Next Club Event:
Next club event will be our annual show June 17,18,19,2016 at the show grounds. Follow us on Facebook or website for upcoming announcements right up to show time which is fast uproaching. Get involved with us and help our club grow for our 25th anniversary show and make it the best show yet.
Next club meeting is Sunday June 12,2016. This will be a pitch in at the registration building. A mailer will be coming out with all the details and times for this meeting. Plan on attending to the next meeting to catch up on the latest club news and projects. Also there will be discussion on our upcoming milestone, our 25 th annual show. Plan now to be ready for the show, I am challenging each and everyone one of our club members to get those tractors, gas engines, garden tractors, old trucks and cars, old equipment or whatever your collection includes, make a big effort to get any and all to the show this year regardless of color or brand and make our show field grow to the best and biggest display ever. Gas is cheaper and we want to impress our visitors to the show so they can tell everyone what they saw at the Johnson County Antique Machinery Show!
Some things in the works are as follows:
25th anniversary t shirts and possible other items, with a great start to some new additions last year we are going to be bringing back the old time cake and pie baking contest on Saturday( ladies and gents get involved), also will be having on Saturday the Antique Market back in the Heartnut shelter for the day, plus plans are being made to get the Farm Tractor Pull on Sunday pulled of this year. Last years weather conflicted with our plans but we will get it done. Sponsors are getting on board to help support this pull and are hopes to get it done with great response with the public getting involved. The Indiana State Fair donated several sets of bleachers last fall so seating shouldnt be a problem. We need some help when the warm weather hits to get some of the bleachers painted and some new seats installed. If you can jump in and help us out get with a board member or message us on our Facebook page and let us know so when the work begins so we can contact you.
We are proud to once again host another state show, the Indiana Massey Collectors Summer show this coming year. 2016 will be a great year and we need extra helpers and new ideas from the membership to make this show a memorable year. A lot of plans are already being put in place so get involved and make this years our greatest year yet. Contact Dwayne at 317-512-0493 or Tony at 317-710-4655 for any details

New additions to show grounds
Construction of our new registration building at the show grounds is nearly finished with the latest addition of concrete floor. It looks great. We have a work day recently and we got some finishing touches done. Wow what a great addition to our show! This will be a great addition to the folks that work our check in for members and vendors during our summer annual show. Check out our photos page or our face book page for updated photos. Generous donations from Max Fitzpatrick towards this project is very much appreciated. Also thanks to Shelby Materials for working with us on there donation and Milestone and all the crew for there donation of labor and finish work on the concrete floor. What a great group of local businesses to work with. We were also able to get concrete in the big gas engine building as well with all of these great folks support. Thanks also to Bob Willard for his great effort on arranging details on both concrete projects.
The Rural Smiths of Mid America, (blacksmith group) have been working on there building as well and it is progressing great. They can use some help on there project as well so jump in and help where you can. This group has been a great addition to our annual show and will be a great partner for years to come. In the coming weeks construction of this structure will help for a permanent place they can call home.
JCAMA is a Club devoted to the restoration and preservation of the farm tools and equipment of years gone by. Our Fathers and Forefathers used these to till the soil, sow the seeds, and reap the harvest.
JCAMA was started in the winter of January 1992. 35 Charter members started and formed the Club. That following September the first collection of Antique Machinery was brought together to have the first show.
The Club has grown to a great group of folks from all age groups and they enjoy bringing back our Farming Heritage to life for others to enjoy. Many changes have come along in the last several decades for farming.
One could only imagine what it was like to first farm with Horses or Oxen and then in later years be introduced to a new age, the gas engine, tractors and trucks.
Many of our club members from the older generation have many story’s to tell about how farming has changed throughout the years and the hardships that have went along with them to bring the Farming to what we know today.
JCAMA club members strive to bring back a little of that past every year at our show to educate the younger generation’s of today to hopefully appreciate what our Fathers and Forefathers have done for decades. Our goal is to give the older generations a chance to step back in time, and reminisce of the long ago forgotten past of our Farming Heritage.
Visit with us at our annual show the third weekend in June and see what we have to offer for the community. Our show grounds is located in the great Johnson County Recreation Park just west of the intersection of Highway 31 and ST. RD. 252 near Edinburgh Indiana and Camp Atterbury Military base.

At our 2012 show:
A great attraction for the 2012 annual show was a 1900 year old California redwood log that was carved into a three room house. The log is 33 foot long and around 9 foot across. In the off season it resides in the state of Florida. It has been displayed at several state and county fairs and has been a great attraction for years. This was an opportunity to see the massive size of the redwood log that only grows in the western United States. This is said to possibly be the oldest wood liveable structure known since the time of Christ. Click here for more allen-redwood
