2018 show

     September 1st-3rd 2018 will be the next show for our group at the Cedar Valley Engine Club.  We will be hosting the Iowa Cornbelt Oliver Collectors for their Summer Show of 2018.  We have had the honor of hosting them a few times in the past and have always had a great showing of antique farm equipment centering on the pride of Charles City, Iowa in the OLIVER FARM EQUIPMENT COMPANY.  The 2018 calendar year will mark the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the lightweight water cooled Hart-Parr Tractors with the "New Hart-Parr" also known as the 12-25.  2018 also marks the 70th Anniversary of the introduction of the "Three Beauties" in the new Fleetline Series of Oliver farm tractors, the 66, 77 and 88 row crop models.  For the gas engine feature we will be targeting the Fuller & Johnson line of engines from Wisconsin.

     The tractor feature does have ties close to home being that the majority of the tractors made by Hart-Parr / Oliver / White were made in the plant in Charles City, Iowa.  Local and regional pride still exists in the fine examples of collections large and small around the upper Mid-West.  We invite anyone that is interested in exhibiting at our show to bring what you can out for all to enjoy.  If you don't have a unit that falls into the feature make don't feel left out.  We would welcome any other makes to add to the show.  

     We try to make some updates each and every year to our show to keep things flowing and fresh.  Started a couple of years ago was the "Barn Talks" located at the South end of the grounds in the lower part of the barn.  In these talks have been varied topics from "History of Jello", "History of the Duesenburg Family" to "Magneto Evolution and Care".  If you have any questions about our show or group please feel free to look us up on the contacts page.  The Roseville Store is ready to welcome you to take a step back in time to see what it was like to shop in a 1940's general store.  Other varies displays are happening all throughout the grounds for you to take in.  Or even take part in if you wish.

     Like in years past, we will be having the tractor and truck pull on Saturday of the show, weather permitting.  The normal start time of it is around 10-10:30 am.  Monday after 12pm is the plowing in the North Field.
