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

work and dedication that my
predecessor, Bob Bennett, has put into       Tom Lundgren
this position over the past 5 years. 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
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. This issue of the newsletter
contains a pre-registration form & you can find registration forms, maps, pictures of last years
show and a lot more at www.IHSTO.org

is an additional $10.00 per night. Tent camping is an additional $5.00 per night.

You can call (503) 981-0224 for more information or email binderbee@ihsto.org

Hope to see you there!

                            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.
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
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 jackbailey@telus.net 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!
