The Farm Science Review was held September 18 – 20 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, OH. The Buckeye Oliver Collectors were last there in 2013 and we were excited to return. Our new lot was excellent with plenty of room to have a great tractor display and our new tent. One of the first things people would say is that they could see our green and white tent from the parking lot and knew it was the BOC area.
Tractors on display were from Jim Kline, Dennis Baker, Mark Smith, Lynn Smith, Bill Yaple, John Parker, Jerry McBride, Ken Lutz, Tom Scothorn, Mike Salyers, John Martin and Wayne Groweg. From the Hart-Parr 70 Orchard to the Oliver 25 Airport tractor to front wheel assists we had a great showing of Olivers tractors; and three Oliver boat motors on display from Larry Elliott. What a great display to look at.
Even though there are things that can be improved on for this show it seemed like the tent area was always full of Oliver enthusiasts and a lot of great tractor conversations and stories being told. While the guys were talking the ladies were busy selling raffle tickets, club merchandise and taking memberships. It is unbelievable the new memberships for this year. This makes for a very exciting time for the club.
