The chapter voted to again participate in the Farm Science Review. The show will be held September 22-24, 2020. We have signed a contract to have the same 100' X 150" space we had in 2019. We saw a significant increase in foot traffic through the display in 2019 compared to previous years. The merchandise trailer enjoyed good sales all three days, and Chapter 6 garnered several new members.
Last year's display consisted of 37 units brought to the show by 23 chapter members. It is estimated that there is space for an additional 8-10 units. The goal for 2020 is to have 40-45 units on display. Every member is welcome to be a part of this year's show. Units do not necessarily need be total restorations, but please focus on bringing things that are clean and in good condition.
In addition to tractors, implements and trucks, which we had last year, we would like to add a display of stationary engines this year. Both hit & miss and regular stationary power units from McCormick, Deering, or International would be welcome. Owners are allowed to demonstrate their operation during the show. We also welcome ANY items produced by International Harvester.
We will again be preparing printed stories on each unit and they will be displayed on posts in front of each unit.
To help you plan for the show, the following information should be helpful:
• Display items can be brought in in Sunday, Sept. 13 or Monday, Sept. 14.
• Trailers may be left on site during the show.
• The grounds will be patrolled by deputies 24/7 beginning a week before the show and continue until a week after the show.
• Exhibits will be released on the final day of the show beginning at 4:00 P.M.
We have begun signing up exhibitors, so be prepared to commit to bring items to the Farm Science Review.
