Pioneer Village Old Machinery Days

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.
