IHC Chapter 41 Business Meeting, June 11, 2017
The meeting was called to order by Tinker Moats.
The minutes of the Board Meeting were read by Cynthia Shaver. A motion was made to accept the minutes as read. It was seconded and approved.
The minutes from the April Business Meeting were read . As there were no corrections a motion was made to accept the minutes as read. It was seconded and approved.
The Treasurer’s Report was given by Jennifer Puffenbarger. The balance in the account is
$4574.14. Jennifer noted that there was still an amount of $1000.00 to $1200.00 to be paid to the Fairgrounds for the Summer Show. A motion was made to accept the Treasurer’s Report as given. It was seconded and approved.
Relay for Life Report: The amount for Relay For Life from the Auction is $4344.00. The Team was 7th out of 92 Teams at the Relay For Life Event held May 5, 2017 at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds. The total raised at the Event was $10,377.50. Becky thanked everyone for their help and donations to the Auction.
Proposal for New Cabinet at the McCormick Farm: The International Harvester Collectors
Charitable Trust has been set up to help fund the cost of this cabinet that will house the reaper models. The estimate for the cabinet is $11,000. Tinker reported on a letter that had been sent to all IHC Presidents from the Trustees of the Charitable Trust. It was noted that Chapter 42 of North Carolina had pledged $500.00. A motion was made for our Chapter to pledge $1000.00. It was seconded and approved.
There was discussion about the construction of the building for the Farm Museum in the
Shenandoah Valley. A motion was made by Dixie Teter to donate $1000.00 for this project. It was seconded by Raymond Grogg. The motion was approved.
Winter Convention: After further discussion about the Convention it was decided that the Chapter would not help with the Convention planned for 2020.
National Auction: There was discussion about helping other Chapters with the Auction that is tentatively scheduled for the 4th weekend of October, 2020. A motion was made by Jerry McDonald to help with the Auction. It was seconded by Winona Scott. The motion carried.
Inside Vendors: David Seal asked if anyone had inside vendors. If so, please let him know.
Exhibitors: Due to insurance regulations that exhibitors must be IHC members, there was discussion concerning some exhibitors from last year that had static exhibits. As the Chapter wants to encourage everyone to become a member, David Seal suggested that the Chapter could give the exhibitors, who were sent a letter about the insurance rules, a waiver this year and the Chapter would pay the National Dues for this year only so they could participate in our Show. We hope they will renew their membership and also become a Chapter Member. A motion was made by Tyrone Scott to accept this suggestion. It was seconded by Roger Baker. The motion was approved.
SetUp: The setup will be the same as last year.
Becky Seal suggested that we have a registration table for the items donated for the Auction.
This suggestion was agreed to.
As there was no new business Tinker asked for a motion to adjourn. A motion was made by Becky Seal and seconded by Dennis Carr. The motion was approved.

Red Tractors – Collectors Edition Book
This award-winning history of International Harvester and Case IH tractors includes data and photos of every model built from 1958 to 2013, as well as in-depth information about how these tractors were designed and constructed. With interviews of engineers and executives, the book covers how the 40 and 60 series were created, and thoroughly covers the red tractors from the 1960s through the 1980s. The book also traces the innovations and struggles of the final days of International Harvester. The authors unearthed a treasure trove of concept drawings and photos of prototype machines to shed new light on how these tractors were created. The book includes the exciting story of the creation of the Case-IH Magnum, an innovative machine that blends some of the great engineering done by IH with the Cummins engine built by Case. The modern era of Case IH is also included, with the story of the creation of the Quadtrac as well as the entire line of tractors. With a mix of new photography of some of the most exceptional collectible models in existence along with hundreds of previously unpublished photographs, this thorough book is the most authoritative guide on red tractors ever published.
The Collector’s Edition has all of thsee great features:
- Gorgeous leather-covered and stamped book in handmade clamshell case covered in black Saifu cloth with printed interior.
- Includes four previously unpublished images of tractor prototypes which were never built. Each image is a heavy stock 8×10-inch photograph suitable for framing, with the story of the prototype’s design, evolution, and ultimate demise printed on the back.
- Four images are available ONLY with the Collector’s Edition and Serial Numbered Collector’s Edition! These images will not be released to other media in any form!
- This authorized history of International Harvester and Case IH tractors includes data and photos of every model built from 1958 to 2013, as well as in-depth information about how these tractors were designed and constructed.

With a mix of new photography of some of the most exceptional collectible models in existence along with hundreds of previously unpublished photographs, this thorough book is the most authoritative guide on red tractors ever published.
