I missed the antram swap meet due to financial issues, but with the new job, I think i can get to the Richards swap meet beginning of Oct. Anyone have any info/links?


Thanks in advance!

Oct 2 at the WV Farm Museum just north of Pt. Pleasant, WV. I'll be talking to Richard tomorrow and confirm if he still figures on Saturday only.

Is this as big of an event as the Antram meet. I live about 6 hours away and would like to go unless it's just 5 to 10 people going.

Even if it is only 5 people going, they might be the 5 nicest people you've ever met!
You know, your right. I think I will go either way. I had a great experience last week. There was a gravely advertised in the Gravely Gazette so I called and a lady described the tractor so I said I would come and look at it. she wanted $375 for it. It was a 64 L8. She told me, her dad, who had just died, was a Gravely Club member. They way she descibed his affection for his tractor and the immculante way he took care of that L8 ( he also had a G ) was what I'm begining to expect from most all Gravely Club members. Someone else, I think it was Richard from Richards Lawn & Garden, told me the club members and most any gravely enthusiist were a unique group. I really haven't meet any of the members because I've only been a member for a little over a year and haven't been able to go to any functions yet but I'm anxious to. Can't wait till next years mow in.

Now that is a great story, good luck with the new machine.
Wish I could go, I went to the mowin this year. It was alot of fun, next time I'm not bringing any kids if I can avoid it. They had fun but got tired really quick and we had to leave before I was ready. Ed

Talked to Richard on Friday and Richard and Jamie on Monday. Looks like atleast 50 people with Gravely goodies are expected on Saturday and unknown on Sunday. I'll be there as will a yahoo member from NE Ohio.

What time does it start and do you need to register?
No registration needed. People show up there starting before 0900. If you are one of Richard's customers you should be getting either a phonecall or a letter in the mail.

I may or may not be there.

I just scored an MA-210 blower, I'll post this in another thread when I get it, and it has to be picked up in Point Pleasant. My initial thought was great! I'll leave nice and early, pick up the blower, and then mosey on over to the swap meet.

Then, my best friend called me and told me he blew the engine in his Jeep and asked if I would help him pull the old and put in the new. I cannot say no, he is always there when I need a hand and he want to do it Saturday.

I'll just have to wait and see if he gets an engine this week. If so, it will probably be Sunday to pick up the blower, if not, I very well may see some of you on Saturday.

Couldn't go anywhere even if I wanted. We are under a flood warning and Tropical Storm Warning. Looks like my chipper may have more work to do before we can leave.

And still sick on top of that, too. Don, I feel for you. I really hope that everything comes out OK for you.
