The second annual Buckeye Farm Antiques, Inc. Show, which was held at the Auglaize County Fairgrounds, Wapakoneta, Ohio, was an even bigger success than last year's. The show more than doubled, as 248 tractors were on display. Approximately 50 of these were this year's feature tractor, Allis Chalmers. 208 gas engines and three steam engines were also on display.

One of this year's new activities was the tractor rodeo, held on Friday and Saturday evenings. This contest matched tractor driver skills in wagon backing, hay rake maneuverability, and slow race.

Many items were sold at the auction on Saturday afternoon. Eleven antique tractors and many other various farm related antiques were on the auction block. Thanks to Dennis Kohler, who donated his auction services.

Also on Saturday afternoon, a lumberjack show was held. The lumberjack show matched skills in log sawing and axe throwing.

An antique tractor pull was held on Sunday afternoon. The popularity of this event was demonstrated by almost 100 tractors participating.

In operation at this year's show was the club's U.S. Standard corn husker-shredder. Also in operation was a sawmill and shingle mill.

Many thanks to all who donated time and capital funds to make this year's show such a success. The 1992 show, which will be held on May 22, 23, and 24, will feature Case tractors. Hope to see everybody there.
