International Harvester Collectors of Indiana Chapter 7
I will start out with reminders of upcoming events and deadlines. Scholarship application deadline is December 1st. Any member or family member of ICH Indiana Chapter 7 may apply. We will be awarding two $500 scholarships this year.
Plow day was held on October 10th. We had great weather for a change, and a good turnout. Thank you to all who participated.
It was an unusual summer. Weather was very good for show activities around the state. I hope everyone enjoyed the mild temperatures as we brace for winter. We are still looking for a host for the 2017 Fall Show. If your local club would like to host Chapter 7 in 2017 please let us know.
We are hosting the 2017 International Harvester Collectors Winter Convention at the Clarion Hotel in Columbus at the junction of I-65 and IN 46. We will need a lot of help from the membership to do a great job. If you would like to help let a director know. Our early planning will begin late this year or early next year. We will need flyers put together before the 2016 Winter Convention in Illinois. Please share your talents with us.
We are looking for a Special Guest Speaker for the Saturday night banquet. If you have suggestions or know of someone who would like to do this please let me know.
We send out a special thank you to the Greensburg Power of the Past for hosting out State Show. There was a large display of IH equipment and trucks at the show. Check out the pictures in the Photo Album. Thanks to all of you who attended.
We had several members in action at the Half Century of Proress Show in Rantoul, IL. Pictures from the event are in the Photo Album. Matt Thieme had his new 2 row 234 picker sheller on a cab tractor, the only one there. What a great time we had!
Hope to see you soon at our activities.
