We will soon see the end of 2019 and welcome in 2020. 2019 was definitely a difficult year; lots of wet fields, delayed planting and later in the summer near drought conditions then early snow and frost. It is mid November and corn dryers are running hard with corn moisture running in the mid twenty’s. We can only hope that 2020 will return to more seasonable conditions.
There are still plenty of 2020 calendars for sale, they make great gifts and stocking stuffers, all profits go directly toward the scholarship program. Speaking of the scholarship program, learn more in the newsletter and on the web page, firstname.lastname@example.org and go the TAC scholarship page. Do not let this opportunity pass those by that are eligible; it is for our members and their families.
The 2020 Allis Connection annual membership banquet is April 4th 2020 will be once again at the Ox Yoke Inn, in Amana, IA. It is always a good time to renew friendships and start new ones. Doors open at 5:30PM and serving to begin at 6:00PM. We will discuss changing the time for future membership meetings and introduce the 2020 Hall of Fame inductee. It is another year and that brings elections for three of our Directors, the three-year terms for Mike Anderson, Dale Heintz and Skip Welte will be up this April. Please get in touch with me or any of our directors with prospective members names so that we might contact them.
It is time to start planning for another show season even better than 2019. One of the earliest get togethers is the Missouri Allis-Chalmers Club’s 9th annual Swap Meet held at the Lathrop Antique Show grounds in Lathrop, Missouri on Friday and Saturday, March 6-7, 2020 8 AM to 5 PM. If you are working on a project and need parts or you have parts you want to sell or trade this is a great place to begin. Vendors from all over the Midwest and further will be in attendance. No fees are charged to vendors and entry is free. For information look in this newsletter, old Allis News or go to www.moacclub.com.

Your fellow members really enjoy seeing and hearing about others with common interests.
