Well folks, it’s finally summer here in Ederville, fall is around the corner and then show time. Lots happening this year, BIG things! We are always trying to make improvements, grow and become the best show on the east coast. We are hoping this will be our best show yet!
Before we get to the details of this year’s show, let me take the time first to say thank you to all those that come and volunteer. We are so thankful to have so many people that join us in making this show what it is. Ken and I want to thank our families for their support and help. We love you all!
Ok here is what’s new this year……Antique Caterpillar Machinery Owners Club will be here with the 2013 ACMOC National Show. And Auman Auctions will here be here for an auction! We are so excited to be hosting this new addition to our show.

He would love to hear from you.
We welcome back C & A Auction on Saturday November 2nd (auction starts at 9:30). If you love antiques this is the auction to be at! They have been with us since our second show and we have been going to their auction house for years. Some of our most unique antiques have come from their sales. They are the best for having unique and good quality items. So if you are looking for something different you don't want to miss this auction! Carson also takes consignments and is ready to list them for you. He'll be here Friday with his crew setting up and can help you with anything you need.
