The Indiana Chapter #7 fourth quarter meeting was discussed. This is usually held at the same time as the Indiana Chapter #7 Plow and Tillage Day. It was reported that so far no one has stepped up to host a Plow and Tillage day. After some discussion concerning Indiana Chapter #7 hosting the National Auction during the fourth quarter, it was suggested that the fourth quarter meeting could possibly be held at the Ted Everett Auction Facility to better acquaint our members with the Auction site. A motion was made by Dwayne to have a fourth quarter meeting for Indiana Chapter #7 at the Ted Everett Auction Facility on October 9th or 10th. The motion was seconded by Norman Jackson. Motion carried. There will be no Plow and Tillage Day this year.
Randy Barrett moved to adjourn, seconded by Ben Chestnut, motion carried.
