    Are you coming up, Gary? If so, look me up. I'll be there every day. Don't know what I'll be doing yet, but just ask for the "Rev."

    Hopefully this happens and they don't have to cancel. I am planning on going Saturday. Should be a good time and perhaps the only show that may happen this year the way it's going.

    It will be interesting to see what the ER town board will do with a gathering of this size. Cranberry Fest follows in October and that brings in 20 to 30,000 people and your elbow to elbow in the fair grounds and a huge economic surge for the area. Idk cancel one and not cancel the other wouldn’t make sense. This will be very interesting to see how the town board handles these promotions just no way to social distance imo.

    Pete, it was approved by the town board. Of course, that is contingent upon covid staying level or down, if it goes up, it will probably be cancelled. Also, they are not expecting the crowds that Hay Days gets.

    Chuck I hope it happens very smart for Russ and crew to promote this show and fills a huge preseason void. I hope it happens and is successful. I was planning on attending the 2020 Milwaukee Snow Show but I don’t have much confidence that will happen.

    What I meant to say is they want something to do. Normally we go to a fair, or the tractor pull, or Hay days. But this year just isn't what they normally expect from summer. So they will enjoy going just to go somewhere that has something to do with what they enjoy.

    $50.00 for me and the wife to have the privilege of buying someone else's junque?.....LOL....or am I missing something?....live bands?, free beer pass?.....carnival rides?
    I like the idea of the event, but I think your overall attendance and take would be better and the whole event more successful with a more reasonable gate fee.
    Your vendors need bodies....and wallets.... to make bank.

Union Grove will be having a tractor pull in August! and I'm sure it will be a good show...knowing who it putting it together! DONT MISS IT!

    Dozin Through & Reaper, my husband's favorite tractor is the first one he ever bought a 1974 International 1066. Only thing left to do to her is a sweet paint job and it'll be like new. First time since we got married that we didn't go to the Budweiser Pull in Tomah, and that was because they canceled! One of the things we do every year that has been messed up by this whole debacle.

    Anyone heard what vendors they have lined up for this? Have family in the area, was thinking about coming up labor day weekend. Might delay a week if this will be a decent event.

    Excellent question and knowing how OEMS budget marketing money it might be tough to attend this event. So far Fall Snow Show in Milwaukee in October is on. I was hoping the Derby would have a follow up announcement so we know the Vendor list.

    As of Wednesday everything is still up in the air somewhat. Believe they are waiting for full commitments in some areas before they make anymore announcements. My gut feeling is it will be a great time and many vendors as long as covid doesn't spike. Fones have been busy. There are definitely a lot of preparations going on, both with vendors and the facilities. I wouldn't think that this would be unless it is a major go. Might know more by the end of next week. I will be working at the track a few days on a couple of projects. Rev

    O.K. here's is info as of Friday 3P.M. Skidoo will have their 21's here as well as Artic Cat. Yamaha is still in a decision with Polaris saying a definite "No" at this time. There are 107 Swapers committed as of right now. Fly Racing will have their complete '21 line up here as well as other vendors [don't have the specifics on them]. No other info at this time but things are starting to come together really well for the Derby and Eagle River at this time. This is all straight from the office and authorized for me to pass on. Of course, this also depends on the "covid" situation, but as it stands, everything is a definite "Go."

    It's the only event of it's kind happening this year, so it's probably going to be a hit. But, $25 to walk in the gate to buy someone else's stuff. No for me. It's not Haydays. Make it $10 and greatly increase your audience.

    $25 no way for this guy.

Some exciting things announced during that video including a Friday night race event and a Band in the Expo hall. If you are thinking of attending, i encourage you to watch and video and monitor more announcements from the Facebook site. There was also some big news announced for the 2021 race season. Rev.

    i thought i read that its not going to happen because the venues where theyre held are being used for makeshift hospitals.
    not necessarily to keep people from gathering

    Wow! What a weekend. Busy, busy, busy. The turnout was far better than expected. Friday show was awesome and even when the rains came on Saturday, it was packed between 10-2:30. Crowds, swapers and vendors all had a good time, with most asking if we were going to do it again! "We'll see." Had some minor glitches and few complaints and learned a few things. It was pretty awesome considering it was put together in about 6 weeks! It was a great time for the Derby and Eagle River. Rev

    We had a very good turn out. We really appreciated that we had a show to attend and a event to get people fired up for snow season. On Saturday we started out the day great with good crowds but I think the rain didnt help in the afternoon. If they have it again next year Pat's will be there.

    Sorry for the late reply. Left Monday A.M. on an 1100 mile bike trip. First trip with the Spyder! I wasn't part of the show. I'm the Track Chaplain and yes I was involved with some of the things that went on, plus some inside info. It certainly was an great way to showcase the track. The new owners have doing a wonderful job with all aspects of running the track. From what I have heard, those that race are also very appreciative. Bigger and better things are in the works for the future. Rev.
