    Always a good time, even if it rains (but it's nicer if it doesn't)
    I think it starts at 7am
    Saturday, Sept. 17th
    23100 NE 10th Ave, Ridgefield, WA
    COME EARLY, STAY A WHILE, THEN LEAVE!

    Dave…are you trying to keep the event all to yourself or do you have information I don’t?

    The Iron Ranch has always been held on Saturday, not Sunday and Jerry Germeau’s mass email lists the date as Saturday Sept 17[SUP]th[/SUP], not Sunday the 18[SUP]th[/SUP].

    Man oh man!!! Bad mistake, but too long of an explanation as to why. THANK YOU!!!! and I'm SO SORRY!!! I'll edit that in my post. Although a private swap meet wouldn't be so bad. I could name my own price for all those hard to find parts that I've been lookin' fer.

    I've got a wedding on the coast to be at that afternoon but I'll be at the Ranch EARLY AM with the "flashlight brigade"....Should be a good turnout, always a great time! If you've never been it's a "must see" for the Pacific NW, if for nothing else than Al Shurmans collection of toys, bikes, cars, carnival rides, steam tractors, etc.... See you guys there!

    Myself and the rest of the Canadian contingency will be there with bells on as always. Im bringing my Whizzer for the ride again this year. And Im also bringing this Monark for sale or trade. Also we have a ride planned for Portland on Saturday night with the local Schwinn gang "The Beligerante" if anybody is interested.

    Maybe you could post your wish list and somebody could bring some of the stuff you're looking for.

    The items I'm looking for are:

    Handlebars (1960s Schwinn Middleweight)
    Front Wheel (1960s Schwinn Middleweight, 26")
    Bullet Headlight (1960s Schwinn Middleweight)

    I'm also there to browse. :)

    The post that was here probably wasn't the smartest thing I ever did, so I'm removing it.
