The MENA Site Selection Committee met during this year's Expo at Baraboo to review applications, hear presentations, and then select the host site for the 2016 Massey Expo. Just as a reminder, the Site Selection Committee is made of of two representatives each from the MCA, each of the 7 chapters, and the Twin Power Heritage club of Canada.
We had five very viable candidates apply to host in 2016, which will be in our "West" region.
At the end of the voting, the Steam Threshing Jamboree at Historic Prairie Village in Madison, South Dakota was selected to host in 2016. The dates will be August 26-28, 2016.
Next year we will be selecting the 2017 site, which will be back in the Central Region. SO, if you know any good shows who might be interested, please have them contact me so that I can get an application sent to them.
Just as a reminder, here are the locations and dates from 2013 through 2015:
2013 - Aug. 16-18, Paisley, Ontario, Canada
2014 - Jul 31 - Aug 3, Rushville, IN
2015 - Aug. 7-9, Chambersburg, PA
Thanks to all the committee members who attended in person, and those who submitted absentee votes who could not attend.
