I have given the boys a bit of publicity for the Ballymena trip.

And I did a bit of advertising.

My Mailbox has been full this last few days which just proves that there is still some goodwill around.

So are you planning to visit any other shows in Ireland? The Iverk show in Piltown Co. Kilkenny is in August (28th) Pretty big show to my understanding. Would love to see your collection Scooby

The problem with all this is that whatever work we do for the Club is done FOC. Chris. Maddison, our Shop Manager, has taken 2 days out of his business and hitched his lorry up to a trailer and taken the tractors over there.

The Traction Engine Club of Ulster generously sponsored the ferry charges, and the Club will pay Chris. for the diesel. But there is the wear and tear on his lorry, his time, and all the grief that these things cause.

Then the Club has hired a mini-bus to take the other chaps over together with virtually the entire Club Shop.

All participants pay their own hotel bills, food, etc. and so everyone is out of pocket except the Club.

But we do it because we enjoy doing it and we meet some super people. The Irish lads support the DBTC tremendously and so Chris. thought we ought to give something back.

Personally I wasn't able to get to Ballymena but would love to come to Southern Ireland next year. I'm not sure if that's going to be possible or not. The lads need to get over this trip first.

I just wanted to say thanks for the club coming over to Northern Ireland for the show, it was an enjoyable 2 days and it was good to put faces to names.
I won the raffle today so i had the privelege of driving the last tractor in the final parade, a fine machine it is to drive. 92 david brown tractors today and 18 david brown albion implements, a good turnout as expected i will try and get some photos up tomorrow.
With some of these guys running the club and shop, the club is definately in safe hands and i hope to get another trip to meltham before the year is out.

Cheers, Darren.

Nice to see the club is being run by a crew of keen chaps who are promoting David Brown's and the Best Tractor Club on the planet. Happy to fork out their own dosh too (bear in mind folks, many of these people are from Yorkshire, they treat every coin and note like its their child!!)

If your reading this, and your not a member, I keep telling you, your missing out, as the Shopkeeper's milometer will prove, this club is going places!!

Well done to all conserned, spreading the David Brown Tractor word, keep up the good work!!

Emyr
