The 1985 Boswell Show was held in perfect weather and the number of attendees continues to increase yearly. The centerpiece of our show was Eddie Dalton's Case steam traction engine paired with the separator owned by Gary Guthridge. The Dillman brothers attracted lots of attention each of the three days with the skillful operation of their sawmill.

For the first time, Carter Dalton Awards were made. Exhibit winners were: Jim Coyle for his model steam traction engine; Jerry Lothridge who exhibited a nicely restored 4 WD Massey Harris; and Eddie and Shirley Cox for their 6 HP Associated Jerry Boy.

Our hoosier hospitality remains as friendly as ever and we've formed an official group known as the Illiana Antique Power Association. We're looking forward to another great year and hope you'll visit us at the beautiful Benton County Fairgrounds August 15, 16 and 17.
