the rain doesnt wanna stop, and with that park being mostly shady, even if the water went down fast, its gonna take a long period of time for the ground to dry and and be firm enough for parking and tractors being driven around.  Some of this rain needs to go to Cali where they really need it!
