We got a letter from Rollin Schnieder, an Extension Safety Specialist from the Cooperative Extension Service at the University of Nebraska, in response to Peter Wing's cartoon which appeared on page 11 of our August 1990 issue. 'The only time we should ever consider loading forward is if we have a cable to assist in loading and unloading. Even that is secondary to backing the unit onto the tractor or tilt bed.' We appreciate Schnieder's timely safety reminder.
It's hard to believe, but October is the month when we send out notices to show contacts seeking information for the 1991 Directory. If you are your show's 'official contact person' and you have moved or turned your duties over to someone new, let us know as soon as possible! And, should you discover a new show in your late summer travels, don't hesitate to drop us a line to see whether we might include it in our 1991 edition.
