Members of Branch 18 of the Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association are already busy with the preparations for hosting the 1998 National EDGE&TA Show & Business Meeting scheduled for June 12-14.
This National show will be held at the Fairgrounds in Chowchilla, California, which is located on Highway 99 in the center of the state of California, being equal distances between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
In addition, the visitors to this National show are encouraged to visit the Ag Museum only 10 miles away. This new museum has recently been built up by Charlie Parrish, an active member of Branch 18. Here you will find a variety of antique engines and related machines used during the past century in a frontier setting. Mr. Parrish has spent considerable time and money to make this a very attractive museum of California history. It is a 'must see' for all lovers of old iron. Charlie and his wife Sandra would be most happy to show you around. For further details feel free to contact Charlie or Sandra Parrish at 4498 East Highway 140, Merced, CA 95340 or phone 209-383-3628.
