    AJ's. Oregon Illinois

    Happening this Saturday 5/18, just west of I 39. Anyone know anything about this? I'm hoping to make it this year. Weather looks good for once, warm and unlike past years it might actually be dry for the day. Monsoons have kept me away for the past couple of years

    What is it Don? A swap meet/ show? Plow day?

    Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's obsolete!

    I've got a lot of Cubs in the barn....but I have more implements/attachments!

      GT Swap meet/ show I think. Not sure, coming here to find out more.

      Speaking of which I heard about something going on in your town along those lines later this year? What do you know?

        Yeah, every year in Oblong there is an antique tractor and engine show. They usually run some belt equipment like thrashers and balers. Lots of old hit-and-miss engines and power's up and running. Antique and older tractors, toy show, antique tractor pull.... long list of stuff. It's in August every year. I don't know this year's date, but it's usually the first or second weekend in August judt before school starts. It's a good show. Not just a lot of garden tractors, but there are some. Several vendors and a swap meet/ for sale area. If you come down let me know. I usually spend the better part of an afternoon there walking around.

          Yeah I'll let you know if I can get down there, got a couple of things going already those 1st 2 weekends in August, hope it isn't on one of those.
          On the AJ's thing all I can find are a couple of vague blurbs around the net and a couple of you tube post from past years. Looks like a pretty big tractor show and swap, most are GTs

        Ok I'm up here, dropped off my trailer full of junk at AJ's place yesterday, doing some sightseeing in NW IL today, will be there at AJ's tomorrow. The guy who runs it is a woodworker/cabinet maker, nice guy, last year they had 500+ spectators and 300+ GTs 10th annual show, mostly does FB (YUK) advertising. Says that's where it's "at".
        says he's had people from as far as the Carolinas come to this. Show, swap, plow area, rope making demo and more, claims to have activities for the wives and kids several buildings, said don't let rain run you off, lots of buildings to pile into. Looks like a pretty good food stand too.

        $5 per person to get in whether selling showing or spectating. Including your spot and/or entry of tractors.
