Due to wet weather, the racetrack infield at Lorain County Fairgrounds was unavailable for use, so with last minute changes, most of the heavy equipment was displayed in the main parking lot. This gave us more room for threshing and the sawmill, so we may continue this at future shows. A number of clubs joined us to make this a fun three days. They include The American Indian Motorcycle Club, of Lorain County, Vintage Motor scooter Club, Ohio Watch Fob Collectors, The Railroad Heritage Society (they bring a train load of steam fans from the Orville area), Jordan's Farm Toys, and new this year, The American Truck Historical Society. There were three days of gas engines, steamers, sawmilling, shingle making, drag saw, lots of gas tractors, and an antique tractor pull. Lots of good food, and a large flea market kept folks happy.

The 1998 show will be at the Lorain County Fairgrounds September 18-20, and we will be featuring equipment manufactured by A. D. Baker Company of Swanton, Ohio. Hope to see you there!
