Who Parks Where?

Now that it is the time of year when most engine shows are over and the club members are busy organizing for next year's show, I have some 'new business' that all clubs should discuss, 'Who Parks Where?'

You have hit and miss engines, tractors, steam engines. This is what the show is all about. Right? Okay, flea markets and crafts have been also included, they make money for the club and X amount of dollars per space. Fine and dandy!

Now, for the parking. It really is not hard to understand. Tractors are all together, steam has their area, hit and miss should have theirs, and the same for flea markets.

If people are selling items and it are not related to the engines, tractors or antique equipment, then they should be in the flea market. Plastic mail boxes, for example, have nothing to do with show equipment.

The reason I am writing this is to let clubs know what you are doing to your exhibitors. We were harassed for five hours by two club members at a show until they finally got smart, because I threatened to name their club in this letter. Yes, we were being stubborn, too, but it was the principal of the thing. We were in an engine area with engines, not in the flea market with engines.
