I’ve been active with the Old Wood and Metal Machine Operators (OWAMMO’s) for about 2.5 years and now help organize our twice-yearly gatherings. We have a swap meet and demos. Much of our interests are restoring and using older equipment. If you are in to “Old American Iron”, this is a place to be and a group to meet. Our gatherings have gotten larger enough that we have moved them to Branson, MO and made it a family affair. I hope you can join us this year. Here is a pared down verion of Dan Wyatt’s invitation:
Please join us in Hollister / Branson, Mo. on October 22 & 23, 2010 for a big old-fashioned “old wood and metalworking machinery swap meet”, and the associated exhibits, demonstrations, auction and workshop goodies that we have planned around this family oriented event. The setting for our 8th OWAMMO’s event this fall is nestled on a hill side around a neat old restored railroad depot (please see pics of the area on our web site listed below). We have had some interest in blacksmithing and model engines over the years so we decided this year to invite several clubs and organizations from these 2 subjects to come have fun with us. We are excited that many new people will be joining us who are akin to our interests. Also remember that the Hollister and Branson areas offer a multitude of wonderful attractions, shopping, excellent restaurants, and things for the spouse and children to experience so please have your family look over the “Branson” link under “EVENT” on our web page.
Our web page http://www.owammos.com is updated almost daily, and registration is now open, so please check it over and register! The web site features registration, hotel information, scheduling, and other pertinent information regarding the event. The web site has the most current and pertinent event information available, so please visit it often.
The cost for the gathering will be only $25.00 per person for the two-day event if you register before October 15th, and your Spouse and children (under 18) get in for free! After October 15th the cost of registration will be $30.00, but again, your Spouse and children (under 18) get in for free.
We honor all Disabled Veterans, and for those Disabled Veterans who wish to attend our event we are waving registration costs for you and your immediate family. We thank you for your service to our Country. Please send me a private email (oldtriumphs<at>hotmail<dot>com) and I will arrange to wave our registration costs.
Thanks ~ Dan Wyatt
