Hi All
I wanted to start a discussion revolving around all of the things planned for the Gather of the Orange Coming Home Again planned for this September in Union Grove Wi.
The is a Bus trip scheduled for Wednesday To the Richfield Historical Society (1850's Grist Mill with EP Allis equipment) and The Dilg Museum in Gurnee Illinois for lunch. This will be a all day trip full of many stories and lies don't miss it.
Thursday Tractor ride from the plant site in West Allis  and to the show grounds in Union Grove the ride length is about 35 miles. We will be going past the Golf Coarse and the original proving grounds, then stopping at the most recent proving grounds for lunch and discussion, before going on to the show grounds in Union Grove.
Our show grounds are quite large we will have room for anything you want to bring, we have a building dedicated to the feature that is large than 100' x 200' I don't remember the exact size here at work. The building is locked every evening and unlocked at a specific time making it perfect for the collections that otherwise done get shown because of security, like wise it is a good place for vendors to sell there wares.
There will be a large Allis flea market area for all of the trailers full of goodies that are to big to put in the building.
There also is a banquet planned  for Friday September 13
Additional details can be gotten from our Website Fall Harvest
or see us on face book

I'm a bit confused. The top of the page says the GOTO is October  11 - 15, 2019 and your post says September. Which is right? I want to make plans to attend. Thank you, Joe

Just living the dream, with an occasional nightmare!!!

Just  a reminder to  the Allis family, plans are rapidly progressing. a few new items are the commemorative belt buckles that will be available, and T-shirt like at most shows. There will  be a link on or website for both the buckles and T-shirts orders, as always the quantity's are limited. Place your orders by printing the information of the website and get it mailed in. 
There has been a lot of interest in the Bus Trip, the ride from the plant with the stop at the proving grounds for lunch, and the banquet
If you are interested in any of the special items or event that are planned please get your reservations sent in. We need to know how many people will be joining us. 
See you in September

Question about the Thursday ride from West Allis to the proving grounds and then on to Union Grove.  Will there be an area for staging tractors the night before the ride in West Allis?  (hopefully secure)  I'd like to drop off a tractor or two the night before, such that I can meet and pickup a couple of more tractors at the Lake Express Ferry later that evening.  I'm trying to only trailer a pair of tractors around the tip of Lake Michigan/Chicago and then meet up and haul the other tractors that cross on the ferry to the ride. 

Also, I signed up early to participate in this ride, when will we know if we are registered to ride and from which starting point?
