Farm Science Review

Sept 17, 18 and 19 found Buckeye Oliver Collectors at the BIG SHOW.  If you have ever been to the Farm Science Review you know what I mean.  Outside of London OH a small town is erected devoted to everything agriculture and it is pretty impressive.  If you have been there then you know that at the east end of the show is a large area where the antique tractor clubs have lots of nice machines on display.  And that’s where Buckeye Oliver Collectors had the nicest display of them all. Centered around our big tent, which has turned out to be a good investment, we had 21 tractors, a nice mixture with three high crops, couple of front wheel assists, a Hart Parr, a 66 roller, an HG with cultivators, three tractors with plows attached and one with a mower, five Oliver garden tractors, and 3 pedal tractors.  Inside the tent we had a nice display case with toys, our raffle items, lots of Oliver merchandise which proved to be pretty popular, and a good many chairs which due to the hot sunny weather always had friends sitting in them relaxing with an ice cold bottle of water.  We had a successful three days at FSR.  We started with a grassy field and the set up and tear down doesn’t just happen.  Many thanks and blessings go to all who helped and to those who brought equipment.  The tractors and equipment were displayed by Jim Kline, Dennis Baker, Mark Smith, Lynn Smith, Don Kopp, Bob Kopp, Larry Kopp, Larry Mayer, Bob Kline, Mike Salyers, Steve Guider, Jan Huck, John Parker, Dave Malas, Dave Miller, Melvin Wengerd, Atlee Hershberger, Tom Weaver, Wayne Groweg, Larry Boellner, Bill Reno, and Roger Diehl.  We thank God for the safe travel of all our members who showed up.  As our year winds down we look forward to the Fall Banquet Nov 9th where we can gather under the sign of OLIVER.
