AC & Simplicity Hats & Clothing

I was just going to add a couple of pictures to Josh's topic on the Simplicity hat he just got. But when I took out my camera and started snapping pics I thought it would be a better idea to start my own thread; so here goes.

First up are my club hat; t shirts; and sweat shirt. I also have the club mousepad and I can't find my white club Tractor of the Month hat. It is around here somewhere.

Brenda and her boss at Sandy Lake Implement in Pa. have been generous over the years. Each hat represents a visit to their business for parts buying.

I have an AC hat and an AGCO hat shown here. I also have a couple of straw sun hats with AC bands on them. They are out in the shop so no pics today.

I have a hat and golf shirt from the Allis Chalmers Club of Ontario of which I am a member.

And I have many t shirts and hats from GOTO's over the years. The first GOTO I attended was in Ilderton Ont. in 1994 but I didn't buy a hat or shirt at that time. I wasn't big time into Allis then and went to the show because it is my local show which just happened to be featuring the GOTO and Allis in general.  First hat I got was at the GOTO in LaGrange In. in 1999. Please excuse the dirty hat. It has been in a closet for years and I forgot it needs to be washed.

Next is a t shirt from the GOTO in Brigden Ont. in 2000 at the Western Ont. Steam Threshermens Association show.

2001 was the GOTO in Ft Meade Florida at the Florida Flywheelers show with a hat and shirt and then in 2011 at the same show when they held the GOTO again where I bought just a hat.

At the GOTO in Hickory Corners Mi. in 2003 I got a t shirt.

In 2004 and 2013 at the GOTOs in Canandaigua NY at the Pageant of Steam shows I bought a shirt both times.

In 2008 the GOTO was held in Portland In. where I bought a golf shirt.

In 2009 the eastern GOTO was hosted by the Allis Chalmers Club of Ont. at the Milton Ont. All Colour Show. I am a member of this club and served on the organizing committee. I bought a t shirt and a dress shirt with the GOTO logo on the front and  2009 Committee Milton on the back. Only the dress shirt is shown.  The GOTO was a huge success with over 600 Allis tractors and pieces of equipment including 7 D21's.

In 2010 I went to the GOTO in Grey Tn. I got a hat there but have misplaced for now so no pic.

 

2014 saw the GOTO in LaPorte In. where I got a hat.

Last summer I went to the GOTO in Oakley Mi. where thanks to Josh's enthusiasm there was a really good turn out of L&G stuff to compliment all the full size tractors and equipment. A little less rain would have been nice though. I bought a shirt at that show. The GOTO east is in Grey Tn. again in April and the west show is in Illinois.

I had one of those when I was a kid. Not sure if Dad bought it or the dealer gave it to us. I remember I didn't like wearing it - too hard unlike other straw hats at the time. Wish I still had it. 

Dave - those are SWEET!

Are the SimpletrACtors hats still available?  They must have been done before I was a member.
