The eighth annual Pioneer Village Old Machinery Days, held at Ceasar's Creek Pioneer Village near Waynesville, Ohio, is scheduled for August 14, 15, and 16, 1992, the third weekend in August.

Since our first show in 1984 there have been many changes; we've tried to add a new event or display every year. Events such as tractor pulls and draft horse pulls attract audiences of all ages. Contests with tractors include: egg cracking (using tractor drawbar), belt up, slow race, quick start, and wagon backing. These provide ways to test your skill and competitiveness.

You don't have to be an exhibitor to participate in the fun and games at the show. We provide games such as watermelon eating contest, cow patty bingo, coin search in the straw stack, bale throw, and guess your best on the number of kernels in a planter seed box.

As far as exhibits go, the club has a number of its own items, all in operation, including a permanent mount Frick sawmill, a Keck Gonnerman separator, Rosenthall husker/shredder, Case stationary baler with a Wisconsin A.F.C. engine, and the latest addition, a four horse sweep (for converting horse power to belt power).

The exhibitors bringing equipment to the show number in the neighborhood of three to four hundred pieces of equipment which ranges from tractors, steam engines, gas engines, draft horses and equipment to hand tools.

To finance our show and offset expenses we sell advertising space in our handout program. This helps to pay for trophies and plaques. And we also hold a 'Haunted Village Hayride' at Halloween to meet repair, equipment purchase and operating expenses. Nevertheless, our show would not fly without a lot of hard work from our club members (who number less than 20 families), our friends, business community and our exhibitors.

Once again, our show will be August 14, 15, and 16, 1992. We hope to see you there.
