The seventh annual show June 6 & 7, 1992, at Kempton, Pennsylvania, had more spectators, more flea market vendors, more activities, which included an informal, come-as-you-are-meal served by the Community Center kitchen people, and also the promised professional pull sled for tractors.

Rain Friday and Saturday undoubtedly kept some exhibitors away, but not the spectators, after the sunshine arrived about 11 A.M. on Saturday. The shingle mill, broom and basket makers were new additions for our show, and many new people joined the club during the show. The kiddie tractor pull on Sunday afternoon always draws people and contestants. The farm tractor pull, the teeter-totter, barrel roll, blindfolded driving contest, slow tractor race and slowest stationary engine contest were some of the variety of activities. These activities require people to plan and conduct them, a gate committee, sales people for our club advertising and souvenir items, plus the registration and hospitality people, and we give them all a big 'Thank You'. A special thanks to the people who donated items for the very successful bake sale.

The 1993 show will be three days instead of the two day event we've had for the past seven years. Featured in advertising will be the Associated line of engines, which will be on the caps and plaques. Also, if present plans materialize, there will be tractor pulls run by an organization of tractor pullers. Watch for more info in our ads.
