Antique power association summer show coming up

| July 11, 2018

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Antique Power Association’s (CCAPA) annual summer show is about more than tractors.

“We are about the preservation of old farming equipment and also are open to all old cars, trucks and anything farm related,” said Ed Skerness, president of the group. “We just like things to be at least 25-years-old.”

This year’s show will be held Saturday and Sunday, July 14 – 15 at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds. Each year the show features a different make of tractors. The 2018 event focuses on Allis Chalmers, but all makes and models are welcome.

Activities, games, entertainment and displays will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and from 9 to 6 p.m. Sunday. There also will be a church service at 9:10 a.m. on Sunday morning and new this year will be ice cream made by Bob Kiser with help from club members.

“My favorite part of the show is talking to the people that bring things and share how they restored it or where it came from,” Skerness said.

In addition to the summer show, Coshocton County Antique Power Association members participate in parades, display their equipment at events, go on tractor cruises, host a fall plow day, work on a Christmas project and gather for a dinner in November. Monthly meetings are held at 3 p.m. on the second Sunday of the month in the TSC conference room.

“Our meetings have a lot to do with planning our show, but we also help each other out with questions about our pieces,” Skerness said. “Further down the road we’d like to have a club house that we can have meetings at and display things like the antique corn shredder we bought and the wagon that is new and will be displayed for the first time at the show.”

The Coshocton County Antique Power Association (CCAPA) annual summer show is a free, family friendly event.

“We invite everyone to come out to look and see what we have and share stories,” Skerness said.

The 2019 show will be held July 13-14 and feature Farmall.
