Richland Creek Antique Power Association
5th Annual Antique Engine/Tractor Show
and Pull - Weekend of Nov. 3, 2000 - Saluda, SC
We hadn't had any rain to speak of in five or six weeks, so of course on the Saturday of this pull, it rained. Not a downpour, but just enough to be aggravating and really shorten the pull distances. Farmalls and Olivers were very well-represented, which surprised us, because we were in the heart of John Deere country. The rain began as a light mist around 4:00 p.m., but didn't really interfere with things until about two hours later. Everyone had a great time, though, as usual. For getting around to all the exhibits, the Cub Cadet people hauler was a big hit, as was Jessie & Jamie Davis' Gator.
Unconcerned by the noise of the pull just over the hill, this child of a Civil War re-enactor enjoyed some quality fishing time on Saturday afternoon.
In addition to the pull, this weekend event featured antique engines, cars & trucks; a steam tractor; threshing machine; craft booths; wagon rides; planer; old-fashioned Sunday services; saw mill; kids pedal tractor race; hay baler; slow tractor race; shingle mill; border collie dog demonstration; Civil War battle re-enactment; and camping (hookups available).
