Thanks for the pictures Carl. I made the trip on Friday (185 miles one way and a border crossing) and was very disappointed in the turnout. There seems to be more stuff there in your pictures. Not to be too critical but they should not advertise a three day show when there is very little there when the gates open Friday at noon. Also every tractor there had weight brackets on it. I really think this is more of a pulling club than an antique tractor and machinery club. Thanks again for your pics as they are appreciated....Dave
I wish you'd looked me up. I was there all day.
I agree 100% with your criticism. What was there Friday was club member tractors, and there were few visitors. The guys with the engines spent most of the day prepping the pulling track so the engines didn't even get run much. Friday evening and Saturday morning is when the other stuff rolled in. There wasn't anything for people interested in pulling either because that didn't start until 6PM.
Sunday was worse. Almost everything left Saturday evening and first thing Sunday morning. The last food vendor left at noon and our own information booth closed shortly after. The few people that wandered in seemed pretty disappointed. At least we didn't charge admission on Sunday.
I was debating, as the newest member, whether to say anything to the President about my thoughts. If you don't mind I'll pass along your comments.
My apologies for my part in wasting your day.
