Newsletter Editor: Stephenie Anderson Newsletter Publisher: One of the things proposed at the Binder Books annual meeting was a series of workshops on such subjects as timing mags for engines, carburetor rebuilding, electrical wiring placement, etc. These workshops could be one to two hours Chapter 30 Directors: long and possibly have more than one per day. The question is…how far Larry Severance – Director In Charge would you be willing to travel to attend? Brad Anderson These would not be at the same time as Jack Bailey the annual meeting. Please let me Dick Roberts know how you feel about this and any Ken Robison ideas you have on the subject matter or Wayne Schuh presentation of the workshops. And now, once again, I say – Be safe out there. From the President Morgan Dunn As I am writing this it is a gorgeous President spring day – in the mid 70’s. The show season is just around the corner. Everyone is working hard on projects either in the shop or around the house. This is just a reminder for everyone to think safety first in all of your endeavors. meticulous record keeping and the personal sacrifices he has made to keep this chapter on track can only be referred to as a ―labor of love‖. I also want to recognize the contributions made by our out-going Vice President, Chuck Verdon and From the “New” Newsletter Directors, Glenn Klingbeil, Vern Graham Editor and Jack Campbell.

His Secretary/Treasurer The Great Western Binder Bee Once a year, tractors, implements, trucks, stationary engines, garden tractors and more all of the same make—and no other—gather together to share our mutual history. You won’t see John Deeres, Rumleys or Caterpillars. This is a show geared (or should I say Torque Amplified) for everyone who finds it difficult to attend an all IH show in Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Tennessee or similar states back east. Welcome International Harvester owners all! We hope to see each and everyone of you at this year’s Great Western Binder Bee at Antique Powerland in Brooks, Oregon. If you weren’t there last year, don’t pass up this opportunity again. This show isn’t about how shiny your paint is or how accurately your decals are placed. Any Farmall is a good Farmall! Let’s see those rusty old implements, your collection of Cub Cadets, restored or not, an IH refrigerator or two, and I know many of you can teach us a thing or two about stationary engines. If you have a collection of IH toys, tin signs, literature and other collectibles, let’s see those too. Exhibitors with collections of memorabilia are free to exhibit (with the approval of the Binder Bee committee). A carefully Q-tipped tractor is a great thing to behold but secondary to sharing with others the rich & varied history of International Harvester and joining together for a weekend of fun. Shorty’s Boys Texas Style BBQ is returning again for your breakfast, lunch & dinner pleasure, so bring an appetite. Volunteers will be treated to a wonderfully warm & fun Potluck Dinner Friday night for those of you so inclined. Among other highlights, Bob Eckhardt will be speaking about his experiences performing ―espionage‖ for International and Ernie Bisio will be invited to provide another glimpse at his long, dedicated history selling International Light Line trucks. Randy Raschein, Sr. of Farmland Tractor has a nice surprise as well. Creed Brattain of Brattain International will be on the grounds and has implied that he may even drive a Scout himself this year. And, last but certainly not least, IH Only of Lancaster, California will be presenting their newly manufactured aluminum intake manifold for 304 and 345 engines. The event takes place the second weekend of July at Antique Powerland in Brooks, Oregon on th July 7, 8 and 9 . Take exit 263 off I-5 and head west for approximately 1/4 mile. Antique Powerland is clearly marked. Due to an exciting number of pre-registrations this year, I cannot guarantee water & power hook-ups for everyone. RV hook-ups are “first come, first serve”. Please get those reservations in early to reserve your space.

Jack Campbell Great Western Binder Bee Show Chair (among other things) NOTES FROM YOUR DIRECTORS From Larry Serverance- Director In Charge At the sanctioned IH Shows this summer there will be a director in charge of the IH Tent & memorabilia sales. Also, there will be a potluck bar-b-que dinner Saturday evening (approx. 5:30 p.m.) at the IH tent. Hopefully we will have a large attendance. It is a chance to visit with old friends and meet new acquaintances. If you have a small bar-b-que, could you please bring it along to help out? Thanks! At the Brooks Steam Up this summer, if you don’t have camping reservations already, you will have to find camping off site because they were unable to secure a site for the overflow camping. th On May 6 , Brad Anderson and I met with Alan Painter and other tractor & crawler groups that will be displaying at Brooks Steam Up this summer. IH Chapter 30 will be in the same location. All the old implements will be lined up along the west side of the truck museum and implements on the north end of our site will be moved to a different location. From Jack Bailey Jack will be the director heading up the IH Tent at the Monroe, WA show. Here’s some more information th about the show: the show is August 11, 12 & 13 this year. Camping is available on site, but no services other than outhouses are available. The show runs10-5 all days with the tractor pulls being on Saturday & Sunday only. There is breakfast served from 8-10 AM and then lunch food served from then until 5 PM. If you need more information contact Jack at email@example.com or (604) 882-8542. From Brad Anderson ―Pay to display at the Binder Bee?—Horse poop‖! That was my reaction 3 years ago. After swallowing my pride & attending the first ―show‖, I will willingly fork out the $15 pre-registration fee and attend again. Why? This is a show, well more of an IHC gathering, of those that hold & enjoy all things produced by IH in high esteem. It’s not about Tractors, Scouts or Trucks, it’s about IH, the friends and camaraderie of being together with those who have the same interest—IH. It’s about coming together, meeting new people and expanding individual knowledge into another realm of IHC. The Truck/Scout folks are open, friendly & willing to share the experience & expertise of their projects. At the same time, they are interested in MY projects & display a desire to talk about the agricultural side of IH. This ―show‖ is a win/win for all. I have attended meetings with the leadership of the IHSTO club and find their goals to be compatible with Chapter 30 By-laws, i.e; Article 1, Section 4. This is a joint venture, put on via IHSTO & Chapter 30, but IHSTO has taken the lead and fronts all the overhead costs with no financial support from Chapter 30. Those costs include, flyers, newspaper ads. BBQ dinner, exhibitor packets, leg work, as well as securing the Powerland grounds & fulfilling the requirements to do so. This costs money—a great deal of money, yet they have not asked one dime of Chapter 30. All they ask is our support, via attendance. The Binder Bee is in it’s infancy, but could with our support, become the ―Red Power Round-Up‖ of the West in the future. The problem is: How do you get started without a bucket of money & still cover the start-up expense? (Classic case of catch 22: it takes displays to attract the public & it takes the public in order to support the displays). The logical conclusion: charge exhibitors to get the thing off the ground with the stated goal of reducing or eliminating those fees in the future. I’ve looked at the numbers from last year & after subtracting the expenses from the registration fees, the IHSTO club made a grand total of $40.00. Without the registration fees they would have been in the red, the consequences of which, might leave us without this exciting & valuable event. I look at the Binder Bee as an investment—and a good one at that! CHAPTER 30/SANCTIONED SHOW SCHEDULE – 2006 DATE SHOW DIRECTOR ON SITE July 7-9 GREAT WESTERN BINDER BEE Larry, Brad & Jack B.
