International Harvester Collectors of Indiana Chapter 7

Winter 2017
     Another season has past us by and we’re moving into the grips of winter which, is suppose to a cold one this year.  I hope you have plenty of heat this winter in your shop  to get those projects completed for the shows next year.  I know I have spent a lot of time making memories using my restored IH equipment this summer.  You can see the videos on YouTube: Farmall 350 baling hay and Farmall 350 and IH 1PR picking corn.   
     Congratulations to our newly elected director Jim Yoars and reelected directors Ben Chestnut and Norman Jackson during our third quarter meeting in Lanesville.  If you missed the state show hosted by the Lanesville Heritage Festival you missed a great one.  Thanks to them for being such a great host for International Harvester Collectors.
     Congratulations also goes to our scholarship winners for 2017-2018: Jake McCormick of Carlisle (Purdue University) and Brett VanNatta of Falmouth (Hobart Institute of Welding Technology) we wish them great success in their education and careers.
     On a disappointing note, our Plow Day was rained out this year at the Bob DeVault Farms in Lafayette.  Thanks Bob for your wiliness to host this event again.
     Our winter meeting will be held on Sunday January 28th with lunch at noon with the meeting to follow.  The location this year will be the Blue Bird Restaurant, Morristown, on Main Street. 
     The International Harvester Collectors National Winter Convention will be held on March 8 – 10, 2018 in Branson, Missouri host by IHC Missouri Chapter 1 see you there.

     The Red Power Round Up will be in Montgomery, Alabama on June 13 – 16, 2018.  These events look to be really good this time around in different parts of IHC country. 
     Our State Show will be in Brookville, on September 27 – 30, 2018, hosted by the Franklin County Antique Machinery Association.  Many thanks to them for agreeing to host our State Show again.
