We have a club up and running now in the UK with the demise of ACMOC Chapter two.Its adding members at a steady rate.The Link club AGM will be held in South Wales in May,will try to arrange a visit to K J Services.Would also like to get hold of a CMN banner to display.
Even though the Link club is in the main, a club for Cat enthusiasts,its members own many types of well known machines.At the AGM, there will be machines on display from IH Drotts to Hymacs.Its only £25 to join us,you will get four quality magazines per year and a chance to attend working events around the UK.
My own Drott website is doing well with members from around the World including John Drott jr.

Hello Graham,
As you say, Barrys collection is a credit to him, and well worth a visit.
I'm looking forward to the meeting there on Saturday.
Fred

Its great to see these classic machines saved.As you know Barry bought the 933 off me, also the 125, in his pre restoration line up :lol: . We all help each othere out in this area as you know Fred. I guess there are a lot of interesting machines in the South Wales area from the D2 to the Cat 666.
As far as tractor and machinery clubs,I thing the fun has got to be put back in to this great hobby and get away from the formality.We get enough of that in our day to day life.New and younger members will be attracted and not put off with stuffyness that plague most club setups The youngsters are the future of this hobby,without new blood the hobby will die out.
