Fourth Prize

~ Notice to viewers:  Our website has been and is experiencing several problems.  Many pictures that were on, (and are back on), several of our event pages ~have, from time to time, mysteriously decided to disappear, all by themselves. Slide shows, after being installed according to directions supplied, have so ~many blank windows in them that I have totally given up trying to use the slide show feature and when you go to the website, you never know what any ~given page is going to look like, as many times, the information, pictures and/or the button locations have changed, again, mysteriously, all by ~themselves.  I have called GoDaddy's "customer service department" and after spending considerable time with them on several different occasions, they ~have not been able to give me any solutions to correct the problems so, if you experience similar problems when you try to view the pictures, etc., that ~have been posted on any of our event pages, I apologize for the shoddy appearance of the site due to the less than favorable "customer service" that ~I have received.  The latest answer I have gotten from "customer service" is that I will have to, "go to their new, upgraded program" and start all over again ~as they have made no provisions to move any of the information, pictures and/or pages from the "old website program" to their new version.  Needless to ~say, I will not do that.  In my humble opinion, using a GoDaddy website leaves a lot to be desired but for now, with all of the time I have invested in this ~site, that is all that I can do.                        Lou Kocon Jr.

 ~For 2021, our club will be having another antique tractor raffle.  The prizes will be as follows:

~Fourth Prize will be a Ford toy tractor also pictured below.

~Tickets can be purchased at any event our club attends or can be ordered through "Snail ~Mail" by sending your request to Lou Kocon Jr., 732 Wisman Rd., Woodstock, Virginia, ~22664.  Tickets are $3.00 each, 2 for $5.00 or a book of 10 for $20.00.  Make checks out to ~M.A.T.& G.E.C., Inc..  The drawing will be at the AutumnFest event which should be held at ~the Shenandoah County Fairgrounds in early October of 2021.  If AutumnFest is canceled ~again, the drawing will be held at our building site at The Shenandoah County Fairgrounds ~early in October of 2021.  The exact date and time will be posted here and in local ~publications.  Come on now.  You know that you don't have one of these so you must need ~one and you know you want one........ no matter what "the better half" says!  


That's all.  There's nothing more to see here so mooove along now, folks.

First Prize

~ Our biggest project to date is underway.  Our club, The Massanutten Antique Tractor & Gasoline ~Engine Club, Inc. has entered into a partnership with The Shenandoah County Fair Association to ~construct a museum and a display area for antique tractors and antique farming equipment.  This ~is the beginning of "Chapter Two" for our club.  We would gladly accept any assistance of any type ~from any individual, business or company.  We have completed Phase I, the foundation and the ~slab and at this point, we have Phase II, the museum building, dried in but we still have to finish ~the inside with electric, sheetrock, painting, etc..  Then it will be on to Phase III, the covered ~display area.  For more information, contact Treasurer Lou Kocon at 540-459-7768 or President ~Jim Stup at 540-465-5066.  As this project advances, I will post pictures of the progress on this ~website.
