i know i'll be there. There's about four or five people from this forum whom I plan to meet for the first time there.

it's only my 2nd trip to Wauseon, but we're bringing the camper this time & staying for the whole show. I've been counting the days for at least a month now.

Beth,
I am flying Vancouver -Detroit on Thursday. Any suggestions for accomodation near Wauseon? Any plans for a Stakers get together? I suspect you have ordered good weather. The lest time I went it was a fridged mud bath.
Cheers George.

Hi George!

I've ordered up 75 degree days with sunshine and quick, dust control showers each night.

I have a connection for a room. I'll send you a PM.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you our toys. The 32 is staying home, but we might be able to arrange a tour.

The list of engines and prairie tractors is spectacular (for Ohio). Current expectations include: 40-80 Avery; 40-80 Minnie; 40-80 Russell; 40-72 Case; 40-70 Flour City; 35-70 Minnie; 30-60 & 22-45 Aultman Taylors; 30-60 Pioneer; 30-60 E & S Oil Pulls; 30-60 Hart Parr; 30-60 Mogul; 30-60 Titan; Wallis Bear; 25-50 Avery; 20-40 Case; 20-40 Oil Pull; 20-35 Flour City; 18-36 Little Oak; 15-30 Gas Pull & 14-28 Oil Pull. All subject to change & correction, but an impressive list for this non-tractor person.

Leo Bard will have the only operational Leader; John will have his 110 Case; and many more Minnies; Port Hurons; Advances, Bakers, Keck Gonnerman; Advance Rumelys; Russells; a 20 hp Waterloo; Fricks; Reeves; Aultman Taylors; Nichols & Shepard; Peerless Q; Gaar Scott; a Road Locomotive; American LaFrance Fire Engine; 1/2 scale & 1/4 scales plus whatever else shows up.

15 days and counting....

Beth

We can always try to plan another Stakker dinner. The first ones were fun, but then people really weren't participating or bringing food for the potluck. Mr Brewer will be happy to announce the place if we can determine it.

I plan on being there.
Although I don't have steam, I have a hit/miss along with pre 1950 garden tractors that I display.
I've been going now for about 15 yrs and displaying for 10.
Hoping for good weather!

If folks want to get together, I vote we get the Junior Livestock's Pork sausage sandwich and eat.

My brother is bringing his newly acquired rock crusher (before & after paint,) so watch for noise and dust. His plan is to use the shovel to load the rock into the crusher...should be fun to see who is coordinated enough to hit the slot.

Now that is a neat pair of toys. I see it is a jaw crusher but how does the chain of buckets work? Looking forward to this demo.
Beth, I called the Holliday Inn to see if their conference room was available for us to have a Stakkers Meet and Greet It is booked and not available. Is there some place on the grounds we can get together say Friday eve after dinner ?
Cheers George
