The Arizona Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association held its first annual Superstition Mountain Show at Apache Junction, March 13 & 14, 1993. It was a great success with approximately 250 engines displayed and 78 tractors. These were engines displayed from five states and thanks to everyone who brought their displays to the show.

There was a 60 HP Western owned by Loyd Jones from Idaho. He and his wife spend their winters here in Arizona. Also, there were scale model engines owned by Herb and Elaine Glosnepp of Sun City. Henry and Dawn Miller brought a 15 HP Fairbanks. Gary Grim and family have a large display of old jacks. Another member from Tucson brought his Oil Pull, just to mention a few of the entrees.

We had a tractor pull in the morning, then a break so the engines could be viewed and everyone could get some lunch, then a pull in the afternoon.

Once again thanks to our ladies who did a super job selling all kinds of goodies they bake along with coffee, pop, snow cones and popcorn. They were located under a big tent along with our caterers, Charlie Cuda family and crew. There were bales of straw for people to sit while eating or just relaxing.

The front gate sold show buttons as entry tickets, T-shirts, caps, coffee mugs and raffle tickets for a 1 HP Sattley engine with the drawing on Sunday afternoon. Thanks to everyone who helped with this.

We feel this was a very successful first show. Thanks to everyone who brought engines, tractors, and displays, and to everyone who came to our show, after all, you make our shows a success. Special thanks to Glen Frederickson, Kent Reed and George O'Day, they really spent a lot of time and effort on this show.

Looking forward to seeing you here in Arizona next year!
