We recently received word from the International Harvester Collectors that the 4th annual Red Power Round Up of the IH Collectors will be held September 9-12, 1993 at Boonville, Missouri, in conjunction with the Missouri River Valley Steam Engine Association's 30th anniversary show.
Show planners expect over 500 IH exhibits to be at the Roundup.
The IH Collectors Club was formed in July 1990 to preserve the history of International Harvester Co., and began with 200 members. The Club has grown to include 2300 members, and the group hopes that this year's Roundup will be the largest gathering of IH equipment, tractors and memorabilia in the U.S.
This past February, the annual winter convention at Elgin, Illinois drew about 1000 people, including several IH retirees. Attractions included vendors offering toys, parts, literature and other IH related items, plus a sheet metal repair clinic. This convention was hosted by Chapter #2, whose board of directors thanks all who attended.
For more information on the Club, contact Clyde Berkshire, Box 237, Royal Center, IN 46978, phone 219-643-3115, or write to IH Collectors, RR 2, Box 286, Winamac, IN 46996.
