    Ploughing Match & Event - Dates Announcements

    Admin has altered the forum Calender (toolbar at top of page) so that members can now submit dates/info for ploughing matches, rallies or events.
    These will be held until approved by a member of the mod team which will then make them visible.

    We hope this will be better than the sticky in the Auction reports board which will be removed.

    Discussion about dates posted can be carried on here in the classics board as normal

    Thanks to Sam_TM who has already moved earlier entries into the calender.

    Excellent idea - however I've just added something with the wrong date - the national run should be tomorrow

    "24th July - Cambridge Vintage Sale - word has it that the late, great Fred Dibnah's Aveling and Porter steam tractor is up for auction"

    Yes it's in the steam section. I shall be going to the sale, 1,000's of people, and if it's dry it's a good day out. If you are not buying a visit on Friday 23rd. gives you space to look at most lots. Food stalls etc. on the ground.
    Catalogues are expensive but there is an on line site at Cheffins and follow link to Vintage auctions. Pictures and descriptions.
