Fairchester Hose Haulers Antique Apparatus Muster  

Note: Due to inability to reach agreement with the Parks Dept. Fairchester Hose Haulers must cancel our Muster/Show scheduled for June 30th this year. Unfortunately the changed layout of, and restrictions at the venue we had planned would limit us to about 30 rigs. Since weíd hate to turn anyone away we decided to look for a different place to hold the event. We're forced to opt out of this alternate venue also due to the high fees we would have had to pay to hold our event there. We are continuing to search for a place, but since time is running short to hold an event on June 30th we must cancel. Hopefully we will be back with something later in the year. We are terribly sorry if this cancellation 

causes inconvenience to anyone, but we have no other choice at this
