Iowa Summer Massey show

The Iowa Chapter of MCA will hold it's annual show and get together on Aug 11 & 12 in conjunction with the Antique Engine and Power show 1/2 mile east of Fredericksburg, Ia.  Fredericksburg is about 35 miles north of Waterloo.  Contact Kurt Kelsey, Iowa President 641-640-0080 or Roger Burkhart, show chairman  563-920-8522 for more info.
 
We have a block of rooms reserved till July 20 for just under $65 at the Southgate Inn in New Hampton, Ia.  Call 641-394-4145 for reservations and info.  This is the closest motel and is about 12 mi from the show field.
 
The Iowa Chapter is planning a meeting and supper at "the Pub at The Pinicon" on Saturday eve.  This is a nice restaurant just across the parking lot from the motel.  The food is good and the prices reasonable.  I will need some type of head count , the sooner the better.
 
We had a good show and turnout last year at Belmond and I'm hoping to see more of you this year at Fredericksburg.
 
The following weekend is the National Massey Expo near Baraboo, Wi.  I am going with my Challenger and will set up a sunshade and our Iowa Banner, so I hope some of you will be there also.
 
Thanks!!
 
Kurt Kelsey, Iowa President

RE:Iowa Summer Massey show

Good luck with your show in Iowa Kurt and we look forward to seeing some photographs, expect you will get a good show of U frame tractors from just up the road in Sumner????

Glad to hear you are getting organised with your sun shade for Baraboo,  it is my next show and so far this year the five shows I have exhibited at here in UK have all been rained out, so hope to break that curse over your side of the pond.

Malcolm.

RE:Iowa Summer Massey show

Hi Kurt &Malcolm
  I was helping get ready for the show last weekend. We finished combining a few acres of windrowed oats with other color red machinery. Several wagons were loaded with oat bundles for thrashing at the show. The straw was raked and baled. This oat stubble field will be used for plowing.So bring your plows with your Massey tractors if you would like to plow a little. If you don't have a plow and would like to plow I will have models 26-27-28&9B plows at Fredericksburg Just let me know. I am not sure how the plowing will work Its SOOOOOOO!!! dry the ground is like cement
.It's not to often you have an Iowa show in your back yard so I'll make sure i have a couple U frame there.
See you at Baraboo
Dennis

I went to the Marshalltown show today and talked to several MCA members who are planning to come to Fredericksburg next weekend.  If you are coming and have not talked to me, please do so.  Thanks!!  Kurt
