EDGE&TA Vice President 2292 Lake Morena Drive Campo, California 91906 619-478-5500 Fax 619-478-5502, www.cliffnorthcote@nhmhc.com

As we are now entering the year 2001, I hope everyone has had a merry Christmas and a safe New Year. Many of you may be digging out of snow, but some of us in the southwest, are enjoying the nice weather and are out looking for rusty iron. Personally, this has been a very good winter with many great finds.

I would like to share some information and changes to the Hall of Fame for Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association. The EDGE&TA Hall of Fame was established in 1998 in the interest of honoring those who have made significant contributions to the preservation, collection, and exhibition of antique tractors, engines and equipment. The judges will be chosen by the Hall of Fame chairman and will remain anonymous. The honorees will receive a personal engraved plaque commemorating their induction into the Hall of Fame. Do you know an EDGE&TA member that deserves to be recognized in the Hall of Fame? (Posthumous submissions will be accepted with past EDGE&TA membership). We will be selecting up to four inductees, if qualified submissions are received. Each submitted package must include a background sheet of accomplishments, a brief summary of why this individual should be given this honor, with address and phone number of inductee. Examples of accomplishments are, but not limited to: club offices held, involvement in preserving our hobby, and equipment restored, etc. Inductee's submission should be mailed to Jerry Mac Martin, 570 Corliss Way, Campbell, CA 59008 or Fax: (408) 378-1390 or e-mail at jerrymm@earth-link. net no later than March 15, 2001.
