2018 Greenville Show

MAID RITE, no I’m not talking about how Oliver Farm equipment was put together. But rather I’m referring to a small extremely busy sandwich shop in downtown Greenville. If anyone who attended the show knows what I’m talking about, then we know about the dozen cars lined up at the drive thru, the never ending line of folks going out the door and the unique sandwiches that had some people at the Oliver tent going twice a day. A fun memory from a fun show.

We had a great turnout in people and equipment with over one hundred Oliver pieces there. With a fairground as big as the one in Greenville there was room for all colors and all colors of tractors were there. As neither my wife or I had ever been to Greenville we didn’t bring the golf cart. Regrets! Actually our show started on Friday morning with a tour of the Kitchen Aid factory on the north side of Greenville. I’m sure many many bakers have a Kitchen Aid mixer and this is where they are made. I do enjoy touring factories that make good products in America. Made in USA, we never get tired of that. After our tour it was a short drive downtown to the Kitchen Aid factory outlet and it was there we were told about the Maid Rite shop. So lunch was on.

The rest of Friday was spent hanging out at a very busy Oliver tent and watching tractor and truck pulls in the evening. Saturday was a good day highlighted by an awesome lunch provided by the club and open to all Buckeye Oliver Collector members. We had 44 members in attendance followed by a short meeting by Larry. The rest of the day was spent enjoying the show and the crowd at the Oliver tent where along with strong merchandise sales we welcomed a dozen new members to our club. Buckeye Oliver Collectors is a growing club and if you are a member we look forward to seeing you at a club show or function. You will not be disappointed.
