Antique Machinery Club SHOW AT ROCKY FORK LAKE
4689 Murray Comer Road, Fayetteville, Ohio 45118.
We know we have one terrific club but when we elevate the temperature to a record-shattering 102 degrees not to mention all those readings from barn-side thermometers of 108-110 degrees, WELL!
The Highland County Antique Machinery Club held its 4th annual gathering on June 24-26 at beautiful Rocky Fork Lake near Hillsboro, Ohio.
The days were hot, the evenings warm, the comradery strong.
Gas engines, approximately 100, were putt-putting away UNDER THE SHADE TREES! The tractors-orange, red, gray, green-were gleaming and shining in the sunlight. How can each of 90 tractors have its own personality? Watch the parade and see!
Popcorn, peanuts, hot dogs, ice cream, pork tenderloin, soft drinks, etc. made for tasty munching.
Musical entertainment was provided by the Senior Citizens Sunshine Band, Country Knights, and United Country.
Tractor pulls, sled balancing, crack the egg, church services, afghan raffle, basket weaving, blacksmithing, tool displays, a toy tractor collection, and arts and crafts rounded out the fun-filled weekend.
The club members were proud of the new loading/unloading dock that several of the men constructed this year. It even had a big bouquet of flowers at one end to make things more festive!
Caution: Adults At Play was a sign posted near the tractor display. That probably summed up the show. After all, we come to play with our toys and we hope that others will come and share our fun.
