We are the Northeast Rockbusters, the New England Chapter of the Historical Construction Equipment Association (HCEA) which is headquartered in Bowling Green Ohio. We would like to welcome you to our organization and let you know what's in store for you if you become a member of our organization. First - there is no requirement to own or operate equipment to be a member. All you need is just to be interested.
As a member you will receive, "Rockbuster News", our chapter newsletter. The newsletter announces upcoming meetings, includes articles of historical interest, and stories from our most recent adventures. We also publish classified ads free for our members. We have an annual schedule of events listing; this includes not only antique equipment shows, but tractor and truck shows as well. This list is the most complete you will find. It alone is worth the price of membership.
We meet at least six times a year, usually at a member's home or shop. By moving around we can see what our fellow members have for "toys", as well as their everyday equipment. Meetings are usually held on a Sunday with a "show and tell" session. Members bring photo albums, old literature, stories, etc., all being items of interest. Technical problems and questions, about where to find obsolete machines or parts have been answered at our meetings. The best part is the people you meet, and getting the "free history lessons".
Northeast Rockbuster's dues are $20.00 per calendar year. In order to be a member of a chapter, you are required to be a member of the National Organization, (HCEA); dues for HCEA are $35.00 per calendar year and can be paid with your Northeast Rockbuster Chapter dues.
As a member of the HCEA, you will receive a magazine called Equipment Echoes, which is published quarterly. As a member, we would love to see your attendance at the HCEA International Convention. This show is something you probably have never seen before. Displays just don't sit there; they are out there digging, hauling, and working. You'll hear the sounds, see the sights, and smell the smells... with fellow iron enthusiasts. It's the time of the year all the "Big Boys" look forward to, when we get to take out our "Big Boy Toys" and play in the dirt. So, welcome all new-comers! Pack your work boots and your play clothes when you come to a show, and if you play really nice, you might get to run a machine or two. (That's with the owner's permission, of course!)
