January 21, 2009

International Harvester scouts and trucks of oregon (IHSTO) announces the premier International Harvester enthusiast event in the western united states for 2009.

The Great Western Binder Bee 2009 edition is set for July 10 thru 12. As always, the venue will be western antique powerland in brooks, oregon. This is the fifth year for this event to be hosted by western antique power, inc. Along with powerland-affiliated member organizations.

The theme selected for the 2009 event will be:

“International Harvester ...keeps oregon moving"

displays will showcase the contributions that IH products have made to the industrial, agricultural, transportation, and recreational industries prevalent in the northwestern united states. This is a particularly appropriate focus as we are also celebrating the oregon statehood sesquicentennial this year.

The featured vehicle for this year’s event will be kept under wraps until the show opens to the public and be showcased in "vendor village", the hub of Binder Bee activities.

As always, the International Harvester kb 8 log rig will be available for viewing in the permanent collection of the pacific northwest truck museum, located on the grounds of antique powerland. This vehicle is fully functional and maintained by members of IHSTO under the direction of truck museum personnel.

Friday, July 10 is slated as vendor set-up and show participant move-in and meet and greet. In the best IHSTO tradition, we'll host a potluck dinner in the rv camping area for all registrants at 6pm.

A full schedule of participant meet and greet, show and shine, children’s activities, a parade of power of many show vehicles, and a catered participant barbecue dinner and raffle will fill Saturday’s agenda.

A long-standing tradition for the Binder Bee is the outstanding fare made available by the maguire brothers under the "shorty's boys texas bbq" banner! The boys will cater the Saturday evening raffle and awards presentation just like always!

IH vehicles and IH-related products will be on display throughout the weekend and a judging team will select the outstanding display examples for awards, highlighted by the ernie bisio award which honors oregon’s own ernie bisio who is a living legend in the International Harvester world!

Sunday, July 13 activities will include a trail ride for off road-capable vehicles led by the IHSTO trail boss, a continuation of the show and shine, and show participant visitation.

“vendor village” will include many specialty parts and service providers who are major supporters of International Harvester enthusiasts and end users around the country. Many other regional IH organizations will be in attendance representing agricultural machinery, construction equipment, household appliances, and stationary engines and equipment.

Response to "kidz zone" last year was overwhelming! So that activity will be expanded as more and more families spend their recreational time with us enjoying old iron. We now have children participating who have literally grown up having fun at the bee and have adopted willow creek railway as their own special place to hang out.

And check out all the attractions presented by the many powerland member organizations which are available to visitors during the bee. No way you can miss the oregon electric railway, the brooks depot museum, or the steam-powered saw mill operation! Check the powerland website, it's currently undergoing update for 2009 activities:

welcome to antique powerland

Plenty of camping space will be available along with accommodations for rv parking with water and electricity (no sewage hookups though). The campground will be available for Thursday afternoon (July 9) arrival if appropriate reservations are made in advance.

For additional information, registration packet, and an up-to-date schedule of events, contact International scouts and trucks of oregon/michael mayben at (510) 501-3680 or email: rodelizrd@gmail.com

Take time to visit the IHSTO organization website for updates regarding Binder Bee activities:

IHSTO main page

You will soon find a new look to the website, we're almost ready to show it off!

Registration information will be emailed to all former/current Binder Bee participants for whom we have an email address by April 15. For those who we do not have an email addy for, we will snailmail a registration package.

And a registration form in .pdf format will be posted here as well, download and mail to the address printed on the form.

Antique powerland has undergone (and continues to undergo) some major changes in the facility and business operations. For Binder Bee 2009, powerland will handle all camping reservations and related activities directly from their office. So if either rv reservations or dry camping reservations are needed for Binder Bee, please contact powerland directly at:

(503) 393-2424

information regarding powerland in general, steam-up 2009, and hotel/motel accommodations in the local area May be found on their website:

please let me reinforce the camping reservation changes for Binder Bee 2009!

"for participants desiring to reserve a camping space at powerland for the Great Western Binder Bee 2009, reservations must be made directly with powerland management. This includes both reservations for rv spaces and dry camping spaces. IHSTO/Binder Bee organizers will no longer be able to make camping arrangements through Binder Bee registration as in year's past.

Currently, it's not possible to make camping reservations on line with powerland. For camping reservations and other information regarding the powerland facilities, please contact powerland management staff by phone... (503) 393-2424 or by email...apmaoffice@eschelon.com.

Reservations for rv spaces should be made as early as possible due to the limited number of electrical hookups available."

Here's the general layout for Binder Bee 2009.

Chapter 30 of International Harvester collector's club will be joining us again this year, so the vehicle display area has been enlarged. So anyone that wants a spot under the trees/in the shade needs to check in early on Friday morning!
