This year's show was blessed with very comfortable weather. We had many visitors to our reunion, and as always, it was nice to have the chance to visit with one another and catch up on one another's latest acquisitions and projects. One new thing that went on was former president of our club, Bill Stahl, and some friends and family steamed apple butter and sold it in pints to help raise money for our land fund. It tastes and smells delicious! Thanks, Bill! Our feature line of Massey Harris was well represented. Thanks go out to all the volunteers who make our show possible, the exhibitors, and those who donate the use of materials and equipment to our club. Please take some time and feast your eyes on some of the fine equipment that was displayed at our show this year. Click on the thumbnail photos below to be taken to the full size photo.

An incredible spark show Friday night!
You can see in some of the photos the ash and sparks raining down from burning the sawdust in the fireboxes of the engines - one of the main ingredients for a spark show. I unfortunately missed the best part - they had three engines going at once later in the evening. Come and watch sometime. As long as the weather is not too dry or too wet, we put on a good show!
