BF Avery Collectors and Associates holds two events each year at various locations, a Winter Meeting and a Summer Show.  The Winter Meeting is usually hosted by a club member in their hometown area.  It typically is a two day affair with the first day, usually a Friday, for socialization among the members and often includes touring highlight(s) of the area, tractor related or otherwise.    Then the annual business meeting is held on the second day, usually a Saturday.   Members are always welcome to bring their tractors and equipment for display.

The Summer Show is hosted by a local tractor club that invites the B. F. Avery Collectors and Associates to participate in their show.   The B. F. Avery family of tractors and implements are billed as a “FEATURED.”   Anyone and everyone is invited to exhibit your B. F. Avery family of items, i. e., tractors, implements and any other B. F. Avery paraphernalia,  at the show.  If you are not a member, we will be delighted if you decide to join our organization.

If you are a member of a local club and would like more information on hosting our club in a summer show, then contact Gary Duff using the form under the Contact Us menu choice.

Upcoming Summer Shows and Winter Meetings

We need hosts for the 2020 and 2021 Winter meetings.

.We would like to hold them in the south during the winter months rather than spring. We are “pleading” with members in southern states to think about having a “Winter Meeting.”   THE REASONING?  We could have the annual meeting in a WARM climate in the late winter/early spring and avoid pushing our two shows so close together in the late spring & summer months.  Also it would make it easier for our “southern members” to attend a show and it wouldn’t interfere with planting crops, etc. If you would consider it, the board can give you help and ideas. We just need a place, preferably in  Jan,  Feb, Mar or early Apr.  The date is up to you.   The need is in 2020 & beyond. Please give Gary Duff a call at 989-635-2619 or 810-357-2673(cell) or email at redtractorman@yahoo.com (or contact  any board member) to talk about it. We’d all love to come and visit the Warm States in the Winter!

Please join us at our 2018 Winter Meeting in Blountstown, Florida and begin planning for our 2018 Summer Show in Forest, Ontario, Canada.
