Relatively new to the NE Texas area here. Not sure I will still be here for the 2017 show (of course now that I think of it, none of us really are) but curious if there are any shows for this year going on here in the Lone Star state. I would love to find some others here with like interests.

No intention of hijacking this thread. Please feel free to move to another location. I looked and didn't find it.

Thanks

Ken

I have been thinking what about finding a crop lease and having a plowday and I can donate the watermelons to local homeless shelters and food pantries.

  For a driving skill game one that the American Motorcycle Association used 60 years ago or some modification may work. On a Harley 74 it was a challenge to push a 55 gallon barrel 50 yards with the front wheel. Is there a GT variant.  Do you have videos or demonstrations for the games you have chosen. I'm sure I would  enjoy your show but it is a bit far.   Don

There is one where you push a ball with the front tires. Need to dig a hole for a bucket to put  the ball in though.

That is the one I forgot to add to the list and Brian mentioned it.
