Eastern NC Ch. 37 of the International Harvester Collectors Club will have its annual show, hosted by the Got to be NC Festival at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds May 17-19 in Raleigh. For more information on Chapter 37 go to http://www.ihcc37.com For more information on the Got to be NC Festival go to http://gottobencfestival.com/

PS
Each year Ch. 37 selects a Tractor of the Year, which is the "covergirl" on our club calendar and is the "star" of our show. This year my "pretty" Super A was chosen.

Fantastic, Al! I am hoping to be at the show, and look forward to seeing your "pretty" SA there. It DOES look good! :D

I may look into bringing mine and/or my Cub...we'll see. Don't know the process for bringing one, but will check it out.

Dale,

The IH Collectors website has a registration form you can download. If you are not affiliated with any club the Got to be NC website should have a registration form as well.

Everyone, this festival is really nice because it is not just about tractors (Although that is my favorite!). There are all kinds of interesting activities for the whole family.

Day 1 is behind us. Saw Dale F and Buster38 from a distance in the parade of power. Little warm but a nice day. More pics tomorrow. Chapter 37 has a huge display of Cubs this year....

We had two rows of just Cubs. If I am counting right there were 15 Cubs in two rows and some more on the outskirts of our show area.

The green KB 11 belongs to a good friend of mine. The red Loadstar would be a sweet tractor hauler for not-so-long distances.

Will try to post some more later. My Super A is safe and sound back home and I am tired of playing "Raleigh tag!"
