6th Annual North Central Indiana Meet & Greet

Recommended Posts

Attention all of you Horse-aholics!

6th Annual North Central Indiana Meet & Greet is October 3rd!!!

I look forward to hosting this event every year.  I greatly appreciate the support that many of you have shown in the past.  All of you make this a very special event and I can't wait to see all of you again in a couple of months!

Remember that we hold one of the best raffles around with 100% of the proceeds sent to St. Baldrick's Foundation in memory of the late Max Nunn!  P.s. His tractor will be on display again this year!  Thanks to Paul and Sharon Iossi.  I need your help once again.......prizes are needed for the raffle.  You all have been soooo supportive in the past and I hope you would be willing to chip in again.

With the wet summer, I don't know if the beans will be off the field for us to plow.  I am keeping my fingers crossed as always so we can turn some soil.  I will definitely keep you posted.

Food will be available for purchase again from our friends, the Millers.  If you have been here before you know the pie is amazing!

I will be working on new t-shirt designs in the near future.  Please hold your orders until I am all squared away with this.  I will set up a seperate post once I have my ducks in a row.

I am hoping that will be the first year that we break in to the 200+ tractor mark.  I hope you are ready to bring a nice load to show.

We will once again have a swap meet area.  Again we will start a separate thread on what people are bringing and/or looking for.

I do have a few costs I incur from putting on a show of this size.  I will have a donation box out for those that feel compelled to chip in a few bucks.  All of the help we receive is greatly appreciated!

So this is just a kickoff.....mark October 3rd on your calendars.  The show wouldn't be the same without you!

Set-up can begin at noon on Friday the 2nd.

Craig, where else can you have this much fun besides Arendtsville?  Would love for you to load up a crew and head on out!

I'm just getting started in WH collecting. I've owned my 857 for over 20 years but just acquired a couple more tractors. I would like to know more information about the show. Sounds like a good time.

JD we have an amazing time each year.  You are not too far away and I can promise it will be worth the trip.  Many great folks and a good variety of machines to drool over.  I hope you will be able to join us.

To get a little glimpse of shows from the past few years, check out these threads found here:

I'm planning on coming down. This will be my first show.......period. I've never been to any WH show before let alone yours, so I am really looking forward to it. Not sure what to bring. And by the way, your shop looks outstanding. What a great toy box!

Thank you!  I am glad you are planning on making the trip.  We always have a fantastic time with a great group of people in attendance.  You are free to bring whatever machine(s) you would like.  They don't have to be restored.....we welcome any condition and any brand.  The more the merrier!

FYI for everyone...............talked to the local farmer yesterday and we may just have a field to plow in across the street.  The beans are progressing nicely and he is thinking if all goes as planned that they will be off by the time of the show.  More plow time!!!!!!!

Thanks Terry!

We would love to have you.  It seems pretty quiet lately........I am keeping my hopes up that we have another great turnout.  I am just hoping that so many folks know the location and the date.  Whatever happens, I can guarantee we will have a nice time with friends!

My tractors are hardly show quality but they are workers.  Without the fleet of Wheel horse D's or cabin in michigan would still be brush covered forest.   I will try to load them up though.

They don't have to be show quality, and they don't have to be red.  We don't discriminate against any of the old machinery.  The more to look at the better.  It is nice to sit back and appreciate the design of each of these machines and hear some of the stories that go along with them.

Don't have to be Red?  That's good, cause our horses are purple and Pink now. The Wife now has "Sparkling" Gramma horse, the black hood, now sparkly hood type.  Might have to bring a Speedex too, THAT is red!

Duke in SW Michigan turned me on to this, the family just might be coming down, if plans all come together.  I'm sure it'll be an awesome time, but I don't have a hitch to pull my 1 bottom plow.  Anyone willing to borrow me one?  I've got a slot hitch myself, but my hitch pin surprisingly slides in and out real nice.  Would love to help pull up some dirt with "put put"

I am sure someone might have something to get you squared away the day of the show.  But hopefully someone will chime in and get you squared away before the big day.  Should be another fun time again this year!
