  1. Chapter 6 State Show

    Todays picture has a little bit of a twist. I had to climb this hill to get today's pictures. I was told the height of the hill was 350 to 400 feet. Veiw from the top of the hill: Somewhere inside the race track is my camper This was the first year that Fairfield County Antique Tractor Club had their show at the fairgrounds. Needless to say it was a huge success. Big thanks goes out to the Fairfield County Antique Tractor Club for hosting Chapter 6's state show.

  8. NW Ohio plow day

    I drove my H and little genius plow to the plow site earlier this evening. I did a round to see if I remembered how to plow with a big tractor and plow (been 37 years) . Going down I stop several times to fine tune the plow. Had to plow 25 to 30% in low gear because it pulled too hard. Wish my plow had 12 inch bottoms....using 14 inch bottoms
  9. NW Ohio Plow Day

    Planning to be there with my H and plow if the parts come in Tuesday.
  10. NW Ohio Plow Day

    I live 4-5 miles from plow day site. I had only 2 inches so far. 5 miles south of me had 5 inches of rain overnight.
  11. RPRU 2021

    Chapter 6 had some discussion at the last membership meeting about doing a round up.
  12. RPRU 2021

    The grounds was suggested for the 2013 and 2006 round up. There is more to hosting a round up than the Red Power Round Up site. You need good hotels and restaurants in the area. You need to check with the local convention business bureau for information on restaurants and hotels in the area. The next Chapter 6 meeting is August 19 at the Fairfield County Fairgrounds in Lancaster, Ohio. Bring your suggestion to the meeting and be ready to get involved.
  13. RPRU 2021

    Canfield Fairgrounds may or may not be a good place to have a show. Need several other things beside a fairgrounds-rooms, food and a Chair Person(s) that lives close to the grounds. Not sure what Canfield Fair Grounds has in the area. I was one of the Co-Chairs for the 2013 RPRU in Lima. I was making 2-3 trips a month to the fairground in Lima. That was a 40 to 50 mile round trip each time. Best thing anyone can do if you have a possible place for a round up is to get involved besides bringing a display or look at what someone else brings. As a Co-Chair of a round up I spent close to 4 years help putting together the 2013 RPRU in Lima. I didn't get to see the 2013 show or the 2 shows before the 2013 show. You will have to deal with the heat and humidity if you hold a RPRU show in Ohio the last week of June or the month of July. The last weekend of June is the thresher's show in Wauseon, Ohio. That show will hurt attendance for any round up in the Ohio, Indiana and Michigan area. Did the fairgrounds count the multi day passes each time they walk thru the gate?
  14. Who was in 4H ?

    I was in 4H starting when I was 9 thru my 17th birthday. I did wood working, showed rabbits, small engines and welding projects. I was a small engine judge at the Ohio State Fair for 10 years.
