First National Meet for Ford/Fordson Collectors

| December/January 1992

2277 Berry Road, Amelia, Ohio 45102

The first National Meet for Ford/Fordson collectors and enthusiasts was held at the Ohio Valley Antique Machinery Show at Georgetown, Ohio. It was truly a national event, with delegates from Alaska to Florida, Minnesota to New Jersey.

On August 15, a meeting was held for all those interested in forming an organization. Topics discussed were keeping the registry active, forming an association dedicated to the preservation and restoration of Ford/Fordson tractors and equipment, holding an annual national show and meet, publishing a newsletter, and planning for organizational structure and by-laws.

A steering committee of 12 delegates was formed to obtain a site for the second annual National Show and Meet in 1993, and to investigate and direct the association. Ohio Valley Antique Machinery Association has now handed over the registry to this committee.

To document this special occasion, a four foot panoramic photo of the delegates and their machines was taken. Ed Johnson of ABN-Radio & TV Network filmed the event to appear on the syndicated television program Agri-Country.
